The rise in house prices has caused many to become concerned about another housing bubble; however it is important to remember that there are several key differences between now and during the last housing market crash. One major difference is that lending standards are much stricter now than they were during the subprime mortgage crisis and borrowers are required to put down larger down payments. In addition, most loans being originated today are fixed rate rather than adjustable rate mortgages which means that payments will not increase if interest rates go up like they did during last housing market crash
