The Market is Different than it was in 2008 & here's WHY

A couple of points & differences between the 2008 market crash & what is currently happening in the real estate market.

LOTS OF DIFFERENCES.

People have much more equity & are on time with their mortgage payments than ever before. Interest rates are low which always spurs on the overall economy. Remember how many different services are connected to one house sale. People need lots of new stuff from blinds to carpeting & the economy benefits from all that & more.

Our inventory level in the Schaumburg Area is 55% below what it was last year in February. People who are selling their homes can expect good sales prices but definitely some inconveniences that we've never had to deal with before. Still, people are looking at homes every day. 

If you have any questions over these numbers or have questions on how your own home is doing at the moment, please feel free to give me a call so we can discuss your concerns.

Excellent points, Lyn.  Many are trying to draw parallels w/ 2008 and 2001, but there are so many differences.

Well written But I have to disagree with #1 all the no doc, easy doc, non QM, NINA loans were back in the past 24 months. They have now evaporated which mirrors 2006 until March 2007. And they were getting cash out to buy a boat, RV, rental

I think this is helpful information to share with our clients - the market is different and this is a different type of crisis.

 The epidemic extant in 2008 was the epidemic of GREED. That overruled common sense and allowed weak willed people to do many bad things.

What's the % of new listings on the market for the past 14 days compared to the last two weeks of February?

Our inventory is low, but we've not gotten a lot of listings these past two weeks because seller don't want people in their houses.  

I do agree with this NOT being anything like 2008. But I do think real estate will ultimately be impacted greatly.
