Podcast: Can 8% Mortgage Rates Bring Down Home Prices?

Today’s podcast discusses the topic: can 8% mortgage rates finally bring down home prices? We have a different marketplace this year vs. last year, so some of the housing data doesn’t look the same as the previous year; existing home sales were crashing, and home prices were falling month to month. That wasn’t just the seasonality soft period.


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.
