Not a Crash: 3 Graphs That Show How Today’s Inventory Differs from 2008

Even if you didn't own a home at the time, you probably remember the housing crisis in 2008. That crash impacted the lives of countless people, and many now live with the worry that something like that could happen again. But rest easy, because things are different than they were back then. As Business Insider says:
“Though many Americans believe the housing market is at risk of crashing, the economists who study housing market conditions overwhelmingly do not expect a crash in 2024 or beyond.”

If you still need to move and want to get it back on the market, here are some things to consider as you look back.
Was It Priced for Today’s Market?
Setting the right price from the start is key. While it might be tempting to try shooting high with your price, that can slow down the selling process big time.

It also means you won’t have to worry about finding somewhere to stay when you go there.
