The Latest CMHC Assessment is Out

Mortgage lender, First National, has released it's latest commentary on the 2016 Q4 Housing Assessment by Canadian Mortgage Housing Corporation. Even though a red flag was issued they indicated that there is no threat of a housing bubble & despite ongoing speculation of a crash there's still room for growth in the Canadian real estate market. 
 
See their article below along with a link to the entire assessment:
 
"Canada Mortgage and Housing has made history; flying a red flag over the country’s housing market for the first time ever.

The red alert got a lot of attention when the CEO of CMHC, Evan Siddall, warned it was coming in an editorial for the Globe and Mail.  But once the actual report dropped, reaction was strangely muted.

The CMHC Housing Market Assessment pointed to nine of 15 major markets in Canada as having problems with overvaluation, overbuilding or both.  But the warning was surprisingly soft and the agency’s projections seem to indicate there is no threat of a housing bubble bursting.  In fact, even in the worst case scenario, CMHC’s projections show things continuing pretty much along their current track. 

A parallel report produced by the consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoppers says, essentially, the same thing – despite ongoing speculation about a crash, there is room for growth in the Canadian real estate market. "
