Canadian Real Estate Price Correction To Be One of The Largest In The World: Fitch
Canadian real estate prices are seen further correcting due to eroding market conditions. Fitch Ratings’ latest analysis shows prices falling 15%, due in part to rising rates. It’s the second largest correction in their global analysis, following the second largest price growth.
