Podcast: Higher Rates, Not Lower Rates Create More Inventory!

Today, we discuss Sarah Wheeler’s significant loss when she tried to debate me on the Mortgage Rate Lockdown and why I have always believed higher rates create more inventory as weakness in demand can facilitate the days on the market growing. We also discuss the wild ride of mortgage rates lately.


For those who prefer a YouTube channel, HousingWire does have one now.


Every weekend for HousingWire, we bring out the weekly HousingWire Tracker report, where I take a deep dive into the current and forward-looking housing data lines so you can be up to date with the data lines that matter in housing. If you would like to join HW Plus to have access to the tracker, please use my LoganVIP20 code.
