On Wednesday, consumer credit reporting agency TransUnion will be releasing its annual Consumer Lending Forecast for 2018. The Forecast will be officially released Wednesday morning at 8 a.m. EST.
TransUnion creates its forecasts using gross domestic product, home prices, personal disposable income, unemployment rates, and other economic factors and assumptions. How will these factors change in the new year? What role will anticipated interest rate increases play on refinance activity and mortgage originations?
