As Millennials continue to age into homeownership demand and, like prior generations, choose ownership over renting potential demand will continue to increase.  Yet, the question is where will the supply come from?  Will existing homeowners choose to sell their homes and “move up”? Is the housing stock growing sufficiently to keep pace with the growth in households looking for shelter? Will the supply shortage that we have experienced for the last two years continue and will quickly rising house prices cause an affordability crisis?  Is 2019 the year that the housing market turns and ends it’s 7-year bull run?

Vulnerabilities exist for everyone in today’s business world. While checklists, policies and fraud prevention technologies are invaluable, they do not account for the human factor. Following policies and procedures, and completing checklists isn’t enough. Justifying behavior is a product of ethical complacency and indecision. These actions can lead to a lack of trust in an industry, a tarnished reputation of a company and the complete psychological collapse and loss of freedom of good people.  Jerome’s gripping story will help you identify your vulnerabilities. You'll take away the true consequences of committing fraud.  You’ll learn the lessons you need to make the best decisions in impossible situations and save everything you’ve worked for.
