The real estate market is complex and can be affected by a variety of factors. However, some general tips to avoid being caught in the next real estate bubble include:
1. Educate yourself about what causes bubbles to form in the first place, so you can be better prepared to spot warning signs.
2. Be realistic about property values – don't buy into the hype or invest more money than you can afford to lose.
3. Pay attention to your local market and heed any red flags (e.g., rapidly increasing prices, large numbers of foreclosures/short sales, etc.).
4. Don't borrow more money than you need for acquiring property.
