A leading economist believes last year’s prosperous market won’t carry on through 2016

    Sherry better tell the baby boomers kids to stop buying, don't think they got the memo. In our area we have the lowest unemployment in the last ten years. Lots of great decent paying professional jobs available. Alot of 20 somethings that know how to save driven by parents who who have their houses paid for and now looking at vacation properties. Big difference from last year is the weather. The long hard winter made us have a slow start last year. Not seeing that this year. Preapprovals are up. Biggest problem is we need more good inventory. Maybe things are slow at Dominion but just because Dominion thinks the sky is falling the rest of us will keep making money.

    In any market there is a need for good advice. I agree that "the boom" is over but what a fantastic opportunity to help folks recover or hedge against hardship. What is also true is that when someone needs to sell then someone eventually has to buy. Always a home for a good broker to fit in. Now is the time to shine.

    Mike's opinion seems focused on discrediting the dominion brand. If I look in my 'area', I can make positive anecdotal generalizations endlessly as well. Unfortunately when discussing the economy the rest of us professionals extract our heads from our pants and rely on a broader range of economic indicators.

    Mike seems focused on discrediting Sherry and the Dominion brand, rather than expressing holistic advice. If I look in my 'area', I'm able to formulate anecdotal stories and advice that means nothing to a 20 minute drive away, let alone the city or province as a whole. Fortunately the rest of us professionals remove our head from our pants and rely on a broad range of economic indicators when offering guidance.
