Ten years ago, we were in the beginning of one of the greatest recession in the United States.  Many predicted it would happen but most were just enjoying all the fruits the bubble offered.  The bubble bursed after the economy couldn't take any more bad loans being defaulted on.  During the many years after the recession, thankfully the market was able to recover and correct some of the mistakes in made prior to 2008.  However,  some say we are headed in the same direction.  

The image above demonstrates the last 18 years of the housing market and the trends.  As you can in 2006. home prices were up and mortgage delinquencies were down when the market began taking a turn for the work.  By 2008,  home prices began to drop while mortgage delinquency rates were on the rise.   If you fast forward to today, you can see we are at the height of the market while delinquency rates are still low.  It is believed within the next couple of years, the market will take a turn for the worse.
