Realtor.com notes that Germany is already teetering on the brink of recession and the U.K. is facing unrest related to “Brexit”, while in the U.S., a rapidly escalating trade war with China is increasing fears. However, despite these risks, real estate should be safe, unlike in 2008.”This is going to be a much shorter recession than the last one,” predicts George Ratiu, Senior Economist with realtor.com. “I don’t think the next recession will be a repeat of 2008. The housing market is in a better position.”“There’s real reason we could talk ourselves into a recession,” Bearden notes. He goes on to state that an upcoming recession may be little more than a debt, not a serious recession like in 2008. Share Save Are We Talking Ourselves Into a Recession?
