Toronto is Catching up to other Major Cities like Paris and Chicago

What sometimes feels like a bubble getting bigger and inching closer to bursting, can actually be a market adjusting itself. Toronto is one of North America’s largest and most resourceful and productive cities as well as the greatest job creator in Canada. This is a housing market that has been driven by the economy and population growth as opposed to lower interest rates or no down payment purchasing.

What the GTA has been recently experiencing is similar to what most major cities have gone through on their journey to economic prosperity.

Is the Speculation about an Upcoming Nosedive Overblown?

With all levels of Government investing in infrastructure and Toronto’s strong economy, the housing market could be the product of a city reaching its potential more than anything else.
