In this session, our CEO, Shubha Dasgupta, takes us through the weekly Market Update. He kicks off the meeting with rate updates for Prime Lenders and Alt Lenders. Remember, as Shubha stated, “The harder we work, the luckier we get”. He speaks on the impact of business development as a result of the labour strike and how it will impact clients.

Additional information was shared on how the strike will affect delays in construction. Buyers and sellers are trying to get deals done, making payments, and thinking more about waiting on prices to come down before they make a purchase. This is important to note as a broker so that you can get in front of your clients and explain how there is no better time than now!
