For some background on the interview with Devalla, here’s a snippet of the article:
The 2020 economy is full of curious contrasts. Millions of Americans sought COVID mortgage relief like forbearances while millions more capitalized on refis and flocked to suburbs to buy new or bigger homes at record low rates. And COVID lockdowns led to the worst Q2 and best Q3 GDP quarters in U.S. history. This is also why housing policies were extremely accommodating in Q2 but relatively quiet in Q3. Such is the absurd new normal in this pandemic economy. Now lenders face a K-shaped economic recovery and two key housing relief policies expiring soon.
