Today, we proudly release the fifth and final report in our series of five consumer reports – Rapidly Evolving Expectations in the Housing Market, written by our Chief Economist Will Dunning.
These Housing Market Reports, ordered as a direct response to the COVID-19 crisis, have created new data that will continue to assist in tracking shifts in Canadians’ expectations about the housing market.
This fifth report comprises four major sections that not only assess consumer opinions and expectations, but also starts to consider the impacts of the second wave, including:
• How COVID-19 has affected employment and incomes.
• Impacts on expectations about buying homes.
• Attitudes and expectations on topics related to housing markets and mortgages.
• Opinions about the mortgage deferral program.
We encourage you to share this report.
