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!




Our CEO Shubha Dasgupta takes us through the weekly market update in this training session. He starts the meeting with rate updates for Prime and Alt Lenders. He highlights the rate percentage for insure, insurable, uninsured and rental. A full recap was given on rates and how they have been lately, along with the changes that have happened within the past nine months, the incremental rate increases for the year and the current changes. Speaking with your clients about when is the right time to buy and sell, the facts shared, and setting realistic expectations are essential.

Pre-pandemic was a different market than today; the critical difference is that there is high inflation right now. Showcasing multiple scenarios and allowing clients to see what they can afford. Your lead of today is your clients for tomorrow, so considering everything and creating tasks to check on their files and the market is critical. One important thing to remember is that it is not about timing the market; it’s about time in the market. Please refer to the related tab of this article to access the slide deck.
