Apples and oranges. Low interest rates alone aren't a problem. Low interest rates, bad regulators, and increased leverage are a problem.

Housing is mostly a supply and demand reationship. When lenders were throwing money around due to low rates, securitization, and general dumbassery that distorted that relationship.

Finally, interest rates do NOT need to go up right now. Inflation is non-existent and deflation is still a near term risk (though much less so than a few years ago).
