by

Canada’s housing and rental markets continue to be a topic of conversation for real estate experts and economists, journalists and media outlets, government officials and the general public.

For years now, many have suggested that Canada’s real estate market is a “bubble waiting to burst” with the slightest change in interest rates or other economic factors. Yet, those predictions continue to be on “stand-by” mode, while housing continues to maintain it’s status on The Economists list of Most Overvalued Real Estate Markets Globally.

RentSeeker.ca, one of Canada’s Largest and Most Visited Real Estate Websites has released a NEW 3-D INFOGRAPHIC Map showing the Average Cost of Housing across Canada with Year over Year Price Comparisons.
