It won’t fall in Charlotte.  If that’s where you plan on buying.

I’m right outside of Greensboro, in the process of selling my house right now, inspection was Thursday.  Our realtor said higher priced homes are sitting a little longer when we put it in the market.  If 8 days to go under contract is proof things are getting bad then there is that I guess 8 days is a long time before all this hit.  On the other hand the wife and I had already purchased another house before this one went under contract, why you may ask?  Well the market we are moving to prices are still steadily increasing, houses are staying on the market an average of like 30 days and selling for 98% if asking.  As someone going through it right now, I’m not seeking it at all and my two different realtors say all indications remain for a strong housing market for the foreseeable future.  Just putting this out there to caution anyone wanting to sit on cash (taxes) and hope the market crashes.  It might not happen for a while

The inflation will grow much faster than people salaries. You will see house prices skyrocket in next 2-3 years.  My neighborhood had 8 homes go on sale in May and all 8 sold in first week.

Oh for sure.  Prior to 2008 everyone was getting approve for mortgage no matter what their credit score or income was.  I worked in real estate 6 years ago and companies became much more risk averse.  I think people who sit back and waiting for 2008 to happen will be very disappointed.  Especially if you are sitting on pile of cash and we are about to hit some major inflation.  You will lose some money.

If we hit major inflation, that'll cause a housing market crash by itself. We've had ridiculously low interest rates for so long that it's caused housing prices to get to unsustainable levels without them. 

You take a $500k mortgage at today's rates and you're looking at a little over $2300 per month in principal and interest on a standard 30 year mortgage. At a 10% interest rate, that principal and interest nearly doubles to close to $4400.

My gosh... you and housing crash.  There won’t be a housing crash.  Interest rates will remain near zero for at least next 2 years.  Most companies increased minimum wages to $15-$20 in hour which will drive everyone pay up over period of few year (even high earners).  That in itself will cause inflation plus add COVID19 stimulus and you got a huge inflation waiting to happen in few years.

Okay.

I'm betting strongly otherwise. The vast majority of people are completely blind to the reality that the worst of this pandemic and it's economic effects are still ahead of us.

A potential coronavirus vaccine developed in China appeared safe and able to generate an immune response after an early trial in more than 100 people, according to a new study.

The vaccine, called Ad5-nCoV, is being developed by the Chinese company CanSino Biologics, and was one of the first coronavirus vaccines to enter early human trials back in March. Now, there are more than 100 different coronavirus vaccines in development worldwide, with at least eight of those in the process of human trials.

On Monday (May 18), biotech company Moderna announced that 45 volunteers who received doses of its vaccine candidate, called mRNA-1273, developed antibodies within 15 days, and that the  level of antibodies seen in their blood was comparable to that seen in people who have recovered from COVID-19, Live Science previously reported.

... researchers at Oxford University announced that their vaccine candidate, called ChAdOx1-nCov19, will now be tested in advanced clinical trials involving more than 10,000 people, and doses could be available as early as this September.

Yep, early vaccination trials are looking promising, but it's still likely next summer at best before we're looking at widespread availability.

I'm out in the Pacific northwest. Prices here are overinflated as is right now.

I haven’t been hearing much on inflation. Deflation is what everyone is talking about.

Everyone is just throwing mud at the wall because these are completely uncharted waters and so much depends on how the pandemic plays out. I'm betting very heavily on this playing itself out for another year with the worst still ahead of us this fall/winter. All of the optimism is betting on the worst of it already being behind us. The history of respiratory disease pandemics isn't on their side.

Nah, it won’t this time.  You need to have ~740 score to buy a house today.  The banks are being very careful.

Not true

Well, now Fauci "the genius" is saying places who can should reopen. Maybe the media (and others) can stop using him as an excuse to bash governors who are trying to get their economies going.

Dude we just got approved for a loan with less than a 740.  Certain programs, like USDA, want you to have at least 680. But you can get a loan in the low 600s

Not from the bank.  Likely from an extremely desperate mortgage company.  Many banks do not even offer HELOC right now no matter what your credit score is.
