Housing Market Questions

Will a Recession Cause a Housing Crash like 2008?

With all the volatility in the stock market and uncertainty about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), some are concerned we may be headed for another housing crash like the one we experienced from 2006-2008.

And it makes sense that buyers and sellers remember the horrors of 2008 when they hear the word “recession.”

Most experts, however, believe if there is a recession, it will not resemble 2008. This housing market is in no way the same as it was just over a decade ago.

How Has the Housing Market Been Impacted by Previous Stock Market Corrections?

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused massive global uncertainty, including a U.S. stock market correction no one could have seen coming.

While many are wondering if this is a situation like 2008, David Rosenberg Chief Economist for Gluskin Sheff & Associates sees a more accurate comparison:

“What 9/11 has in common with what is happening today is that this shock has also generated fear and anxiety among the general public. People avoided crowds as they believed another terrorist attack was coming and are acting the same today to avoid getting sick. The same parts of the economy are under pressure – airlines, leisure, hospitality, restaurants, entertainment – consumer discretionary services in general.”

When you compare the stock market correction of that time period to how the housing market performed, home prices were not negatively impacted. In fact, they appreciated considerably that period of S&P downturn.

Will We See a Rise in the Number of Foreclosures?

With all of the havoc being caused by COVID-19, many are concerned we may see a new wave of foreclosures. Restaurants, airlines, hotels, and many other industries are furloughing workers or dramatically cutting their hours. Without a job, many homeowners are wondering how they’ll be able to afford their mortgage payments.

In spite of this, there are actually many reasons we won’t see a surge in the number of foreclosures like we did during the housing crash over ten years ago.

Read the blog post, Are We About to See a New Wave of Foreclosures?, to see just a few of those reasons and then share it with your clients.
