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 insured, insurable, uninsured and rental. Affordability is a challenge due to high-interest rates, which has caused a significant difference in what is happening in the market compared to previous years. Shubha explained that sales have dropped, but agents must pivot their business and look for opportunities that don’t impact sales; one great way to do that is through Renewals. He ended the session by sharing four ways agents can maximize mortgage renewal clients. Please refer to the related tab of this article to access the slide deck.
