Bank of Montreal: Housing meltdown fears 'unfounded'
Toronto Star
Fears of a housing "meltdown" are unfounded and the Canadian housing market "will be able to pull off the fabled soft landing," says BMO chief economist Doug Porter. In fact, the Canadian housing market is now "calm, cool and collected," notes Porter in the wake of the release of housing numbers that show sales edged up just slightly in April from March but declined 3.1 per cent year over year.

Would you be better off financially renting or buying a home?
The Globe and Mail
Every year, Frank Tristani assigns his McMaster University finance students the task of showing whether renting or buying a home makes you wealthier.

Are all our eggs in the housing basket?
Financial Post
If you want to include your home as part of your asset mix, Canadians may not be such bad savers after all. The net worth of Canadians keeps rising — it reached $199,700 per capita at the end of the fourth quarter of 2012.

Humbertown developer launches appeal to Ontario Municipal Board
Toronto Star
A day after Etobicoke's community council voted unanimously against a locally loathed condo proposal for the site of the Humbertown shopping centre, the developer has launched an appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board. City council, not community council, makes Toronto's final decision on developments, and city council has not yet considered the First Capital Realty plan. But developers can pre-empt elected officials and head straight to the provincial planning tribunal if no decision has been made within 120 days of an application.

Has house price deflation begun in Canada?
EconoMonitor
You can see from the chart provided by the house price index that there actually was a housing bust in Canada during the global financial crisis with year-on-year declines reaching 6 per cent. What has separated Canada from other markets where there has been talk of a housing bubble is that Canada was able to reverse this trend and bring the year-on-year change to near record highs in 2010. Since 2011, however, the pace of house price inflation has ebbed and the talk is now about renewed declines.

Is home ownership bad for employment? Maybe
The Globe and Mail
Here's one thing everyone knows, whatever their political or economic leanings: home ownership is good for the economy. Homeowners are savers, homeowners are great employees because they need their jobs, homeowners care about their communities, homeowners build communities, for goodness' sake.
