Will 2023 be a real estate blood bath? Well, if you think seeing worse than 2008 qualifies, than some think it is a good bet.

Credit ratings are not what they used to be.

We have fudged with credit ratings so that borrowers now enjoy artificially high credit ratings. This not only ends up with bad lending, but blurs the line between prime and subprime borrowers when it comes to selling the debt.

Jobs are not as great at the headlines suggest.

We covered this a few shows ago. The bulk of these jobs will go away right after Christmas.

Layoffs and hiring freezes.

Companies are not just talking about not cancelling currently outstanding job offers and hiring freezes, but actually laying employees off.

Peter Schiff is worried. And he called it last time.

Before the downturn in 2006, all the pundits used to laugh at Peter Schiff when he predicted the downturn. They are not laughing now and he is predicting worse for next year.

Cars too.

Consumers are paying insane car prices for both new and used autos. This just adds to the overall debt that helps push us ever closer to that real estate blood bath.
