Podcast-Why is housing so hot in Canada

General Angela Calla 30 May


This week on an abbreviated Big Picture podcast (co-host John Shmuel is off in parts unknown): If you’ve been in the market looking for a home the past few years, you’ve likely griped about how seemingly far out of whack prices have become. This is especially true if you happen to live — or want to live — in certain neighbourhoods in Vancouver that have suddenly shot out of your price range.

Phil Soper, chief executive with real estate firm Royal LePage, joins the podcast to explain why the West Coast is the best coast at more than just hockey at the moment (Go Canucks, for some of you out there) and imparts some sage advice to both buyers and sellers thinking about taking the plunge.
