Filtering acts in concert with many other forces in housing markets. New housing supply can even induce some of its own demand, primarily through the mechanism of improved amenities and services.

@kk: Housing prices have declined in real terms across the USA thanks to overbuilding. On a regional level, supply was able to match demand in several markets (many in Texas) over the 2000s, so prices did not get run up there -- measures of housing affordability like the Housing Opportunities Index actually improved by the end of the decade. Even though population has been rising fast, so has new construction, with tens of thousands of units permitted every year. Housing prices also did not increase in cities where demand was depressed by slow economic growth.
