Canadian Housing Bubble Risk Exaggerated, Report Says
"Although there is little evidence of a housing bubble in Canada, concern about the prospects for Canadas real estate market abounds. But in a topic paper entitled Bursting Aspects of the Housing Bubble Myth, TD economists show that four of these specific fears are largely exaggerated. The report is available at www.td.com/economics. 'Canadas red-hot housing
market is on a solid foundation because there is very little evidence of speculative activity,' remarked Carl Gomez, economist with TD Bank Financial Group. 'But while a modest cooling is in the cards this year and next, there are a number of misconceptions about the state of this
housing market and where its going.'
