The Housing Bubble Is About To Burst
"After an amazing four-year boom in residential real estate, the housing market could finally be topping out and heading for a downturn... It's always tricky to call the top of an overheated market, and the pessimists have been wrong before... But this time something important is different: Interest rates are inching up...
Today's housing prices are predicated on an impossible combination: the strong growth in income and asset values of a strong economy, plus the ultra-low rates of a weak economy. Either the economy's long-term prospects will get worse or rates will rise. In either scenario, housing will weaken."
