The Bank of Canada’s recent decision to cut its overnight rate to 4.75% marks the first rate cut in over four years. The BoC indicates a shift in monetary policy aimed at easing financial conditions as inflationary pressures show signs of subsiding. This move is expected to have several implications for the real estate market in Canada.

James and Denny share what they are seeing in today’s Vancouver real estate market and offer their predictions on how these rate cuts will affect local housing. 

This episode will focus on Canada’s first interest rate cut, its effects on real estate, cutting because of economic pressure, media headlines and lack of optimism, different home types reacting in different ways, good products moving fast, people holding firm on prices, 3 year fixed vs variable mortgage products, and predictions for the future.
