With the federal election now in full swing, Realtor associations from Canada’s largest real estate markets have launched a campaign to “make home ownership more accessible to people across the country.”
In cases where the failure to close the transaction was due to the buyer being unable to secure financing because their bank/financial institution refused to fund, this proved a lot trickier for those transactions.
The Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) is calling on the federal government to “reverse detrimental policy changes that... have made it harder for families to borrow responsibly in order to purchase a home.”
Federal policy changes designed to cool housing prices and demand continue to impact housing markets across Canada with cascading consequences and pressures, says a new report by Mortgage Professionals Canada (MPC).
