JP Morgan has laid off over 1k mortgage bankers and are reassigning others to lower paid positions. 

People hired during the refinance boom. Obviously that boom is now over.

I’ve also read that cash out home equity loans are way up.

Hadn't heard that. That is how the danger starts.  Putting idiots underwater if a fall happens.

They are trying to get cash while home valuations are high. Then they'll have 2 loans and a house they can't sell to cover the debt. Stupid people dealing with unscrupulous people.  Never good for the rest of us.

One of my good friends does mortgages. He would sell a AR mortgage to his grandmother for the commission

Sorry, but it's about f****** time. Every idiot and their brother-in-law is a realtor these days.

 

And rents and housing prices are just insane.

The only problem is that this will only help cash buyers. Since interest rates are going up even though house prices are dropping the price of housing will remain the same or possibly be more expensive.

If the market tanks, I see the following,  Those who bought in the last 5 years will have a low payment, but will be underwater if they sell. I doubt we will see a glut of houses, So they are stuck in the house or able to rent.  Not at all like those in the 2000's who were underwater and couldn't rent.  It's actually a bit of a no lose situation for homeowners, unless they are absolutely forced to sell.  If cycles go in 15-20 year increments, then its 65 year olds who are truly screwed.  Us 55 year olds might squeak by,

I think it helps those who can't afford the down payment.  There are a lot of people who can afford the monthly payments but can't afford the down payment.

No one helped me with my down payments. And it’s not like I was making a ton of money. Living within your means and saving works.

A "housing crash imminent" thread from April 2020 might as well have been titled "I know nothing about the housing market."  Epic phayle.  :cheers:

I'm guessing that in high school you were the kid who ate bugs off of the windshield for money, and otherwise acted as the class clown, as your ways of getting attention.  :cheers:

You just said that you didn't even need to make a down payment in the other thread.

I pointed out that he always starts new threads when an existing thread is sitting there 5 down from the top of page 1, so now he thinks it is some big gotcha to me when he bumps a failed thread from 2.5 years ago about an "imminent" housing crash.  Hell, there is probably a similar thread from the 2000s, maybe we should bump that as well, it's just as relevant.  :dunno:

Home prices see biggest drop in 9 years, thanks to higher mortgage rates

It ends up being a zero sum game, but mostly hurts the seller. So the seller ends up "paying" for Bidens inflation tax

Lol, nailed it.  And comes here to say “prices are down 6%” when they’re up in total like 40% or something since the post was made.

I do think prices will come back down a bit, but doubt they’ll get lower than they were in April 2020 save maybe a few areas.

Lots of texts from those "homebuyers" agencies, lately, looking to cash in a cheap deal.
