Canadian Housing Market Fall 2021 Expected to Remain Strong
Canadian housing market prices are anticipated to increase by 5% in the remaining months of 2021, according to RE/MAX brokers and agents.
“This is particularly relevant given the Canadian housing markets is often a good indicator of economic activity in the country, and with the Bank of Canada forecasting economic growth of 4.5% in 2022, a strong fall housing market is a good sign that things may be starting to return to a more natural rhythm” says Christopher Alexander, Senior Vice President, RE/MAX Canada.
This feels reassuring amidst recent fears of an impending housing market crash, especially given that the Bank of Canada too is keeping interest rates at status quo.
