Will The Housing Market Crash in 2023? 

The housing market is heading into waters not charted in decades. We haven’t dealt with high inflation, rising interest rates, low supply, and rapidly increasing home prices in a long time.

Looking back at the 2008 housing bubble, the issues resulting in the recession seem obvious today in hindsight. However, at the moment, almost nobody saw the housing market crash coming.

The housing market today is different from 2008. Many will say the differences mean there will not be another housing market crash.

Will the Housing Market Crash?

Interest Rates

Rising interest rates don’t mean that the housing market will crash. If anything, the housing market may return to a more normal state.

Today, lending standards are much tighter than in 2008. As a result, the percentage of subprime mortgage originations has decreased significantly.

Tighter Lending Standards

Millennials have reached peak home-buying age as we are still digging out of supply shortages from the 2008 crash.

High Demand and Low Inventory

High Inflation

It’s tough to understand how inflation may impact house prices. However, one thing is almost inevitable, rising interest rates will limit price increases.

The 2008 market was propped up by bad loans when inventory was far outpacing the need for housing. However, there are a few wildcards at play that are unknown that could result in a crash.
