Real Estate Bubble: Opposing Views

It seems like we've been debating whether there is a bubble in real estate prices for over five years now and as of yet, nothing has popped. Does this mean there isn't a bubble?

I don't know, but I do know that there are areas that seem way to high priced to be sustainable.

I have found two different articles (in addition to the article I posted yesterday about Buffet) that argue for and against a real estate bubble. I'll report, you decide....

TIAA-CREF: Will the Housing Boom Become a Bust, Pushing the US Into Recession?

BusinessWeek: Why The Housing Bubble Won't Burst

Both articles are short and interesting.
