I don’t know where this rumor is coming from, (if I ventured a guess – probably the high pressure mechanisms that are in place wanting to force people into a buying or selling decision) – but all you have to do is google that question. The question of, “Is a market crash coming in real estate?”
Not much noted as far as recent and timely articles – But, here are a few to check out:
Problems with loans and lending http://fortune.com/2016/01/11/real-estate-bubble/ as it relates to mortgages – at least our lender, and we hope all are applying the same rules and guidelines – not everyone with a job gets to finance real estate. there are a lot of checks and balances in place and the banks do not want to lose at all!
A very techinical article by Harvard – and why would you expect less http://www.dce.harvard.edu/professional/blog/how-use-real-estate-trends-predict-next-housing-bubble This one gets into the nuts and bolts, according to Harvard about the cycle of the housing ecomony.
The street reports why another housing bubble is unlikely – video included http://www.thestreet.com/story/13358495/1/10-reasons-why-another-imminent-real-estate-crash-is-unlikely.html Here are some examples. The “what if and when” are all speculation.
Interest rates are very low. That is a fact. The buyer is vetted by a lot of “extra sources” other than the lender, when it comes to being approved for a loan. That is a fact.
The key component is that real estate is not at peak and buyers are still getting the advantage of the mortgage interest tax deduction when they file their taxes. (Benefit 1 when it comes to purchasing real estate and homes)
Home ownership is something that is also, according to Franklin D. Roosevelt, a safe bet over time, “Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.”
Do this – speak with your family, your parent if you are blessed to have them with you still, talk to your trusted real estate advisor, me or others versed in the real estate process and multiple real estate cycles – etc.
