The Housing Market Crash Has Already Happened

The housing market crash has been a subject of speculation, with concerns about a potential bubble and its subsequent burst, both across the US and Huntsville, Alabama. However, the crash has already occurred, although not in the way most people expect. We look into the causes of the crash, propose solutions, and explore the potential ramifications if we fail to act promptly.

Housing Affordability Continues to Decrease

Affordability has taken a major hit. With 2008 in the back of everybody's minds, it's only natural to ask, "Are we in a real estate bubble, and is it going to pop?" We've had a massive hit on affordability due to price increases, which is a reflection of massive inflation, monetary…

Average Length of Homeownership



Curious about how long homeowners are staying in their homes? Recent stats shed light on the average length of homeownership and its changing trends. Examining a 20-year period from 1985 to 2005, there was minimal variation in home stay duration. On average, homeowners remained in the same house for five years in 1985, gradually increasing to six years by 2005. However, in a surprising twist, the average length of a homeowners' stay has more than doubled in less than two decades, with homeowners now residing in their homes for over 13 years. Let's take a look at what the future may be for a homeowners' length of stay and discuss the factors driving this trend.

2023 Housing Predictions Revisited

You've seen my 2023 Huntsville, Alabama real estate predictions, now that we’re halfway through the year let's see how those predictions are faring.

1. Have Interest Rates Peaked?

I was really on the fence if interest rates had peaked and what interest rates might do in this market in 2023. I predicted that interest rates had peaked and that they would start to come down in 2023. I'm going to stick with that prediction.

Interest rates seem to have peaked in the low 7% range and they have come down slightly from that. With the Fed signaling that they may pause rates and a lot of fear and uncertainty being priced into the mortgage rates, it looks like that prediction could come true with interest rates…
