Video Primer: Does Canada have a housing bubble?

My brother has finished his second video using information contained in the primers on this site.  This one explores whether or not the Canadian housing market on aggregate is supported by measures of fundamental value.  While some of the data is now slightly aged (particularly the housing starts, which we recently found out have plunged of late), it still serves as a standing challenge to the real estate bulls to formulate a rational argument as to why residential real estate in most centres represents a good near-term investment. Anecdotes don’t count!

    Cool content but slow down a bit so we have time to digest each argument. Also no more spinning graphs! Just when I try to read one it starts to spiral. Good humour and great content!

    Awesome video, love the humor coupled with solid content. I have no argument against such strong logic however look at the video that comes up after yours if over on youtube.

    Bahaha. This guy has an argument. Sigh…… unfortunately it’s based on pure stupidity.
    I had a friend say an interesting thing the other day…. What if you could short sell real estate? In theory wow you could clean house on the big luxury properties but I have no idea how one would do this. Cheers!

  3. Hey MarKoz. Good points. I don’t have a hand in the videos, but I’ll pass that along to my brother.

    A good video primer on the whole.

    Please, please, please settle down on the effects/wipes/spinning though.

    You need to make available your sources or this looks like a 911 conspiracy video!

    Good video. You actually used data to back up your conclusions. That’s always good to see.
