On this week’s episode of the Knowledge Brokers Podcast, Byron Lazine and Tom Toole start the conversation with the news that housing inventory is under one million again, which is likely to keep home prices from seeing any significant drops.
The conversation wrapped up with speculation as to the next Fed meeting on February 1st, with 98% of survey respondents expecting a rate increase of 25 basis points.
The final bit of good news was an increase of 25% increase in purchase applications, followed by some details on an upcoming “Best Agent Hacks” event.
