It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly 10 years since the housing market took a turn for the worse. At the time it seemed chaotic, but it’s now clear what happened. The market was correcting and as a result, we saw a sharp downturn in home prices between 2007 and 2011. Things improved slowly over the next few years until recently, when prices starting rising much more rapidly. That has caused many buyers and sellers to assume that we must be heading toward another housing bubble.
