On whether rising interest rates will discourage people from buying homes:

“I’m conflicted because I know there has been a lot of momentum in home prices. They go the same way for years and years and in some sense it’s almost obvious – in one mood of thought I can think it’s obvious, buy a home now, flip it in a year or two and very likely to make a profit just based on historical behavior of home prices, but then again I think, but this isn’t the same situation as in the past. We have a lot more professional investors. We have a lot more potential flippers in the market and we have various clouds on the horizon, so I’m not so sure anymore. I wish I could be sure about these things.”
