Are you over-leveraging in real estate in Metro Vancouver?

Billions of dollars have been invested in real estate in Metro Vancouver, especially in the last few years and we have had the up trend in price.

According to Trading Economics.com, Canadian household debt to disposable income ratio in 2017 was 173.34%, reaching an all time high in the third quarter of 2017.

I always advise my clients to have a Plan B in case the market goes sideways or takes the down trend. At the moment the majority of people is very optimistic about real estate and as a result, a lot of them become flippers without thinking that the market may change direction unexpectedly.
