Five Reasons Experts Say No Housing Market Crash in 2022

It may be hard to believe, but the South Florida real estate market is quickly approaching the conclusion of its second full calendar year of record-shattering pace. Homes and condos are still selling nearly as quickly as they were at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and setting new highs along the way. 

With respect to Mr. Gordon Gekko, many real estate experts and economists—not to mention home buyers and sellers—aren’t convinced that all this greed is good. Headlines abound regarding a potential housing crash which would rival that of the late ‘00s.

South Florida's Rising Rents and Cost of Living

South Florida’s rental market has long been less-than-ideal for non-homeowners.

Moving to a new neighborhood brings with it a long list of questions. What are the neighbors like? Are there kids in the area? It is safe? What are the best places to shop?

Once you’ve made the decision to relocate, these questions and more are bound to arise. Many questions can be answered by your Realtor or your contractor, but information on others may be less forthcoming. As realtors are bound by an oath that upholds fair housing and non-discriminatory practices, there are certain questions they just cannot answer. So, issues like churches in the area or the demographics of your neighbors are simply off-limits.
