We are dropping a special episode in your feed — the first of a four-part master class series presented by Zillow Home Loans. This series will feature experts from Zillow and across the housing industry who offer insights and strategies you can use today to best navigate today’s rapidly evolving mortgage market.
Today’s episode is a conversation between Clayton Collins and Orphe Divounguy, Ph.D., a senior economist for Zillow Home Loans and a member of Zillow’s Economic Research team. Orphe’s research focuses on housing and labor markets, and quantitative methods for policy evaluation.
Orphe and Clayton unpack the current dynamics that buyers and sellers are seeing, some of the common public misconceptions about rates, and how affordability challenges and other driving forces are impacting the average homebuyer. They also chat about creative alternatives to traditional financing — and how agents should be seeing these alternatives as an opportunity to better serve consumers.
