Is housing news good news or bad news?

The premier event for luxury agents and brokers
Luxury Connect | Oct. 16-18 | Beverly Hills

Trying to make sense of economic news and its effects on mortgages and home buyers and sellers feels more like a game of Chutes And Ladders than rational analysis. Heaven knows the Fed itself is confused. Interest rates fall on bad economic news because a slow economy does not generate inflation. But for low rates to be good news for housing, people need to have jobs and rising incomes.
