Key Takeaways from 2021 Report on Canadian Housing Market Real Estate

November 1 2021

It has been more than a year and we all are still held captive by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our life has been on hold since then. The pandemic has not just affected our personal lives, it has impacted various sectors harshly. There are several industries in Canada fighting for survival. However, we cannot say the same for the Canadian Real Estate market. Despite one of the worst economic crises across the world, the sector has shown growth. Statistics show that the housing sector remain quite active during the last 2 years across Canada.

Major Factors Responsible for the Growth

  1. Pandemic has forced people to work from their homes. The mind-set of people has changed with the lifestyle changes. People are spending a maximum of their time at home and are getting inclined in moving to suburbs, away from the fast life. The pandemic has changed perspective and brought people closer to their roots. They are looking for bigger and comfortable houses where they can live a healthier life and work efficiently without any issues. It is expected that the trend of moving outside the city will continue for some time.
  2. Despite an increase in real estate prices, people were still investing as their saving capacity has increased during the pandemic period. As there was no place to go, no shopping, no travel anything, people were not making unnecessary spending and were saving more.
  3. The Canadian government also started income relief programs and has lowered interest rates resulting in an increase in customers’ purchasing power. At the start of 2020 after the economic crisis, the bank of Canada lowered its lending rate to 0.25% which is still the same. It became easier for consumers to afford mortgage rates.

After COVID 19 has impacted market conditions and the country’s economy terribly and it has become difficult to predict anything with surety. However, the real estate sector in Canada has shown remarkable growth and the future seems promising. Sector experts and researchers are confident that the trend will continue for the coming months. It is difficult to predict long-term real estate market trend as once the situation come under control the borders will open and immigrants will be able to travel abroad.

The vaccination drive is getting pretty strong and there are chances that the economy gets better resulting in changes in future interest rates.
