The Week Ahead: Headed for Housing Bubble 2.0?

housing bubbleOn Tuesday, June 26, from 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. CT, Carrington Mortgage Holdings EVP Rick Sharga will host a complimentary new State of the U.S. Housing Market Webinar that will analyze trends “and offer insights into what they mean for the housing and mortgage markets for the rest of 2018 and beyond.” Here’s the official description:

"Home prices continue to rise rapidly—48 percent over the past six years according to the National Association of Realtors. Mortgage rates have risen a full point over the last year, and wages simply aren't keeping pace. Is the housing market facing an affordability crisis? Are home prices approaching a bubble like the one that led to the Great Recession?"
