Is the housing market coming back? Overheating? Do we have a new bubble on our hands? And is commercial real estate a sound investment? How do you invest in real estate, and how does one make sense of historically low interest rates.

The Real Estate Hour airs every Friday at Noon EST, only on SiriusXM 111.
