“I am thrilled to join Trulia and lead its dedicated research team in delivering real-world insights that will help people better understand the trends impacting America’s cities and their local housing market,” said Romem. “More than ever, it’s now a critical time to follow housing. Today, along with the next few years to come could be the most interesting time in decades to study housing and land use policy in America, as longstanding approaches face new challenges.”
