Have been seeing all the inflation going on and rates of everything are rising to abnormal. Is it a good time to buy a house?. Have been seeing predictions and saw that crash is expected dec 2023. Any suggestions?

There is always someone saying a crash 1 year away if you pay attention to the financial pundits on CNN money, Bloomberg, etc.


Buy after crash 2023


The housing market is frothy and has been for a few years now. I am reluctant to buy as well. The challenge is wondering if the prices will stick or crash. People wondered the same thing before the last crash in 07 - 09.

If you need a house, buy for the long-term and ride it. If you don’t, amass some savings and try to buy with a larger down payment or outright cash *when* housing prices come down.


Prices are too high but mortgage rates are still great. Tough call. I’d wait a while.


If you plan to stay in your house for a long time I think it’s a good time to buy.

I think also one thing to consider is where you live. If you live in Texas or any other state where there is a huge spike in out of state residents moving in, there is less likely of a "crash" to occur. In fact, as I live in Houston cost of houses have increased significantly and are harder to come by at a reasonable rate in a good area with better school districts as many Californians and Floridians have been making the move here.

Prices sadly won’t crash because there are a lot of buyers waiting for any sort of dip in prices.

It’s funny because I found


If I am wanting to send a prospective employer writing samples that consist of motions I wrote that have been filed with the court — AKA anyone can look up the case and find the document — do I still need to get permission from my current employer to send it?

Several years ago I was backing in South America and I met an older guy (50s) who introduced himself as a writer & producer in LA for a well-known early 2000s sitcom. He invited me to breakfast at his hotel, we ended up hanging out for a couple of days & he convinced me to let him take some nude photos, which was actually pretty fun. Despite his efforts I didn't sleep with him, even though he was really pushy.
I googled him recently and apparently he's been arrested for SA other women

Can websites like Zillow and trulia hide previous home sale information? Sometimes they list it, sometimes they don’t. A home went up for sale 2 years ago for ~$375k and was later sold around that price. Today that same house is for sale again by somebody that flipped it, and they’re asking $834k, but now Zillow is hiding the previous home value sale history / estimate. Can flippers pay a fee to Zillow to hide this information because of the gross price they’re charging?
