Housing bubble 2.0? Regional housing markets are beginning to look like they did in 2007

Recommended Posts

We've seen it all before.  Record low interest rates and easy money send home prices through the roof.  Then interest rates skyrocket, and prices come down.  Nothing new.

What I have noticed is that often the price of firewood predicts the housing crashes....just an observation.

Once it dries up, the west coast of florida will have all the free firewood you need.

Yeah, you should not burn that stuff   :lol:

It's pretty true that a drop in price means they are cutting and clearing lots, a rise means they have stopped....and about six months later you can see the market starting to react.

I rent an apartment. It's awesome. Putting all that money towards retirement investments instead of buying and selling houses is killing it for me. 

How much is your rent ?

$1700 total per month for the two of us. It's less than the property taxes alone for homes around us.

You know what? I'm kind of sick of hearing about this so-called housing bubble. There was a time not too long ago when there were more f****** Realtors than they were houses. And housing prices are just absolutely insane. Hell, investment firms are buying up homes and even damn trailer parks.

 

It's not a bubble. It's a correction. And it's a much needed correction. It's f****** unsustainable. I remember laughing at the Japs in the '80s because they had multi-generational mortgages.

Japan started their move towards 0% interest rates back in the early 90s.

Interesting to note that the Nikkei average (the equivalent of our Dow Jones industrial average) peaked at 38,000 around that same time.

32 years later it's @ 27,000

That would be annual property tax of $20,000 or more.  What evaluated house value equals that much property tax?  And what state are you in?

I pay $1700 in RE taxes every quarter for 2 properties.

Just read something like 15 minutes ago. Tyreek Hill picked Florida to play because no state income tax. Said he chose Dolphins over Jets to save 3 million. or whatever it was. Smart man

Yeah. You’re going to see a lot of that now considering how high the salaries are. There was a time you could make up the difference with endorsements. No way Hill was getting close to 3m in endorsements in NY.

I think it is officially NJ, but the point is the same and less of a chance

Yes. The property taxes around me are around $22,000 to $30,000 or so.

Generally in the small city I live in and next door to me where I live the homes that are up for sale are anywhere from $650.000 to $4+M all within about 1-2 miles in each direction. If you find anything in the $500,000 dollar range it needs serious work or is tiny on a bad lot. In some of the not so great areas a few miles away that I would never move to I don't know their values.

New Jersey.

Hopefully they didn’t take your advice to not buy between about April-December 2020 though

The house/apartment/mobile home that you live in. I see it often where people try to compare the rent they pay for a 2 bedroom apartment to what it would cost to buy a 4 bedroom house.

It's not a condo. I rent an apartment. And I'm not a realtor. Why do you focking care?

Because you’re not making a fair comparison by comparing your rent for an apartment to what it costs to buy a house.

Ok. I don't care about your opinion on something you know nothing about.

I don't know what else to tell your obsession.

Simply pointing out that it’s not really relevant to compare the cost of renting an apartment to the cost of buying a house.  If you were to compare to the cost of buying a similar sized condo, that might make some sense.  That is all.

The average property tax in New Jersey is 8400. So craftsman says he lives in an area that is paying 22000-30000 in property taxes.

I mean- not likely
