This week on the Knowledge Brokers Podcast, Byron Lazine, Tom Toole, and Lisa Chinatti start the conversation with housing inventory, which is still near record lows.
From there, they turn to confusing headlines used by the mainstream media and how it impacts consumers, as well as any agents who aren’t doing their homework and using reliable sources.
Then the conversation turns to the spring housing market and whether it will be prolonged this year (or delayed), which segues to homeowners feeling the lock-in effect and recent stats on seller expectations.
Stay to the end to learn which publications cleared the air about what the “new federal mortgage fee” really is and whom it will affect the most.
