Here are three signs to watch for if you want to predict a market crash.

There are three signs you need to watch for if you want to predict whether or not the real estate market is going to crash:

1. Vacant homes. Many vacant homes and tons of motivated sellers can push prices down and impact the market negatively.

2. Desperate sellers. This could be caused by the state or city having economic issues like high unemployment. This type of problem makes homeowners unable to pay their mortgages. Also, sometimes sellers are desperate because there aren’t enough tenants for rental houses, so they aren’t earning income from the property. 

3. Many people leaving. If a lot of people are leaving big cities and the surrounding areas for locations with better economies or more jobs, that means there won’t be enough demand in the market from buyers and renters.
