Volatility & Capital Crunch? Here’s How to Survive


In Canada, we’re now experiencing a big hurdle for real estate investors — inflation.

Rising mortgage rates spell a liquidity crisis. As selling and refinancing become more difficult, we’re witnessing access to capital dry up. What can we do to thrive in this environment?
