    Why do we need government anyway. CREA should replace these elected bureaucrats!

    Good comment, we all know that CREA , does not have a vested interest in more volume for their members
    and higher prices so that the amount of fees can rise, it is fortunate that we have a neutral organization
    to bring a note of sanity to the housing market in Toronto, after all, it is not speculators or foreign buyers
    who are setting the market on fire, it is the greedy millennials who are the root cause

    It is spectaculars and foren buyers.
    Just introduce foren buyers tax, lend transfare tax on assignment sell and tax on vacate property

      The part that blows my mind is...agents in Ontario are posting Canadian listings to those foreign buyers.

      Check out and in the search bar enter Toronto Ontario, or Barrie, or Vaughan. Agents are responsible for part of this...promoting to out of country investors!

    Lisa, I hope you realize a foreign investor investing in Canadian real estate, is actually a good thing. Cash coming into Canada helps our economics. A foreign investment whether it is directly into our real estate, or into a Canadian company, means money injected into our economy. This is a good thing. As Canadians, this is exactly what we should want.

    As mindless zombies we forget the real reason why this bubble is created, only 4 things are responsible:
    #1 low interest rates
    #2 artificial greenbelt
    #3 red tape on developers
    #4 supply and demand

    Let's not be silly and blame foreign money, after all foreign money is the backbone to any healthy economy. Bubbles are an inherent nature to the business cycle. Do not let government decide what is best, after all #1 #2 #3 are created by government, let #4, the free market take its nature course.
