Real estate watchers across the country are holding their collective breath, waiting to see what disasters 2015 will bring to an overvalued market, but some agents say Canadians will more likely breathe a sigh of relief.

    Real estate agents will argue for obvious reasons.

    I agree, Joe. Those "doomsayers" that are not in the industry nor working the industry that Jackie Laurin writes about have and they have no vested interest, other than degree in economies and educated opinion in contrary to those whose opinion is $ucce$$ driven. I am sure she wouldn't mind arguing global warming with scientists for her own financial gains.

    Properties in Manitoba have stabilized. Saskatchewan have fallen and I would imagine this has escalated with oil falling in the last six weeks. Alberta fell 50 percent province wide except for Calgary where it's been stable and going on for past 24 months now. BC still far off their presence crash highs except for the wealthy in west/north Vancouver and to the southwest where new housing is eating the last of the available so called "sub-burbs". That leaves Montreal where prices have been cheap from 1978 to just a few years ago, still around $150 a square foot. Toronto I have always said more money than brains. In Mississauga they rose gently after the crash, then in 2012 they went from $400,000 to $500,000 that summer and since sit flat.
