Recessions and Housing Prices - June 12, 2008
Are we in a Recession??? Technically no, but a lot of people feel like they are. With gas prices up and housing prices down, psychologically people feel poorer. So this tends to create a slow down in consumer spending. Mortgages Made Simple logo A full blown recession does not appear likely, but a commentator I like to read, John Mauldin, prefers to call it a "muddle through economy." By this he means we will meander our way through a period of no meaningful growth in the economy. This isn't good by any means, but not the doom and gloom some people are predicting. And in an election year, a recession would be devastating for the Republican party.

We also discuss how a recession affects housing prices and give you some buy versus rent examples. Then we give you a few more ideas on buying a home today.
