Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman

Is an imminent housing market crash reality or fiction? Jason Hartman invites apartment syndicator Kyle Kovats to the show today to talk about where the housing market was in times of crisis and where it is going now. He presents housing, mortgage and demographic data that paint a very different picture from what many doom and gloomers are saying.

There is so much media sensationalism around the current housing market and lots of people predicting that it’s going to come crashing down just like it did in 2008-09, but few people are looking at the real data and making informed predictions based on the real numbers. 

Leading up to the 2008 financial crisis, there were three things happening: we were overbuilt, there were funny money loans, and demographics were vastly different. None of that remains true right now! We have very different market conditions and Kyle makes the case that a crash is highly unlikely.
