Debt worries trump home sales...

Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is betting that Canada's cooling housing market is strong enough without the fringe buyers who have been propping it up.

Housing has been key to Canada’s economic recovery; prices are now higher than they were prior to the recession, and construction activity has been healthy. But home sales are now under pressure from the threat of higher interest rates, and Mr. Flaherty’s latest move to curb 35-year amortizations stands to eliminate a number of potential buyers from the market.

  1. Fantastic blog entry. I have tried many options to get myself out of my debt trap and many companies are nearly untrustworthy these days. As far as when I moved to Canada a few years back, my debt seemed to follow me and continues to follow me wherever I go. I came across
    Cambridge Life Solutions
    and they were pretty on target on how to help my debt issues and have since helped me clear my name. Not only do they have great essential advice, they can help you out as much as a company such as one can. Check them out!!!
