Is A Recession Bad For Real Estate?

Hey there! Jennifer Hein with Rodeo
Realty and I would like to talk about a word that scares a lot of people and has
been all over the news lately. Recession!!! And you know what? After what happened in the 2008 recession, it’s perfectly understandable why a lot of people would
be concerned about the housing market. So, I’d like to offer a little bit of
clarity in this video about what a recession is and how it relates to the
housing market. What is a recession? According to Oxford Dictionary, a
recession is a period of temporary economic decline during which trade and
industrial activity are reduced generally identified by a fall in GDP
(that’s gross domestic product) in two successive quarters. And that’s it! Notice
there’s no mention of the housing market? An economic slowdown does not
necessarily indicate a housing market crisis! In fact, only two of the last five
recessions resulted in a drop in home prices. The other three there was an
increase in prices. So, when you hear the headlines talking about a recession, and
believe me it’s going to be a hot topic until Election Day, just know that a
recession is not necessarily a bad thing for the housing market And here’s my assistant hard at work as
always. Say hello Fritz! If you liked this video, please subscribe and like below
