    “Forbes details why another housing bubble isn’t happening.”

    It’s not so much a bubble to watch out for but a major correction. The core reason for this is that the housing market (at least in SoCal) has deviated from a basic demand and supply relationship to an investment market. Home prices have been padded by foreign investors mainly from China fleeing their own bubble, national investors like Blackstone looking to get rich off of recovering home prices, and more recently, downsizing baby boomers. All these entities are paying all cash for housing, beating out average Joe American and simulating demand.

    When this happens at the same time that real wages have stagnated, and the largest generation, millennials, do not have the money for homeownership to meet the demand of baby boomers wanting to downsize, it leads to a very precarious and unsustainable situation.
