Pineapple Market Update

Become a more informed mortgage broker alongside our CEO, Shubha Dasgupta. Get timely information on the housing market, mortgage industry and the Canadian economy so you can serve your clients better!




In this training session, our CEO Shubha Dasgupta takes us through the weekly market update by kicking off the meeting with updates on the interest rate percentages for insured, insurable, uninsured and rental, and updates us on Alt Lenders; we haven’t seen any significant changes in these areas. Shubha goes through the three sources of inflation: supply-chain-driven, demand-driven and we-don’t-know inflation, as stated by Benjamin Tal.

We go through Remax predictions for the Fall Canadian housing market and three possible scenarios that could happen in the next 12 months: interest rates dropping, policy changes, and house prices dropping. He highlights what we can do if one of these three things happens – one is to get ready to get busy. He goes back to trigger rates and how this can impact our clients and discusses how we can speak to clients in challenging situations – come ready with solutions and be prepared for objections. Lastly, remember renewals.
