A Possible Housing Meltdown? These Experts Respectfully Disagree






We want to let you know that “rumors of a new market meltdown” are not based on any reputable data. As proof, we offer you the comments of the following experts who have a totally different view on the current housing market.


Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at NAR:



“In spite of deficient supply levels, stock market volatility and the paltry economic growth seen so far this year, the housing market did show resilience and had its best first quarter of existing-sales since 2007.”



Jonathan Smoke, Chief Economist at realtor.com:



“We had a triple crown of April home sales reports, so 2016 is in the pole position to earn best year of home sales in a decade.”



Andrea Riquier, MarketWatch housing reporter:



“I'm calling the end of the housing “recovery.” On to ‘expansion.’”



Freddie Mac:



“Despite the disappointing economic reports, we still forecast housing to maintain its momentum in 2016.”



Steven Russolillo, Wall Street Journal housing reporter:



“A recent gauge of home builder sentiment held firmly in positive territory, according to the National Association of Home Builders. Perhaps more important, expectations for sales in the next six months jumped to the highest level of the year.”



Fannie Mae:



“Our latest housing tracker shows that the first quarter of 2016 was the second fastest first quarter pace of home sales in the past decade... Home sales typically rise in the spring and summer months, and we anticipate an acceleration in home sales that will surpass 2007's pace by late summer.”
