Mortgage interest rates hit all-time lows three months ago. Freddie Mac has tracked rates since 1971.
The 30-year fixed rate mortgage debuted in America in 1948. It’s an incredible tool that few, if any, other world nations have.
Before this, it took a 50% down payment and refinancing every 3-5 years.
Mortgage rates have been falling for 700 years! From the year 1311, we look at interest rate history in the French Crown, Spanish Crown, Italian merchants in Milan, Genoa.
The latest marker of today’s low housing supply is the fact that there are currently more real estate agents than available homes.
Is rush hour traffic a thing of the past? We explore this.
Caeli Ridge helps us understand the ominous new 7% Fannie Mae funding limit on single-family mortgages on second homes and investment properties. Result = higher loan prices.
Does it make sense to pay discount points at the closing table? Discount points are like prepaid interest. We explore pros and cons.

If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
