Canadian housing stats vs. Mortgage Insurance

  • The “right-side tail” of the distribution of housing prices in the Toronto and Vancouver markets (especially in single-family residential) are dominant factors in statistical mean pricing.
  • The 95th percentile of the real estate market is dominated with speculation from foreign (mainly people connected to Mainland China) buyers and asking prices have been decreasing in the hundreds of thousands of dollars for single family dwellings in the Metro Vancouver region.
  • The only impact I would expect from what is happening in Vancouver and Toronto is that less mortgage insurance will be written – this is derived from the decrease in re-sales of real estate.
