Real estate data shows a housing market churning in deep turmoil. Do you think buyers and renters have the upper hand during the pandemic?

Welcome to the Ontario condominium real estate data segment of my condo home library, the Condorary.

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.
