Are Home Prices Approaching Bubble Territory?

Are Home Prices Approaching Bubble Territory? | MyKCM

As home values continue to rise, some are questioning whether we are approaching another housing bubble. Zillow just reported that:

“National home values have surpassed the peak hit during the housing bubble and are at their highest value in more than a decade.”

Though that statement is correct, we must realize that just catching prices of a decade ago does not mean we are at bubble numbers. Here is a graph of median prices as reported by the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

We can see that prices rose during the early 2000s, fell during the crash and have risen since 2013.

However, let’s assume there was no housing bubble and crash and that home prices appreciated at normal historic levels (3.6% annually) over the last ten years.

Here is a graph comparing actual price appreciation (tan bars) with what prices would have been with normal appreciation (blue bars).

Bottom Line

As we can see, had there not been a boom and bust, home values would essentially be where they are right now.

Great Places at the Lake!!

Image result for Lake of the Ozarks

Lake of the Ozarks is hands down one of the Best places to call home! There are so many attractions, fun venues, state parks and a few hidden gems that are not very well know to the outside world! Besides being one of the best recreational Lakes in the States we are one of the most family and community oriented. We enjoy our tourists and appreciate all the revenue they bring in so we like to share our history with the tourists and those who are newcomers to our wonderful community!

First on our list is Lovers Leap of Lake Ozark, which is said to be the spot where an Indian Maiden jumped off the cliff rather than forsake her lover and it was said that the lover later jumped off the same cliff. There is not a whole lot of surety as to the truth of this legend, but it makes for a great love story and many people go there just for the “romance” of it and the view!

Second on the list is the Overlook on the Upper Power Plant Road in Lake Ozark, courtesy of Ameren UE. This is a beautiful place to go and look at the hydroelectric facility where you can see the difference in elevation between the lake and the Osage River! This is a fun spot for tourists and locals alike to get out and see the amazing view offered by this beautiful spot!

One of the most famous and well known places throughout Missouri is the castle at HA HA Tonka State Park. Many people from all of the world come to stand beside the castle ruins, get married inside its standing walls and enjoy the hike through the trails! This is one of our favorite spots and the story behind it is intriguing and worth looking up!

It is hard to describe all the amazing places that Lake of the Ozark has to offer, it would take more than one blog to share all that our lovely community has to provide with all the big attractions, the local museums and so much more! The thing to do is drive around, explore the city and the surrounding communities, talk with the locals and learn about our history. We have more to offer than just Lakeside attractions for family fun!

I hope to see you around our fair community!

Thank you,

Valerie Littrell
