Economy is recovering sort of sex is going to be good. And may be there right maybe interest rates going up what effect that's what's going to basements while percentage point. It may be -- speaks few people but it should be fine but. But she -- get hit and enact this in you can -- -- -- as -- yeah -- its -- thing. Depending talking about part series -- mortgages and a space that it hasn't hit as much as people soul. Blanche because a lot of mortgages were being revenue and dozens of months to get and you move again -- takes a team. Think it was hello all strong -- -- rates were released.
