Housing is a human right, like food. They are essential to our survival. Under capitalism they are not a right but just commodities to be traded for profit. When the market goes crazy and decides that housing is an investment, rather than an essential human need, then the state needs to step in and control the market. And it can begin with rent controls and expand to other curbs on the speculative market.
