Private homebuyers, for example, could easily find banks to finance more than 100 percent of a property's price. "You could readily obtain a loan for five times your annual salary," says Scheepens, "and all that without a cent of equity." This was only possible because property owners were able to fully deduct mortgage interest from their taxes.

 

Is Germany the only developed country in the world that doesn't have a property bubble?

Germany seems fair valued...

 

The US housing market looks incredibly cheap when compared to the rest of the world. I wonder when the rest of the world will wake up and smell the bubble.
