What the Data Says About Canada’s Housing Market Now & Next: An Interview with Ben Rabidoux

A data specialist helps us better understand the many factors that tell us where the market is now - and might be going next.

In our latest Move Smartly episode, I, along with my co-host, John Pasalis, President and Broker, Realosophy Realty (realosophy.com), talk to Ben Rabidoux, Founder of Edge Realty Analytics (edgeanalytics.ca). Edge is a firm that provides data and insights on Canadian housing and economic trends as well as more in-depth reporting on major metro-level trends in Vancouver and Toronto. Many real estate professionals consider Ben’s monthly research reports to be a can’t-miss read for good reason!

Topics covered include:

  • What is the latest data suggesting about where home prices will go next in the context of record interest rate rises that may now be levelling off?
  • What does the bond market tell us about what might happen now and why does it matter to housing?
  • How do the recent sales slowdown and price declines we’re seeing now compare to previous declines in 2020, 2008 and the late 1990s?
  • And will we see the market bounce back this spring?
