Canadian real estate prices remain strong. This is in large part due to a low interest rate environment that not only affects borrowers but investors as well. With low deposit interest rates in Canada, US and Europe, investors are looking for appreciating assets to invest in.
Canada with its diverse stable economy is a desirable place for all sorts of investments and real estate has been the choice for many looking to acquire assets that appreciate.
Meanwhile, the Federal and Provincial governments have been trying to slow down the pace at which home prices have been increasing without any noticeable success and with some unintended consequences. The demand just seems to outweigh the supply which could be for years to come in this low interest rate environment.
