Can we please also include a massive housing bubble?

At that time, it wasn't a bubble yet, but home prices did seem to kick into a higher gear starting around 1997.


That happened with a vengeance in Silicon Valley. We bought our house in early 1994 and sold it for more than double what we paid at the end of 2000.
