This week, Ben Lane, the newly appointed managing editor of HousingWire’s editorial team, discusses his experiences in covering the housing economy for the last five and a half years. Additionally, Lane touches base on the massive mortgage partnership between State Farm and Quicken Loans, and Fannie Mae’s recently updated mortgage forecast.
