I was talking to my friend, Stephen Jones, at the May REIN meeting about the affordability crisis in the Golden Horseshoe’s real estate market. Stephen lives in the East, I live in the West, but the challenges are no different, where will the next generation live?
Stephen theorized that if our kids did not have investor parents, they would have to move to Winnipeg for affordability reasons. I countered, “No, they will be living with you!” to which we both laughed, could you imagine? He’s got four kids too. Imagine if all the kids got married and moved back home with their spouses and started having kids.
Speaking of Winnipeg, this week’s guest on the show is Candice Bakx-Friesen, a rural investor since 2001, Realtor, Trainer to Realtors, Coach to investors, speaker, mother and wife.
