In this episode, Laurel was able to ask questions gathered from the REITE Club community about what the economy could look like in the next few months and years. As benchmark prices have risen for housing, the fear of missing out has grown even more causing an overheated market. Policies could be put in place by the government in the coming months to calm things down. RBC isn’t predicting a market crash but rather a possibly soft or harder landing with prices stabilizing.
