1. Home Buying: Home Purchase Affordability Steve Campbell & Travis Maus 29:49

In this new 4-part series, we discuss buying homes in 2024 and the relationship between interest rates and home purchases. As we open the series, we tackle the daunting trifecta of taxes, home prices, and interest rates reshaping today's real estate market.

Our conversation delves deep into the cascading effects of mass migrations and state tax codes, offering you a fresh lens to view the ever-changing landscape of real estate. We peel back the layers of property taxes – a silent yet significant factor in the cost of homeownership – and discuss the strategic moves you can make to combat rising taxes and interest rates. Amidst these revelations, we don't just leave you with the challenges; we arm you with the financial literacy tools necessary to make empowered decisions, sidestepping the scarcity mindset that can cloud judgment.

Finally, prepare to time travel as we chart the history of mortgage interest rates from the eye-watering highs of the '70s to the lows of recent years. We explore how these fluctuations have shaped buyer behavior and the broader implications for the cost of homeownership, including maintenance and lifestyle adjustments. By the end of our exchange, you'll have a treasure trove of insights that we promise will elevate your understanding of the housing market and perhaps even your approach to securing your own slice of the American dream.

Steve Campbell Podcaster | Business Owner | Husband | Father to Four

Based on lessons learned during the 2008 Financial Crisis and extensive professional experience, Ditch the Suit’s was a response to the panic induced by the COVID-19 Financial Crisis, where a collision of social fear and financial volatility, fueled by the politicization of nearly every issue, seemed to tip the world upside down. With the goal to help people avoid making financially destructive decisions, co-hosts Travis Maus and Steve Campbell produced daily recordings on a wide range of topics, such as staying positive, understanding the financial impact of new legislation, how to take advantage of the stock market when it crashes, blocking out fear-mongering, etc. which eventually gave way to the creation of the Ditch the Suits Podcast.

Ditch the Suits has become more than a podcast – it’s become a movement. Travis and Steve share their experiences and industry insights in order to help you make one good financial decision after another.

Their listeners know they will hear things from us that no one else is willing to tell them!
