Bruce Norris is joined this week by Jordan Levine. Jordan is the senior economist at the California Association of Realtors, a statewide trade organization of real estate professionals with more than 190,000 members. As senior economist at CAR, Jordan analyzes housing market conditions, macro-economic trends, and public policy issues through the use of external data from the public and private sector as well as survey research studies conducted by CAR. He contributes frequently to CAR’s market analysis articles: Housing Matters Blog and Market Snapshot. He has also written various topics including housing supply, distressed sales, housing tax policy, housing affordability, and many other subjects relevant to the real estate industry.
Bruce and Jordan discuss the biggest concern right now in regards to sales, the yield curve, inventory in terms of months' supply, the hoops and fees involved with the building and permitting process, people's attitudes right now when it comes to building, the migration rate out of California, the charts he looks at to determine whether a recession is imminent, and much more on the real estate radio show and podcast.
