Housing: The market forecast, renovating and taxes

Season 1 Episode 24

For more than a year it’s been a crazy seller’s market. But now interest rates are rising, and we are starting to hear murmurings of the potential “heat of the market” cooling just a bit. Or maybe it’s not. In this episode of Everyday Wealth™, Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, joins Jean and Soledad to discuss the housing market forecast and what buyers and sellers should consider. Later in the episode, Brian Leslie, a wealth planner from Edelman Financial Engines, joins the show to discuss home improvements and renovations and potential tax deductions.
