Nope!  Artificially low rates, swinging pendulum of risk VS demand for volume creating a market based on supply & demand VS common sense & risk management........too many bad agents, too many bad LOs, it's been too easy for too long and we're about to deal w/the fallout.

Tony, In some ways yes but I have some reservations because the market went from one extreme to an entirely different extreme where most markets have experienced a shortage of available housing inventory which puts massive pressure on pricing.

Well... it took alot for us to get here. The banks have been extra hard on those getting a loan. The lack of homes for sale has kept prices up. I am keeping a balance of resales, REO and referrals to ward off evil spirits

It's funny you say that, because I'm seeing another crash coming really soon.  I think we have all the same problems we had before with lending and being over leveraged.  There is a global economic paradigm shift coming by 2020 (according to the economist I follow).  This shift will last for the better part of a decade at least and I don't see real estate being unaffected.  The shift is already starting, thanks to California's "Fight for $15", more and more companies are automating their workforce.  Hardy's (Carl Jr.'s parent company) already has automated burger making machines and McDonalds has already rolled out ordering kiosks, that by all accounts will have lines behind them when the cashier is empty!  Add to that the agricultural industry developing machines to pick berries due to the natural progression of immigrants getting educated and getting better, skilled, jobs.

Depends on your definition of stabilized... prices keep going up due to lack of inventory; first time buyers increasingly priced out of buying and paying a fortune in rent.

When did the Recession end?

In my thoughts, the Recession hasn't ended...

We still have low interest rates and inflation is still low. I believe Recession will end, when we start seeing our Interest Rates rise on our Saving / CD accounts and as well in loan products!

I would not say the market has stabilized.

shifted, yes.

Inventory is low, prices continue to rise, interest rates going up, not enough labor force to build the new homes needed, rents going up.

That does not look too stable to me.
