A mortgage expert for almost three decades, Tom Gates, of loandepot, is the perfect guest for Episode 4.

Should you seek a fixed rate or an adjustable rate, conforming loan or jumbo, and what does it really mean, numerically, to have good or excellent credit? How does the mortgage process differ for those who are self-employed or retired, and, of course, the multi-million dollar question…where are those loan rates going in the future? These questions and many others are explored, so please listen and enjoy!
