In this training session, our CEO Shubha Dasgupta takes us through the weekly market update by kicking off the meeting with rate updates for Prime and Alt Lenders and updates us on the interest rate percentages for insured, insurable, uninsured and rental. He highlights that inflation pressures will remain high and goes over different scenarios where we may be impacted.

Shubha also discusses recommendations going into 2023, with one suggestion being that for those who are on variables and considering locking in to wait. He goes over the fall economic update and assignment sales as well as various situations of what is happening within the precon market and the types of mortgages clients are currently taking; we are seeing variable rate mortgages dominating. Lastly, he highlights that permits are on the rise and that we should focus on renewals within our businesses.
