Real Estate - Are we headed for a bubble?

Median home prices across the nation have been increasing with gusto, though perhaps not at levels as staggering as San Jose’s median price tag of $1,183,400. In the second quarter of 2017, prices jumped by 6.2 percent compared with the same period in 2016 to an average cost of $258,300, according to the National Association of Realtors. While trends diverge profoundly from place to place — for all sorts of economic, geographical and lifestyle reasons — a good many of the nation’s metropolitan locales have experienced record appreciation. Coupled with inventory that is 9 percent lower than it was in 2016 and income that has not kept up with prices, the natural post-recession question arises.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––One decade after the biggest housing collapse in America’s history led to a global recession, could we be facing another crisis?“Not happening,” says Burns, adding that the 2007 housing crash “was based on lending practices which have since been cleaned up.”
