UBS’ Global Real Estate Bubble Index 2020

Came across this today. What do the experts here think?
Of 25 major cities analyzed, more than half are either at risk of a housing bubble or are overvalued, according to UBS’ Global Real Estate Bubble Index 2020. The index looked at typical signs of a bubble, which include a decoupling of prices from local incomes and rents, and imbalances in the real economy, such as excessive lending and construction activity.

Toronto is the only major North American city in the study that was found to be at risk of a housing bubble. Vancouver, British Columbia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York are considered overvalued, but not at risk of a bubble. Boston is at fair value, and Chicago is the only North American city considered to be undervalued.

How can it be that Toronto is at risk but not the other cities mentioned? I am not sure this makes any sense. I would love to see the raw data and the logic used to come to these conclusions.

Article did say it may not burst even if overvalued.
