Jason Hartman starts today's show with some final notes about Meet the Masters, which starts on Friday. There's some things you need to know in regards to availability after the event, social media opportunities at the event, and a special something being done with the Creating Wealth podcast at the event.
Then Jason talks with Barry Habib, renowned mortgage industry executive and founder of MBS Highway, about what to expect in the mortgage world in 2018. The two discuss why the media doesn't seem to get real estate, why real estate appreciation doesn't have to match stock market appreciation, mortgage tax deductions, and how the Roe v Wade decision actually impacted a housing bubble.
