Are We on the Brink of Another Housing Bubble?

Housing market data has been one of the driving factors keeping the overall economic recovery on track. But with housing prices on the rise at a pace that's beginning to worry some investors, should we be on the lookout for a new bubble forming?

Motley Fool contributor Jessica Alling explains the reasons why some people in the know, like Tim Sloan -- CFO of Wells Fargo -- say that the prospect of a bubble is way off. She also talks about why bank investors should be happy to see continued improvements in the housing market.

Wells Fargo's dedication to solid, conservative banking helped it vastly outperform its peers during the financial meltdown. Today, Wells is the same great bank as ever, but with its stock trading at a premium to the rest of the industry, is there still room to buy or is it time to cash in your gains?
