PRE­DIC­TIONS MADE BY OUR SPRING PANEL

Were pan­el­lists in tune with the 2017 real es­tate mar­ket or did they miss the mark?

I think just be­cause the prices are get­ting high, the mar­ket is go­ing to slow down. The amount of de­vel­op­ment is go­ing to slow down be­cause I just don’t think the buy­ers are go­ing to be there at that price. We’re go­ing to hit a point where it’s hard for any­one to jus­tify the num­bers we’re see­ing.

The year 2017 will be a lot like 2016, but it will pre­cip­i­tate ac­tion by the prov­ince. So I think that Kath­leen Wynne, Patrick Brown, An­drea Hor­wath and John Tory will all re­sist the scape­goat­ing of im­mi­grants that you’re see­ing south of the bor­der. But I do be­lieve the prov­ince will come up with a strat­egy around af­ford­able home own­er­ship.

BRIAN GLUCK­STEIN

I don’t see any stop­ping of this.… It’s go­ing to be strong, and our condo work, lit­er­ally, we’re selling build­ings in days. So when we meet again next year, I don’t see any change. The only thing I see is higher prices.
