  • One of the real estate companies mentioned here acquired 5,000 new single-family homes through a joint venture with two institutional investors.

As per the US Federal Reserve’s (Fed) latest quarterly exuberance index data that shows country-wide housing bubbles, Canada has undoubtedly entered a bubble. But the challenge is to determine whether it is a long-term or short-term bubble.

Some of the market analysts believe that the Canadian housing market stands without a correction in real estate prices over the past six years. The fear is that if the bubble bursts, it may create havoc and panic and damage the Canadian economy.

Canadian real estate prices are believed to be based on emotions more than on fundamental factors. Academic research says that a prolonged and long-lasting bubble can create dangerous corrections.

On that note, let us look at some of the Canadian real estate stocks.
