Podcast: Do We Finally Have A Mortgage Rate Lockdown Problem?

Today’s podcast goes over something that I never used to believe in before, but I have opened the possibility of the U.S. having a mortgage rate lockdown issue.


I am no longer writing for my blog; all my work can be found at HousingWire; you can use my LoganVIP20 code to join HousingWire Plus. Also, I can’t join Twitter Spaces, a podcast, or an interview unless it goes through Press@HWMedia.com first.

I wrote about this issue today and tried to give some short and long historical context to this discussion. I also focused on what happened this year when mortgage rates jumped from 5.25% to 6.25%.


Tomorrow morning I will be on Squawk Box to talk about the United States rental market and CPI Tuesday. Don’t forget, Shelter inflation is 43% of core CPI, so it’s a big deal.

New: 9/13/2022 interview on CNBC on why shelter inflation will lag, and the growth rate cooling is a 2023 story. This interview was done before the CPI report. 


Today at the Future Proof 2022 event, I met some FinTwit friends.
Michael and Ben from Animal Spirits, Sam Ro and Callie Cox.

I hope to see some of you soon as I will be traveling to Las Vegas, Boston, Miami twice, Nashville, and San Diego and speaking at other events before the year ends.

The 2022 HousingWire Annual Event will be held in Scottsdale, Arizona, October 3-5th.
