With stricter lending practices than we had prior to 2008 and buyers able to pay those higher prices, we are in a totally different financial climate than we were in 2008. 

I don't expect a 'crash' at all but, I do feel strongly that rates need to increase to get us moving towards a more neutral market. Perhaps a correction but, certainly not a crash in my humble opinion.

No.  There wasn't a crash during the pandemic, why would we have one now?

I doubt it since builders are not over building like they were the last time.

However if it does crash I am ready to start buying and fixing up foreclosures again.

Stating that home prices are "inflated" implies that the prices are not sustainable. Tony Lewis, It implies that there is something amiss with current real estate valuations. Yet, buyers are willing to pay the prices for homes that they desire and which they expect will continue to increase in value for the term of their ownership.

Real estate cycles for a buyer's market, seller's market' and level market come and go. We have been is a seller's market for a unusually long time. It is time for a correction? Maybe. What will cause a correction? Inflation? Higher mortgage rates? Lack of desire on the behalf of buyers to pay for more expensive houses on an ongoing basis? What???

Crash? No, I do not think so. A market correction is not a crash.

No, we are more into a normal seasonal slowdown right now.  Buyer remorse might kick in but the market will slowdown, level off but no crash unless job market tanks.

Not expecting a crash, however I don't think we will see the increases we have been seeing. Probably a 1-3% increase in the coming years.

You and I don't make the market. You and I adjust our "sales" to adapt to whatever market. There is always always a market and how you and I operate in it shows what was learned in earlier ones. People gotta sell, want to buy and get a bigger share of whatever market than other agents in it wished you did. Don't listen to anyone at a water cooler conversation that says no market, don't bother going after listings that won't sell. Price listings correctly and do a better job with your marketing so they do. Bob Crane takes the right approach and will stay busy, be profitable no matter what the market. Have a healthy inventory for all the segments is the key. Listings are king.

Here in Canada, we did not experience the big crash you did.  However, I've several clients now liquidating their rental properties because they are anticipating a crash and would rather have the cash in their accounts rather than tied up in property.  Many are holding onto only their principal residence.

Real estate will not crash due to lack of inventory with strong demand.  I do expect prices to level off and stop their dramatic rise. Low interest rates should continue as well.

Crash? No.   This is an inventory issue.  I doubt we'll see a return to former price points given the establishment of the current valuations.  The frenzy will die down & bigger economic changes will add to the correction.  Some will label it a crash for dramatic effect.  Nothings lasts forever... a correction is on its way... at some point.  ;)

Real Estate cycles are no myth. They are like nature in that they finish their run to start another and another etc. This cycle is more natural as in willing buyer & seller with no acts of man or God aggressive dynamics. Builders are having to make decisions however as to build, hold or land-bank because of short supplies and governmental interference (eviction ban)? taffy-pulling against low interest rates and fear driven (insecurity) purchasing which promotes demand. People want a place to call home and will defend it now more than ever. How long will this go on? The expected downturn, if left to its own, will travel concurrently with the presidential term is one scenario...Another? Risky State, local & gov interventions

Crash, hopefully not. Cooling down, yes. I think things will slow down a bit, but not a repeat of 2007-2010 or so.

Not expecting but I also don't think that it matters.
Just as we learned 15 years ago, the agent business must be agile.
Today I do not see players like Bank of America corrupting the lending marketplace or other framework institutions creating an unstable economy.
But, I only takes one state player with expectional 'hacking' services to show the USA how vulnerbable we all are. The cashless socieity places ALL THEIR TRUST in the middleshere of unknown faces who will never be able to restore victims to wholeness. 
At this time that is the Achellies Heel I see in the USA banking system and economy.

 Nope.  I imagine that a lot of people will lose their jobs as the Economy continues its downward spiral, many people will be hurting.  But I don't foresee a "crash" or a huge drop in prices.

Bubbles cause crashes.  Supply & demand economics do not.  We're seeing short supply, high demand, and logistically-challenged industries (trucking, building, supply chain, etc) keeping supply lower than it should be.  No crash ahead.

Inflation is here to stay . The Government has created 11 Trillion Dollars backed by nothing . It has plans for yet another 4 Trillion ! These type of things fuel Inflation ( and create havoc on the Purchasing Power of our Dollar ). If a Buyer can settle a Property at 3.5 or less % , they could actually be in good shape over a decade of hyper inflation

I imagine after the Covid moratorium there is a new surge of REO as many out of work people or landlords have not paid their mortgage on time.

I imagine if there are multiple market crashes, may be Silicon Valley modest homes will be still $1,000,000.00    Is current $4M dollars small homes in PA going to sustain forever?

My crystal egg says.... be prepared for any shift, but don't expect anything because you'll likely be disappointed if you are wrong and out of business if you are saying that sort of thing to clients and then it doesn't come to pass.
