AbstractSince the 2008 global financial crisis, the study of real estate risks, bubbles and exuberance has attracted a lot of attention, which is of great significance to the government, enterprises and individuals. This paper carries out a statistical and bibliometric analysis of 739 studies over the past 20 years in this field, and identifies the theoretical basis, research topics and latest research hotspots in this field. Through the construction of a co-citation network and co-word network, we find that the current studies have commonly employed basic economic theories or econometric methods to detect and quantify real estate bubbles. Explosive bubbles and financialization of real estate are frontier hotspots that have gained much popularity. Based on the comparative study, we further discover that American scholars have paid more attention to topics related to the financial crisis, while Chinese scholars have studied topics more related to real estate market policies. Finally, this paper proposes several important research directions in this field for the future.
