Housing Bubbles Everywhere

There are housing bubbles everywhere. Wherever interest rates are artificially low, they are going to impact asset markets, particularly something like housing because most of the houses that are bought are not bought with cash. Usually there is debt involved, people borrow money to buy a house. And the cheaper it is to borrow, the more you can pay for your house. If you have an extended period of time where interest rates are held artificially low, you are going to have artificially high real estate prices.
