Financial advisor warns against pinning one's hopes on housing

    Garth Turner predicts housing market crash for last two decades already. Eventually he will be right. It's the same if I would predict the stock market crash and got it right twice in 1996 and 2009. And the next stock market crash would be in 2017. Lets see who's right.

    Agreed Paul. I'll go one further...I predict the Leafs will win the Cup again. One day.

    My prediction and Mr. Turner's prediction share a similar probability.

    The key point is in the first sentence of the second paragraph "...finance blogger and author Garth Turner..." Fear mongering sells books. Calm, rational, logical thought doesn't.

    'nuff said.

    Totally agree - Garth Turner was saying this 18 years ago when I first got into the mortgage business - back then I believed him. A modern day PT Barnum.

    Garth is a broken clock......that is still wrong twice a day.
