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. He kicks off the meeting with rate updates for Prime Lenders and Alt Lenders. He highlights the rate percentage for insure, insurable, uninsured and rental. He explains the current state of the economy and the factors that drive growth. The expectation of new borrowers from a survey shows that a simple online process is very important to them, and a great value is placed on speed across the mortgage process. He explains some helpful tips when working with younger buyers and balancing the digital experiences is a great way to help solidify this. He encourages agents to set the right expectations and clearly guide their clients throughout the mortgage process. Please refer to the related tab of this article to access the slide deck.
