If you notice, something gets a bit weird in the mid 70s, housing prices suddenly start booming. There is an echo as it settles below the progressive increase line.
Why is there a progressive increase in the price of housing, a long-term trend beneath the short term fluctuations?
Even without the boom & bust madness, an increase of 300% over inflation is pretty extreme. One could also suggest that something went mental in the mid 1970s, and it's been rather erratic ever since.
