WSJ Reporter Kris Hudson Talks About The Labor Shortage & Housing PLUS Hear Joe’s State Of The Market

Just because the year 2015 is winding down…does not mean that the world of anything & everything real estate® is too! It’s quite the opposite actually, as we face continued historic low rates, guide buyers through tight inventory, adapt to the new loan disclosures released October 3rd and make the most of housing equity gains this year.

If you are looking for an end to low inventory, you are not alone. Wondering why new construction isn’t a quick & easy answer…after all, it would seem to add more jobs & more homes, right? Not exactly. At the top of the hour, Wall Street Journal Staff Reporter Kris Hudson will call in and share some data from his latest article on why there is a labor shortage, how it is impacting builders and where it hurts consumers (generally in the pocketbook!). Kris will also present some big picture perspective as to how the current construction labor shortage compares to past periods of economic recovery. Later in the hour, Host Joe Cucchiara will give his own state of the market, while sharing the current opportunities for homeowners and changes they may see because of the new disclosure process.
