There are gloomy forecasts and then there are gloomy forecasts, with a new economic report predicting a price correction nearly twice as deep as others for the Canadian housing market.

    Its not the price its the turnover that counts for brokers.

    I think instead of blanketing the whole entire Canada, Capital Economics should be specific in what type of markets could potentially drop by up to 25%. Certain provinces such as Alberta are doing quite well, thank you. If you start taking rural small towns in northern BC or fishing villages in Nova Scotia, I could see a 25% drop in slow moving markets with limited buyers. If Toronto drops by 25%, there be a buying frenzy and drive the prices back up.

    I was a bank lender near TO in the eighties and saw a healthy drop in market values. A correction in any market is necessary from time to time to get values back to where they can be sustained.
