It’s spring. That means it might be a good time to sell your house. The question to ask first is whether there is a housing bubble. There seems to be a frequent search on Google asking if there is a real estate bubble. It seems that there is semi-consensus that there isn’t a housing bubble currently. This is mainly because home prices are unlikely to fall significantly, and might even rise a bit slowly at a rate that outpaces inflation.
What is also good is that lending standards are high, in part as a result of what happened in 2007. Banks don’t want to make the same mistakes again, and fraudulent lending is a thing of the past.
That is really good news for those who have a great credit score. The other piece of good news is that adjustable rate mortgages are less popular now, which means there is a better chance that the mortgages being approved are approved to people who will have equity in their homes rather than what happened in 2007 where mortgage lenders were allowing mortgages that amounted to no equity because the terms were so unrestrictive it was all too easy to buy multiple houses. This caused the loan to then be worth more than the house, and we then had a huge problem arise.
