- Purchase opportunity with millennials
Millennials are 8% behind past generations in when they’re buying a home. The good news is that millions of millennials are eligible. What’s holding them back? Ishbia thinks that more education is the key, and originators have the power to effect that change on a one-on-one basis.
- Mergers, acquisitions, and consolidations
