Vancouver is not the second least affordable place on the planet to buy a home, not even close, according to researcher and blogger Ng Weng Hoong (weng@energysasia.com) who has lashed out at the “urban myths” surrounding Vancouver’s housing market which he says a spoon-fed media continually parrots.

Hoong says the media relies on the annual Demographia survey. Its 2016 report was released last week, saying Vancouver was the “third least affordable” city in the world. 

Horsefeathers, says Hoong, claiming Demographia is simply wrong and uses shallow data, since, while it purports to be global survey, it only looks at nine countries.

Banks to make it harder for investors to get mortgages

By |2016-01-02T10:46:27+00:00January 2nd, 2016|Hot Tip|

1. With our central banker, lowering rates – even planning to go negative – in order to stimulate exports it makes it easier to afford larger and larger mortgages.

As a result CMHC will be ordered to tighten rules more and more for investors.

It is already dramatically more difficult to get approved for an investment mortgage – rental income are less and less counted and if you do not have other employment income you likely will be refused.
