The resale housing market finished the year on a high note. Strong demandin the second half of the year pushed annual sales for 2009 over 2008 levels.
With the Bank of Canada’s continued commitment to leave the interest rate
low, mortgage rates continue to be favorable for buyers. More sellers are also jumping back in the market.The strength of the housing market has spurred discussion of a possiblehousing bubble throughout the second half of 2009. CREA Chief Economist
Gregory Klump points out, “The extraordinary decline in activity one year ago
and subsequent rebound, particularly for higher-priced real estate, isstretching current year-over-
year comparisons,” he said. “By the second half 
of 2010, price gains are likely to shrink significantly, since a year will haveelapsed since the decline and rebound. Further expected increases in supply
will also take some steam out of the market.”
