Government well-intended intervention not good news for First Time Buyers


With new mortgage rules just a week away it could be millennials and other first-time buyers who could be the biggest losers.
The British Columbia Real Estate’s chief economist Cameron Muir calculates that a family with $80,000 income will see their purchasing power cut by around $100,000 to $305,000 due to the rules.
“Housing demand will slow as millennials, other first-time and early move-up buyers are squeezed out of the market,” Muir has warned.
