Is there a pattern here? It seems to me that there has been a lot of analysis on what the Fed will do to cool of the housing boom, but its apparent that many parts of the world are dealing with the same thing the US is at the same time. Australia and the UK just came out of their housing boom 2 years ago.

I would think that any solutions for a soft landing for the US real estate markets must come from internationally-orientated strategies.
