8 States With the Largest Housing Bubbles

Today, most experts agree we are not in a real estate bubble on a national level. However, the absence of a nationwide or statewide housing bubble does not mean they are not forming at the local level in some states.

GOBankingRates analyzed housing market data and key economic indicators and contacted several real estate experts to determine states that could be on the cusp of a housing bubble. From their research, the following eight states — ordered from highest to lowest population — are considered to be at the highest risk of a real estate bubble:

1 California – The state could be experiencing another bubble because the supply is so constrained, housing is becoming unaffordable to most buyers.

2 Texas – Some cities in Texas are at high risk of a bubble — especially those overly dependent on one or two industries for livelihood.

3 Florida – House flipping in the United States is reaching levels not seen since 2006 and Florida is one of the main culprits.

4-8 Wash., Tenn., Colo., Ore., and Nev. round out the top eight states potentially experiencing a housing bubble.
