Toronto Condo Bubble: The Industry Weighs In

There has been a lot of talk about a bubble in Toronto's pre-construction condo market lately. 

Today we have the pleasure of reviewing several articles from people actively involved in the condo market who are challenging the idea that Toronto's condo market is looking like a bubble. Some of the arguments are more weighty than others, but all are worth a read.  

I'll take a look at some of these arguments next week and will see how they stack up against my own thoughts on the market.
