A Thief in The Night

A Thief in The Night

A Thief in The Night ...


Well some may be wondering when the next Real Estate crash will take place and then some don't even care.

But for anyone in the Real Estate Market it's important to hopefully have some type of idea when a crash is coming.

Problem is the last crash around 2007-2008 came like "A Thief in The Night"

In fact so many Real Estate Brokers & Agents had no idea when it hit, and several cities and states where hit harder than others.

So without a crystal ball I am thinking around 2020 there may be some indications of something coming around the corner.

So for anyone reading this post I would be very careful and please try not to go out and purchase 2-3-4 homes in the near future.

Since the "bubble" years (2004-5) and the "crash" afterwards(2007), we've had a few dips, but overall the market seems to be quickly recovering and moving up. There was a slight dip after the First-time Home Buyer Credit was discontinued (2010). And in 2013-4 after the Canadian owners sold their homes. It will be interesting when the next dip will come.

Robert, are spot on.  It appears the Real Estate Market is heading in that direction.  I have some investors who are getting jittery about 2020.

Many of my clients are predicting a radical drop in house values in 2020 also. This may be the quiet before the storm.

Good morning Robert Vegas Bob Swetz ,

It's always wise to be aware of change and as Barbara Todaro said it is inevitable. Learning to adapt to all markets is the key...people will always need to buy and sell sometimes its a seller's market and sometimes a buyers....they will buy and sell in both.

I'm with Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR - you need to be mindful and aware. I think the market needs a correction, hoping it's not a crash, but more of a gentle downward trend in pricing and an increase in supply.

Hi Robert Vegas Bob Swetz - I watch certain industries have been able to have a pretty decent handle on the economy. I don't see any signs right now. People who over-leverage are going to be in trouble at some point. I call it the "greed-factor".

As long as there are enough money throwing into technology there will be plenty of jobs. 6 smart cell phone companies are here. Social media, chips and smart texi. Did I say there are several electric car and solar truck companies? Can not find enough workers. 

Love to see the free ways are not constipated like LA.... Just can't wait.

For a year or more before the last crash I was reading Michael Masterson's Early to Rise messages every morning. He was advising people to dump their investment properties immediately. He was watching the bubble grow and knew it would burst.

Hello Bob - I like your interesting post title and it certainly can lead to more conversations.  Maybe even an answer.

We certainly were caught off guard by the 2008 meltdown.  I think the thing that is different now from then, was we don't have the proliferation of the liar loans with quickly escallating mortgage payments after the first year.  There also seems to be much more cash in the sales, so folks have skin in the game.  I could be wrong, but other than quickly escallating home prices that seem to have formed a bubble in some parts of the country, I don't see other signs that give me concern. . .BUT, again, I have no crystal ball.

Important to keep an eye on the ever changing market VB. 2020 is only 4 months away and there is no recession in sight, yet.
