Stop Complaining About Housing Prices and Start Looking for Solutions

House For Sale Getty

My suggestion to people concerned about housing in Toronto and Vancouver is to stop looking for a scapegoat, stop searching for someone to blame, and start coming up with real, workable plans. The first step is to accept that high housing prices are justified based on supply and demand and devise a workable strategy that can either increase supply or reduce demand based on current market conditions. Be part of the solution, not the problem.
