What Does the Future Hold for Canadian Brokerages?

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, many brokers faced financial and operational challenges. With public health restrictions keeping people at home, sales activity stalled across the country. However, as things began to stabilize, so too did the real estate industry. Home sales across the country were breaking records month-after-month. Now, as we head into a new chapter—with rising interest rates and inflation, many are asking the question, what’s next for Canadian brokerages?

Earlier this year, we reached out to the more than 8,000 brokers across the country and asked them to complete a survey so we can better understand the state of brokerages in Canada and the viability of the industry. 750 brokers responded, lending their insights on the industry.

Here are some of the key findings from that survey:

You can also watch our webinar where we give an in-depth overview of the findings.
