123: 2024 Home Service Industry Predictions Because Economists Don’t Lie With Mischa Fisher

Mischa Fisher

In this episode with Mischa Fisher, we explore essential economic insights aimed at guiding business decisions, whether you're a seasoned entrepreneur or contemplating starting a venture. Drawing lessons from the past two decades, we analyze the economic downturns of 2008 and the unique dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

Despite historical parallels in industry shifts and GDP contractions, the pandemic's economic impact showcased a distinctive pattern—rather than a sharp decline, we experienced a temporary pause followed by a noteworthy boom. Examining the current landscape, we note the influence of inflation, rising interest rates with a likely stabilization, and increased home values contributing to elevated equity, while a dip in savings rates prompts considerations for financial planning. As businesses navigate this nuanced environment, the cautious approach of homeowners towards large-scale projects becomes evident, emphasizing the importance of a clear path to life improvement in decision-making.

Tune in for a comprehensive understanding of these economic variables, empowering you to make informed and strategic business moves. Did you know our amazing voices can go beyond just the microphone? Yes, we have video! Subscribe to our YouTube channel here!
