Split into two parts, this podcast includes lively discussions with seasoned Toronto mortgage broker, Christopher Molder, who discusses the impact of pessimism, social media, and the ‘seduction of pessimism’ on investment decisions and the Toronto property market’s perception.

They delve into past and future home construction statistics and discuss possible innovative solutions like zoning changes and advanced construction techniques.
