UNCERTAIN TIMES

On September 15 2008 the world lost $2 Trillion dollars caused by the US housing crash.  Although the effects were much milder in Canada, unemployment grew and many sectors were deeply impacted.  To ensure Canada didn’t get dragged into the housing mess, numerous Federal rules surrounding housing were implemented; shorter amortization periods for mortgages, larger down-payment requirements, a stress testto borrowing, rent control, and much much more.  

Ironically this was also the moment Mike decided to start buying real estate…and the rest is history.
