Testimonials

– KB, Canto

“Deb is incredibly knowledgeable of the market.”

“Deb is incredibly knowledgeable of the market. Her experience and organization put us at ease during the entire process. Her exceptional integrity and skill were on full display throughout the negotiation. I definitely appreciated the detailed verification and recommendation of all offers made. Her team is also a reflection of the high standards she sets for herself and others. I highly recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell, especially in this volatile market.”

– JB, South Lyon

“They are honest, hard working and their follow through is second-to-none.”


“We first used the Ronayne Team in 2005 and have used them for every real estate transaction since. Lou and Deb know the local real estate market well. They are honest, hard working and their follow through is second-to-none. Listing our home was like being on auto pilot. The Ronayne team knows exactly what to do and exactly when to do it. They remained in constant communication and made a complex process easy for us. Multiple offers “above listing price” after one weekend on the market was an added bonus, too! If you are looking to buy/sell a home, the Ronayne Team is a wise choice. I highly recommend them.”

– AP, Northville, MI

“They set realistic expectations and continue to exceed them time and time again”


“Deb is incredibly knowledgeable in all aspects of a real estate transaction and knows the value of her markets very well. She and the Ronayne Team are extremely responsive, reliable, honest, and trustworthy. They set realistic expectations and continue to exceed them time and time again. It has been a pleasure working with Deb on the buying and selling side of transactions and look forward to working with her for years to come. Highly recommend Deb and the Ronayne Team for any future real estate needs.”

Two Reasons Why Today’s Housing Market Isn’t a Bubble

October 30, 20233 min read

You may be reading headlines and hearing talk about a potential housing bubble or a crash, but it’s important to understand that the data and expert opinions tell a different story. A recent survey from Pulsenomics asked over one hundred housing market experts and real estate economists if they believe the housing market is in a bubble. The results indicate most experts don’t think that’s the case (see graph below):

Graph

As the graph shows, a strong majority (60%) said the real estate market is not currently in a bubble. In the same survey, experts give the following reasons why this isn’t like 2008:

  • The recent growth in home prices is because of demographics and low inventory

  • Credit risks are low because underwriting and lending standards are sound

If you’re concerned a crash may be coming, here’s a deep dive into those two key factors that should help ease your concerns.

1. Low Housing Inventory Is Causing Home Prices To Rise

The supply of homes available for sale needed to sustain a normal real estate market is approximately six months. Anything more than that is an overabundance and will causes prices to depreciate. Anything less than that is a shortage and will lead to continued price appreciation.

As the graph below shows, there were too many homes for sale from 2007 to 2010 (many of which were short sales and foreclosures), and that caused prices to tumble. Today, there’s still a shortage of inventory, which is causing ongoing home price appreciation (see graph below):

Graph2

Inventory is nothing like the last time. Prices are rising because there’s a healthy demand for homeownership at the same time there’s a limited supply of homes for sale. Odeta Kushi, Deputy Chief Economist at First American, explains:

“The fundamentals driving house price growth in the U.S. remain intact. . . . The demand for homes continues to exceed the supply of homes for sale, which is keeping house price growth high.”

2. Mortgage Lending Standards Today Are Nothing Like the Last Time

During the housing bubble, it was much easier to get a mortgage than it is today. Here’s a graph showing the mortgage volume issued to purchasers with a credit score less than 620 during the housing boom, and the subsequent volume in the years after:

Graph

This graph helps show one element of why mortgage standards are nothing like they were the last time. Purchasers who acquired a mortgage over the last decade are much more qualified than they were in the years leading up to the crash. Realtor.com notes:

“. . . Lenders are giving mortgages only to the most qualified borrowers. These buyers are less likely to wind up in foreclosure.”

Bottom Line

A majority of experts agree we’re not in a housing bubble. That’s because home price growth is backed by strong housing market fundamentals and lending standards are much tighter today. If you have questions, let’s connect to discuss why today’s housing market is nothing like 2008.
