... our incomes have been incredibly stagnant. In fact, we just learned that median household income did not go up at all during 2016. This is one of the reasons why we consistently see families fall out of the middle class month after month. Even if you keep the same job year after year, your standard of living is going to steadily go down unless your pay goes up.

If you will remember, we also saw a slowdown in mortgage refinancing just before the great financial crisis of 2008. For mortgage applications overall, they are now down almost 31 percent from where they were a year ago...

If this continues, it won't be too long before everyone is talking about a new housing crash.
