A Recession Doesn’t Equal a Housing Crisis

While a recession can certainly have an impact on the housing market, a recession does not necessarily equal a housing crisis.

During a recession, there may be a decrease in demand for housing as people become more cautious with their spending and may delay making big purchases like a home. However, this is not always the case. Depending on the severity of the recession, there may still be strong demand for housing, especially in certain markets or regions where job growth and other economic indicators remain strong.

It's also worth noting that a recession does not always result in a decline in home prices. In fact, during the last recession in 2008, while home prices did decline in many areas, they actually increased in some markets. This was largely due to factors like low interest rates, a shortage of homes for sale, and an increase in demand from investors.
