Who Is to Blame for Unaffordable Housing

Markets rallied into Apple's iPhone reveal, then sold off yesterday; who can afford an iPhone 15? CPI for August to be released this morning (3.7% vs anticipated 3.6%). Lenders are now rolling out a 1% down payment program in hopes of reviving their business. The thing about home ownership: It's always something. How do mortgage lenders do it? They eat part of the rate up front, but YOU will pay for it on the back end. What does a larger (20%) down payment say about financial ability? The cost of home ownership goes beyond being able to afford a mortgage payment; home prices are a function of supply & demand. No one wants to sell into a housing market with 7% mortgage rates. The tricks home builders use; How "good" do Baby Boomers have it (and why)? Time to invest, bull markets; thought processes about money, managing expenses. What is an IPOP all about: It's NOT selling at a discount. (Fiscal responsibility doesn't sell products) What do 20% of Gen-Z's want to be? Social Media influencers. Switching from spending to saving mode.
