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. Inflation is still causing challenges and is hitting everywhere across the globe. Inflation impacts housing costs, construction, drop in inventory, real estate transactions, business sales growth, etc.

CMHC Housing Supply report and what has been affected within the last few months, including the total number of units under construction and predicted rising rates, were discussed. He further explains some of the biggest challenges when it comes to the cost of construction. Shubha encourages agents to connect with clients the way banks won’t be making a touch point and offering a mortgage review to prepare and position those clients for what is to come.
