Default Stock Market Effect Real Estate Market?

Any thoughts on the impact of the big losses in the stock market over the last week will have (if any) on the hot real estate market?

None. This is a correction and if the fed doesn't touch rates don't expect much movement in the real estate market.

Let's start with this:

Why do you think there would be an impact?

I don't see much of an impact. Mainly because this type of issue could possibly delay the FED from raising interest rates. Where it could make an impact is for the individuals who utilize investment profit as their down payment.

Yeah, like me! I'm not ready to buy anyway so hopefully the market recovers somewhat in 12-18 months.

I guess I was looking at it having more of a direct impact at the higher end of the market; people that just lost a lot of their savings and had a good scare might behave differently when deciding on a luxury home. In addition, the market is fueled by a lot of people moving to denver for lifestyle reasons and that's harder for some people to do during times where there is a lot of fear about the market and the economy.

Of course it could be argued that market fear has the opposite effect where people are looking for somewhere else to put their money rather than the stock market and are more likely to put a higher percentage of their assets into real estate.

That all said, the equities market is surging right now, so maybe this will all be moot. But who knows...the volatility of the last few days has been crazy.

Default Good news - ort maybe not bad news

With unresolved tension still brewing between buy-and-hold homeowners, the ongoing inventory issues, and the continued influx of newcomers to the area, much work remains. Hopefully these positive signs will keep pointing upward.
