Should I Buy, Sell, or Rent in a Crisis Economy – with Lizy Hoeffer


We are going to talk about everything housing with Lizy Hoeffer, the #1 loan officer in America. We are facing one of the craziest economies any of us have ever experienced and we don’t know the truth of how it will unfold, but Lizy is the expert when it comes to all things housing and investing. So, if anyone knows how you should act during these times, it’s her. We discuss how we view ownership as an investment when you should buy a home, and when it makes sense — and we don’t always agree! You’ll get both of our perspectives, and it’s your job to come to your own conclusion.

Question Highlights:

  • How do polar opposite takes exist at the same time when it comes to predicting the market?
  • Where do you stand on buying a home as an investment?
  • What do you think we’re facing as an upcoming economy?
  • How is unemployment going to affect housing?
  • What should the average homeowner be thinking about right now?
  • Could you explain the difference between a forbearance and a deferral?
  • Should people be scrambling to refinance their homes?
  • Who should be considering investment properties?
  • What is the overall picture of the average person in the US financially?
  • Who are you passionate about supporting right now?
