Real estate data reveals a wee wee virus grows into a recipe for financial trouble. Will communal investors boil a pot of condos for sale in Ontario?

In the oven, you know all condo owners are baking a real estate investment and inquiring into the fluctuating value of their property. You may agree that most investment analysis seems to cover real estate in Canada as a whole excluding condominium housing. The Ontario outlook is mainly on the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Ottawa where the largest numbers of condominiums are found. You might find searching the real estate listings in other provincial areas can act as reasonable housing market guidelines.
