Podcast: Homeownership, Rates & Recession!

Today’s podcast goes over a lot of different topics. We discussed mortgage rates and the recession red flag model, another variable identified more clearly. I also talk about the state of homeownership in America and why I was bearish on this data in the last cycle and more bullish in this decade. Finally, I go into the recent new homes sales data and why everyone should consider the home sales data we had earlier in the year as backward-looking.
