Canada needs another 4.5 million homes warns study


A  new study says that we will need another 4.5 million homes over the next three decades. The report from Urban Futures points to population growth and increasing life expectancy and shows a marked departure from the predictions that had historically been reported.

Residential Market Update Market Commentary Definite cooling in the Canadian housing market A recent economic analysis suggests Canada?s housing correction is headed for something a little rougher that the projected ?soft landing?, but not a U.S. style crash. The analysis is based on the premise that housing prices are declining. Relative to inflation that may be true, but in terms of raw numbers price drops are not showing up in the national housing figures. Only Vancouver, where a 2-storey ... Full Article...
