Podcast: How To Read Purchase Application Data Correctly

Today’s podcast discusses the state of the MBA purchase application data, which is already below 2008 levels and almost back to the lows in 2014. I talk about adequately reading this data line because it can confuse some. I give my take on the recent midterms as well. For those who know me well, I wouldn’t say I like poly ticks, and many blood-sucking parasites. 


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 recently wrote about this subject with many charts, of course, and pushed on the fact that declining new listing data is negative on demand that people aren’t focusing on.


Life comes at your fast; tomorrow’s podcast will be aired on Monday and will talk about the inflation data and the significant drop in mortgage rates today. However, I did write about that today and what to look for next year on inflation data.
