In our most recent episode, we invite our special guest Bryn Jones of Centum Mortgage Professionals to discuss with us a recent article published by Maclean's magazine that investigates the impact of foreign investment on the Canadian real estate marketplace.
Is the mass influx of foreign investment responsible for the rapid home price increases we're seeing in Toronto and Vancouver? Are we on the verge of an inevitable major market correction? Is foreign investment in Canadian real estate propping up our economy? Watch the show and find out our thoughts on these issues.
