Last year was a great year for brokers in Toronto, but it also marked a record for that market

    A Registrant under REBBA is in violation of the act when making the type of statements attributed to Mr. McLachlan in this article. There is no debate on this issue, it is simply the law and Mr. McLachlan like all registrants has received repeated warnings from the regulator to not make them (even casually at a back yard bbq). Why you may ask?

    Many will notice Brad Lamb has changed his communication strategy in the last 12 months to try and coverup all the Google documents that place him in breach of REBBA.

    Real Estate Agents are simple Sales Representatives and that is why the government limits the type of advice or commentary they are allowed to make.

    The franchise company RE/MAX or the TREB Economist, are not registrants and are not subject to the Real Estate Council of Ontario which is why they can release the non-sense they do without fear of government prosecution. Registrants like Ken cannot.

    2016 is not 1990. Google now records every false and misleading statement that is issued by anyone giving advice. You need to search the Toronto Star archives right now to find the 1988/89 same non-sense that right now is being recorded today on Google.

    Calgary homeowners already last year were seeing 15% declines in their home's value but Average Selling Prices like Mr. Lachlan referenced in this article only dropped 3%.

    The real estate market in any city, province or even country is not so to predict or describe. However it would be nice to hwar from those actually doing the buying and selling
