Something Interesting Happening In The Housing Market


Something Interesting Happening In The Housing Market

The housing market has been a wild ride since COVID hit, with remote work driving people inland for cheaper homes, though rising interest rates are making it tougher to afford. Surprisingly, despite talk of a housing bubble, foreclosures remain low, suggesting people aren't panicking just yet, despite increasing credit card debt. It's a mixed bag out there, but that's the market for you – always keeping us guessing! Today we discuss: 

  • Market expectations of rate cuts not materializing as previously predicted
  • Market prediction metrics and data gathering from betting sites
  • Concerns about economic slowdown despite higher inflation rates
  • Potential impact of economic conditions on labor market and consumer spending
  • Caution against hyperinflation fears, emphasizing gradual economic changes
  • Overview of housing market trends, including regional shifts and affordability challenges
  • Analysis of housing inventory levels and their implications for market dynamics
  • Comparison of home price changes across different regions and time periods

Today's Guest:  Kirk Chisholm

Kirk Chisholm is a Wealth Manager and Principal at Innovative Advisory Group, an independent Registered Investment Advisor located in Lexington, MA. He has been providing wealth management services to individuals, executives, entrepreneurs, and their families since 1999. He is an outside the box thinker, risk manager, inflation expert, blogger, podcaster, and all-around interesting guy. Kirk is dedicated to developing lasting relationships with all of his clients and their families. One of the benefits of working with Kirk is his patience, empathy, and his ability to provide clear and easy-to-understand explanations to complex financial topics.

Kirk developed a unique philosophy for the wealth management industry called Risk Management First. The medical field has a similar way of thinking of “first do no harm”. This philosophy focuses on risk management for clients in all aspects of their lives in ways the industry does not address. Risk management does not stop with investments. It also requires working closely with other professionals to address areas of their financial lives not currently being met.

In 2008, Kirk co-founded Innovative Advisory Group to address the needs not being addressed by the wealth management industry. It started with specializing in alternative assets held in retirement accounts (i.e. self directed IRAs/401ks). Then the company expanded into the specialization of college funding (i.e. planning, strategy, and paying the least possible for a high quality education), Risk Management First, exit planning for business owners, advanced planning (estate, tax, etc), and providing practice management and leadership training to other financial advisors, accountants and attorneys.
