The past year has been like no other, with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic disrupting how we work and how we socialize. As we rigorously and persistently monitor our economy and our housing market, we have grown almost accustomed to extreme data points, describing such things as record household savings, unprecedented public debt accumulation, rock-bottom interest rates, and immigration flows that, at one point, all but dried up.   Twice a year, rennie intelligence produces the rennie landscape, that tracks a variety of demographic and economic indicators that directly and indirectly influence our housing market here in Metro Vancouver. Our goal is to provide our community with a basis for evaluating the trajectory of the factors that collectively define the context for the real estate market.Our rennie intelligence team comprises our in-house demographer, senior economist, and market analysts. Together, they empower individuals, organizations, and institutions with data-driven market insight and analysis. Experts in urban land economics, community planning, shifting demographics, and real estate trends, their strategic research supports a comprehensive advisory service offering and forms the basis of frequent reports and public presentations. Their thoughtful and objective approach truly embodies the core values of rennie.

a look at changing (and unchanging) consumer sentiment
With spring upon us it’s time to check in on the latest iteration of the rennie consumer sentiment survey. We’ve been conducting the survey semi-annually since 2021 (in partnership with the Mustel Group) in order to better understand the “why’s” of our market. As traditional data sources around residential real estate are focused on what has already happened with metrics like sales and listings, sentiment helps us understand consumers' views and intentions, which in turn influence future behaviour.
