Shiller, co-creator of the Case-Shiller Index, which measures housing prices nationwide, said people are speculative enough about buying real estate that a bubble could happen. Boston is one housing market where such a bubble might take place, because the city’s property market has not fallen as drastically as other cities’ housing markets.
