As we are finding out (some for the first time), housing and the mortgages that finance it is a key economic engine.
Question: Is it important that the agent and/or loan officer you are working with have a keen understanding of fundamental market knowledge and economics? Should they show competency in basic fundamental economics and how it impacts housing?
How would you rate the importance:
1) Very important (it could make the difference in working with the agent/loan officer or not).
2) moderately important (would allow for good discussion, but it would not necessarily dissuade a working relationship).
3) somewhat important.
4) of little importance.
