[podcast] Rate Update and the US Rental Market

The stock market has flourished since Donald Trump was officially elected President and assumed office, but stronger economics also means higher rates. Today Joe talks about the latest improvements to interest rates, why he is encouraging buyers to have their lender to lock in current rates and why others may want to jump at this chance to refinance. What are the probabilities next week’s jobs report improves rate?

Is the thought of a “renter nation” back in play? In the second half of today’s podcast Joe refers to new reports where renters rule more than half of US cities and home ownership slowly declines. Are the dynamics of home ownership changing? What could this mean for the Bay Area and the rest of the United States?
