Will the housing market crash? If you’re like most Americans, the economy is starting to feel a bit unsettling. But, with so many homeowners locked into low mortgage rates or owning their homes outright, is there even a possibility of a housing crash, regardless of whether a recession does happen? The answer isn’t as straightforward as most people think, and if you don’t know the facts, you could get caught off guard.
Mindy and Scott are back to answer YOUR money questions. This time, we’re taking questions from our Facebook Group, and MANY have to do with mortgage rates, home sales, and a potential crash. First, we answer what could cause a housing market crash in the near future. Then, a listener asks whether or not they should sell their home to pay off credit card debt. An investor wants to know if paying off their mortgage early beats the stock market, and a divorcee seeks to sell her home because of “bad juju.” The problem? She’s got a killer mortgage rate. Finally, we’ll debate stocks vs. real estate as the best path to FIRE!
