  1. those stats shown were handpicked to support their narritive. GVA home sales down as they showed but thats a volume number. GVA april 2020 home sale prices were still 2.5% above april 2019.

    • Takes a while to trickle down. If ya buy a place in April chances are you wanted to buy for months/years before you pulled the trigger. Also, 2.5% is around the annual inflation rate so maybe a real 1% increase above true inflation?

    My house isn’t worth 1/2 of what I paid for it. So much for my retirement.

    • Trump is my President I am Canadian Just don’t sell now. Wait if you can and sell when things pick back up.

    Can’t wait to move to the Republic of Alberta and Saskatchewan. Moving to the country going to pick me some peaches.

  11. Unemployment is not 13 percent its much higher.

  12. Overpriced market due for a correction, shame it’s one of the biggest assets for most Canadians. Anyways, price can’t keep on going up indefinitely because it’s not sustainable.

  15. Cut out foreigners and Canadians would actually have normal prices to afford them.

    Real estate down. Oil down. Service industry down. Schools down.

  17. Be honest dude. Condo sales will be down bc no one wants to live in condos anymore bc of social distancing.
