The Great Reset, Condo Vultures, Cold Feet and More — January 2023 Roundtable

 New Year, New Roundtable! Urmi talks to John and Steve about what we can expect to see as Canada faces an uncertain housing market in 2023.

In this episode, Move Smartly editor Urmi Desai talks to the regular crew, John Pasalis of Realosophy Realty in Toronto and Steve Saretsky of Oakwyn Realty in Vancouver, about how and when the market will fully feel the effects of higher interest rates, why Urmi’s dream of snagging a TO condo at meltdown prices may not be an easy one and what impact policy changes new and old, including BC’s new buyer ‘cooling off period’, Canada’s foreign buyer ban and record levels of immigration, will have on the market.

And as always, Steve and John respond to your great audience questions along the way!
