The Counselor’s Corner – Housing Affordability HUD Exam
August 21, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
In the current economic environment, mortgage interest rates are still below 4% but they are beginning to rise as the Federal Reserve raises the fed funds rate. Mortgage application volumes were up and down all year in 2017. The housing market is still tight as inventories are low and prices are high, which puts affordability out of reach. Demand for rentals is still high, driving up rent cost. On the other hand, the job market is improving and credit is easing. How can a consumer make a good decision on which is more affordable…owning or renting? Today’s housing counselors must keep abreast of the market and the tools, resources, and training necessary to educate clients about housing affordability.
This class provides a basic refresher on the content needed to build and/or maintain your competency level in this topic to help you with the HUD certification exam.
