There has been and always will be consistent change regarding the housing market, but with the right information and guidance, it does not have to be so uncertain.
Currently, the Bank of Canada has been increasing rates in order to curb inflation and the prices of houses have steadily declined. However, Jimmy Jean, Chief Economist and Strategist for Dejardins has been speaking publicly to reassure that the prices will stabilize. Jean states that there is not a collapse expected “by any measure” in the near future based on our current trends.
The Bank of Canada is expected to raise the interest rates by possibly another 50 basis points by the end of this month.
