In our Hot Topic this week we have Les Parker, founder of the TMSpotlight Newsletter & Managing Director at Transformational Mortgage Solutions to discuss the mortgage rate outlook….
So many people comment, they go, how does Les come up with his music parodies? And I said the most amazing part is he’s not into pulp culture, he’s not into any of this. I have no idea, but he does, do a masterful job of tying a song, and creating a music parody as he does each week on here. But today we want to talk about interest rates. So we’re really, really excited about that!
