This research is to investigate the evidence of a bubble price formation in the real estate sector of Cear¨¢ between the period of 2007 and 2010. The research applied for the Post-Keynesian Theory based on the asset bubble speculative definition. By using the time series co-integration,the Augmented Dickey-Fuller Test (ADF) identifies the unit root in all variables. However all variables are stationary when integrated in first order. The Johansen Test identified one co-integrating vector between the average selling price per square meter and the average construction cost per square meter. This result, according to the Post-Keynesian Theory, was rejected evidence of real estate price bubble formation in the regions studied. The Johansen Test also detected co-integration between home credit and the average selling price per square meter, indicating that home credit has kept stable for real estate price increase.
