Here’s why economists and industry experts say the housing market is not a bubble ready to pop.

Today Is Nothing Like 2008
The 2008 housing crash is still fresh in the minds of many homebuyers and sellers. But today’s market is different. Odeta Kushi, Deputy Chief Economist at First American, says:
