The Economy of Canada Hit Sharply by the Mortgage Policy Modifications

Marcus Arkan, a mortgage expert and CTO of Syndicate Mortgages, discusses the impact of the mortgage policy modifications on the Canadian economy.

Toronto, Ontario: The mortgage policy changes that were implemented in the summer of 2012 have affected the Canadian economy quite negatively. The housing market is one of the major contributors in the economy along with the consumer spending and government sector.

The recent policy changes have had an overall impact on the current economy. The homebuilding industry predicts a 17.5% dip in its business. This will drastically affect the economy as well as all the other sectors associated with home construction.

David Madani, a Canadian economist based in Toronto states that the housing market is something economists need to be concerned about. The Reuters Poll contains his forecasts which predict a 25% price dip in homes as well as a decline in housing starts to 150,000 by 2013. This has caused chaos among builders who now have to deal with several unsold houses due to a falling demand in homes and a lack of interested buyers.

Mr. Madani also highlighted the fact that the housing bubble has one key issue in common which is overbuilding of houses. He emphasized on the fact that they had been building more than 200,000 for many years which they now realize has exceeded demographic requirements.

According to mortgage expert Marcus Arkan, “The policy changes were meant to slow down the mortgage market in Canada and reduce the intense debt burden currently on the economy. Even though the economy will face a declining trend for the next few years, however, the looming threat of the housing bubble will subside making the ultimate effects of this change positive.”

Mr. Arkan correctly observes that the debt burden in Canada will ease due to these policy changes. With artificially low interest rates on mortgages, many people could easily purchase a house on a mortgage which was increasing default risk and debt in the economy. The recent recession had also unstabilized the economy and increased the default risk due to downsizing alternatives taken by many employers.

He also believes that these changes will help prevent the housing bubble burst that occurred in the United States causing devastating effects on their housing market and their economy which the US will have to suffer for the next many years until it completely recovers.
