Is the RE market due for correction, crash or still raging bull ?

@Account Closed Its all about free market and mark my words, the pigs will get slaughtered. The market will do its thing and wipe them out.....its going to be awesome to watch! Painful for many, but cash is king and I'm sitting and waiting on the sidelines to buy like I bought in 2011 and 2012. 

I've been investing in longs for 15 years

and as of 11/17/2018 I've just

completed 3 shorts for the

1st time in my career :)

Thinking about shorting DR Horton & Zillow.

Would you short Zillow or RedFin if you had to pick one?

ZE has almost a 60 P/E and RDFN doesn't make a dime...

 most tech crap is still overvalued (post this little "correction"). rdfn is the future of RE,imho. i use their site exclusively and try to avoid Z (other than rent checks).

@Todd Powell if your investments are in corvalis I think you will weather any correction easily as long as you are not over leveraged. Universities tend to stabalize the surrounding markets - at least historically. Not sure what college debt may do to this equation tho.
