These are the 8 global cities on the verge of a real-estate bubble

For the first time, Amsterdam, the Dutch capital, has entered the UBS list of eight cities on the verge of a real-estate bubble — and guess what, none of them are in the United States.

The number one on the bubble-risk list is Toronto, followed by Stockholm, Munich, Vancouver, Sydney, and London.

The bank highlights Toronto as the most prominent potential bubble risk, noting that real prices have doubled over 13 years, while actual rents and real income have only increased 5 percent and 10 percent respectively.

Stockholm ranked second on the list, where real prices have climbed by 60 percent over the past five years. The global real-estate bubble index lists the cities whose housing markets are at highest risk of becoming bubbles that could eventually deflate, or worse.
