A Profile of Home Buying in Canada by Will Dunning


Posted by: Anne Martin

Today, CAAMP released its spring consumer report, A Profile of Home Buying in Canada.

The report, written by Will Dunning, CAAMP’s chief economist and compiled based on research by Bond Brand Loyalty (formerly Maritz Research), focuses on people who purchased homes between 2013 and Q1 2015, 45% of whom were first-time buyers. The report offers a detailed profile of homebuyers in Canada during a period when the housing market was under great scrutiny.

The report also provides an in-depth analysis of the economic health of the economy and its impact on the Canadian mortgage industry. Significant statistics have been extrapolated from the report for easy reference.
