Shortly after we posted the 2000-2008 data for our previous story on MB's RE Bubble, a reader asked for one chart with all of the data from 1989-2008. Here it is. (Click to enlarge.)
We haven't pulled out specific data points on this chart, but please refer to our 1990s story ("The 90s: What a Drag
") or our story on the oughts, to date ("Charting MB's Bubble
"), for some of those select points.
While both segments will look familiar to readers of those prior stories, there's no substitute for seeing the rocket-fueled escalation of local RE prices in this chart's second half in comparison to the prior years.
