Charlotte real estate market

As a Realtor here, it is absolutely crazy. I thought it might pop when the foreclosures start hitting from job losses however I am starting to think differently. 

Right now, there is such a low inventory because the amount of rental investors buying up property. Rental prices are crazy high so why not have a producing asset. 

I mainly list homes. Sold 41 listings last year and I was shocked how many investors especially the rental investors were paying market value for homes. If that is the case then we are going to see low inventory for quite some time.

The biggest scum rental properties should be banned. They do nothing but make the poor pay higher rent.

I was in the same boat. I really thought this thing was gonna pop and I was sitting on cash waiting for it to happen. As long as inventory stays crazy low and demand is outpacing supply it ain't gonna pop.

Its not just Charlotte that prices are going crazy.  According to the company I get my homeowners insurance through, my place has risen in market value by about $70,000 just since April 2020.  

Fairly scary to me - isn't this what ultimately led to the 2007- 2008 financial crisis?

Yeah, that was a lot of bad mortgages on five year arms. Everyone knew those loans would go bad but they got packaged into bonds and sold so many times no one could even keep track of who was going to get stuck holding the bag. That crisis was completely predictable. Hell, I remember sitting in Econ 101 in the fall of '00 and having the professor break it down almost to the letter. The only thing he was off on was timing. He thought it was gonna hit in '04/'05 but it held on a few more years and the bubble only got bigger.

Yea, 2008 was due to companies giving out loans to people who could not afford monthly payments.  Rates were insane too.

Correct.

I was in the biz then as well.

Stated income loans.

Think about that for a minute.

Quote

The United States housing bubble was a real estate bubble affecting over half of the U.S. states. It was the impetus for the subprime mortgage crisis. Housing prices peaked in early 2006, started to decline in 2006 and 2007, and reached new lows in 2012.[2] On December 30, 2008, the Case–Shiller home price index reported its largest price drop in its history.[3] The credit crisis resulting from the bursting of the housing bubble is an important cause of the Great Recession in the United States.[4]

The price of homes was not the issue.  He's right,  you're wrong

I dont think so but I've been wrong before.  

Seems I remember that when the music stopped playing and millions of folks realized their mcmansion wans't actually worth what they had been led to believe or ( borrow on perceived equity ) they decided to jingle mail the keys to their lenders rather than continue paying off a dead horse.

    • We have to remember Rhule had him at Temple. He knew what he was capable of and was an absolute steal to sign him.  Reddick knows he would excel in this defense because he played in it before.  Absolute steal. I think Fitterer will figure out a way to resign him.  I think him and Burns could be an amazing duo for many years to come. I am excited to see this game tonight so much.  I hope we score quickly so we can see this amazing defense. I wanted to bring up something Burns said a couple of days ago.  He mentioned the preseason and how we dominated the first half.  We dominated, for the most part, every team we played in the preseason and it was with backups.  This doesn't include the 2nd half where we used players that aren't on the team now.  We are thin at a couple of areas on defense and the loss of anyone of the starters may make this defense less potent.  If we can stay healthy on defense it is going to be a fun season to watch, regardless of our record. 
    • I know this has probably been covered and I apologize to everyone for the clutter.   My lady friend just texted me and said why don't you come over tonight for football instead of waiting till tomorrow.  So now my slightly less big head is clouding the big head. She doesn't have NFL Network but does have a smart TV. Prime is no good right? Best free trial she should sign up for? I did a free trial last year there on my roku to watch the London Game.
