An examination of Canada's real estate market and how to carefully invest.

When canada gets media coverage you often hear about its good quality of life. Canada, a few years ago was one of the top places to visit. People, for the most part, have quality access to a number of services like food, housing, education, etc. Unemployment at the present time is under 6 percent in Canada.

Naturally, Canada does attract people from across the globe. This is largely due because of its economic conditions. With a population of 36.7 million, there are plenty of investment opportunities because of the country's stable political and economic philosophy under Justin Trudeau's administration.

The first step in investing is to look at the latest business and economy trends that are taking place within Canada’s borders.

Before investing in the Toronto Real Estate market it turns out that 2018 the performance was lackluster for several reasons. The research compiled by Gord Collins indicated that prices fell by 4.3 percent the year before. In addition, sales of homes also fell by 16 percent and listings were also down. In other words, looking at housing prices and total sales will provide a snapshot of what is happening in the marketplace.

The third step is to look at the possibility of a housing crash. As reported by some of the real estate agencies, Toronto is likely to possibly have a housing crisis. It is important for local or for foreign investors to carefully look at market conditions.

The fourth step is to analyze government and private real estate data. MarketWatch released a comprehensive and robust report on what led to a slowdown in the Canadian real estate market for the year 2018.

Despite the cooling off of the real estate market, there is confidence and interest in real estate and investment in 2019.
