In the evolving digital landscape, the term “artificial intelligence” (AI) is no longer an alien concept. What’s more intriguing is the advent of generative AI that’s poised to revolutionize various business sectors. However, the inevitable question arises: Will the rise of generative AI pose a threat to the job market? As a futurist and Anticipatory Thinker, I propose that generative AI will not eliminate jobs but instead transform the nature of human work and create new roles that offer significant advantages for businesses in all industries! In turn, this will lead to logical anticipatory action and launch organizations into the future in proactive ways.
Generative AI and How It Triggers Our Fears Before even the most Anticipatory Leader reads the aforementioned declaration and tries to leverage generative AI to their organization’s advantage, let’s first take a step back here and define what generative AI is exactly. In essence, generative AI represents a…

The bond market has been all over the place, and we have seen rapid movement in both directions in the past few weeks. We also have many originators that are struggling to produce loans and they are promising (and hoping) rates and fees that currently don’t exist to attract business. While this is nothing new for the industry, those that are desperate are taking this to a whole new level and don’t really care who they hurt in the process. It’s a shame, but people will be hurt and to be honest, little to nothing will be done about it other than maybe a tirade on social media about a loan officer that promised one thing and couldn’t deliver.  The issue is real and sometimes, it may cost people more than just money. It may cost them their chance at home ownership, possibly forever! Think about it, a borderline customer…

New listings have hit their lowest level of any early June on record, limiting home sales and keeping prices afloat New listings of homes for sale fell 25% year over year to their lowest level of any early June on record. That’s according to a new report from Redfin (www.redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage, which analyzed new listings of homes for sale during the four weeks ending June 4. The continued lack of new listings has pushed the total number of homes on the market down 5% year over year to its lowest level on record for early June. Elevated mortgage rates are driving the inventory shortage, with the daily average hitting 6.94% on June 7, near its highest level in two decades. The vast majority of homeowners have a mortgage rate below 6%, discouraging them from listing their home and giving up their relatively low rate.

It’s June and the summer season is here and it’s going to be a wild one! Rate volatility last week, steadily lower, has given way to some price improvement. Not enough to make up for recent losses, but the unemployment numbers today and the jobs report on Friday will contribute to either further improvement or a reversal if the numbers are significantly stronger than expectations. We also do not yet have a signed bill increasing the debt limit yet, but there is hope that something will pass and be signed soon. Despite lower numbers from the MBA, my clients are seeing pretty solid activity with inventory being a factor at some price points. Obviously, each market is different, but I have a solid cross-section of markets covered and there is no slowing down the number of preapprovals being requested, and offers being made. Referrals from small banks and credit unions…
