Manage episode 352962165 series 1248804
Are you sitting on the sidelines waiting for lower mortgage rates? Are you wondering whether the Fed is “doing the right thing” to fight inflation? Would you like a clear, simple explanation as to why mortgage rates are so high and when they might come down? The economy has a lot of moving parts that can make it difficult to see the big picture and to know what’s coming next. In this episode, you’ll hear from mortgage expert Barry Habib who has won the Zillow/Pulsenomics Crystal Ball Award three times in 2017, 2019 and 2020 for the accuracy of his real estate market predictions. He joins me to talk about the inner workings of the mortgage market, how inflation and the Fed's rate hikes are impacting mortgage rates, why Fed strategy failed to prevent inflation in the first place and how it’s attempting to make up for that failure, and most importantly… why we might see rates as low as 5% later this year.

He’s a Certified Mortgage Advisor himself, with more than $2 billion in originations.
