According to the weekly telephone polling by Nanos Research, Canadians are the most confident in more than three years that real estate prices will continue to rise, a positive signal for the recovery.
49.2% of respondents, see home prices climbing over the next six months, the highest share since May 2017.
Record-low interest rates and strong demand for more spacious accommodation pushed Canadian home prices and sales to record highs in 2020. Prime Minister Justin Trudeauâ€™s government has pledged to keep the fiscal taps open to support the recovery, and the income support measures have left households flush with cash.
â€œForward perceptions on both the strength of the economy and the value of residential real estate gained a full five percentage points in the past four weeks of tracking.â€ Nik Nanos, chief data scientist at Nanos Research, said in the report.
