    Sometimes good news comes in ways you don’t think will help you. However, the Prime Minister has asked the finance minister to re-look and improve the mortgage stress test to make it more affordable for Canadians.

    • The mortgage stress test has had these effects since implemented:
    • Unit sales for single detached units have dropped
    • Canadians could afford approximately 20% less in mortgage amounts
    • In order to get around regulations, Canadians have turned to alternative lending [subprime] and private lending
    • Since Canadians could afford less, they chose to rent and Hamilton rental rates have skyrocketed
    • Rental markets are super tight as vacancy rates have dropped
    • Builders are building less units due to affordability
    • The government took out the euphoria that was present in 2017

    Jingle bells and happy new year since any improvement to the mortgage stress test will all make 2020 better!
