The Canadian real estate industry has enjoyed a prolonged period of prosperity. And over decades REALTORS® have shown that they can adapt and thrive in varying conditions.
But there is no safety zone, change is everywhere, and it is not always clear when it is going to be disruptive.
It is in that spirit that CREA embraces the ethos of the Danger Report. A thoughtful, sober examination of the state of our industry. Stefan Swanepoel has a track record of asking the questions that need to be asked, sniffing out the cultural and economic trends that are brewing, and synthesizing the information in a way that it can be used to foster important conversations about the future.
We hope you will read this report and take part in the conversations we need to have to steward our industry into a prosperous tomorrow. We need all of us working together to make this happen.
