As professionals in the real estate market, we get asked this particular question several times each week. So we thought we would put some critical data together, share our opinion on the housing market, and answer that question. 

Question: "Are Rising Home Prices Sustainable or Will We See Another Crash?"

Here are the data points we will need to discuss to determine our best. 


Appreciation - shows the increase of the value of a property from a monthly, quarterly, and a year over year adjustment. 

Forecasts - opinions from national real estate experts if properties keep increasing, slow, or plateau out. 

Supply & Demand - shows the data related to how many buyers to sellers are present in the housing market. 

Affordability - is the measurement of a home's price to a consumer's income earned, shown in an affordability index. 

Last Crash in 2008 vs. 2022 - comparing what drove the last collapse time and how we compare now.


We've added some additional video content to help show the numbers with your situation within the housing market.

"Scott is the consummate mortgage professional. His creativity to close and duty as a fiduciary are second to none. I'm so grateful to have him in my corner now and in the future, especially with how competitive talk estate is in California! Thank you, Scott, and team!"
