Let’s begin with the Play. Hail Sri Ram. Brother. Mother Sita is nowhere to be seen. – Sita. – Mother. Lord. Lord, you are back. – Hail.. – Mother Sita. Your mother went through an awful lot of trouble to have you. But you love to dress up like Sita or Radha. Do you have any idea how much debt I’m under? You have borrowed money from everyone except the blood bank. “Once you’re on my mind I can’t stop thinking about you.” Sir we middle-class people are the best. I know Croatia work. I can make a dancing peacock on a sweater. I can do anything except for getting pregnant. Please give me a chance. To get pregnant? Hire me. Hello..Puja speaking. What happened? Don’t you like my voice? You do, don’t you? Then.. ..talk to me. You’ll like me even better, my lover boy. “For you, my heart rings all day like a telephone.” “For you, my heart rings all day like a telephone.” Puja speaking! – What do you do? – Poet. No..poet. Are they different? All men are dogs. In fact, I would strip them off their clothes and throw then under a bulldozer.
Throw them under a bulldozer.. ..but why strip them first? Naughty girl. – Let’s hear something. – Really? Of course.. Why weren’t you answering your phone? I was bathing. Alone? No, I always bathe in groups. The entire neighborhood is in there with me. I wish I lived in your neighborhood too. It’s hard to decide whether I am the groom or the bride. You’ll look awesome in a bridal dress. I will marry only Puja. – I love Puja. – But I love Puja. If anyone tries to come between me and Puja, I will kill him. Who is Puja? Why is everyone chanting his name? Puja.. (Veneration) Don’t scare me like this. Couldn’t you just tell me directly? But Puja is important. “Radhe-Radhe..” How long will you keep exploiting women against her will? If there was ‘Me too’ during Mahabharata.. ..you guys would’ve been the first to be arrested.
“Radhe-Radhe..” “Without you love has no meaning.” Hey lover boy. Daughter-in-law? – Take a sip, grandma. – Huh.. I mean greetings, grandma. – What are you doing? – Watering the plants? “Radhe-Radhe..” “Without you love has no meaning.” Love you, Puja. I cannot live without you. What? Is it you, Puja? If you call Puja then Diana Penty won’t answer your call? Penty. You didn’t hear I said Diana, you dog. .
In this video we’ll look at the top real estate and housing trends for 2019, from the product side to the financing side. That’s starting right now. Welcome to Home Buyers School, Brought to you by Brookfield Residential. Hi everyone, I’m Karl, welcome to another Home Buyer School video. A channel where you get the latest strategies tactics and tips from home buying experts. And remember if this is your first time on this channel and you want to get the latest strategies from the experts hit the subscription button below. Hit the little notification bell so you don’t miss anything. So today I’m joined by Kevin French, a realtor with RE/MAX realty, and today the question we’re gonna answer is, what are some of the housing and real estate trends for 2019? So Kevin maybe we start this off with in terms of maybe interest rates and mortgage rates. What are you seeing in terms of the direction in 2019 and beyond? Affordability is a pretty big issue.
I think the major concern is that when the government makes decisions, they make them federally, so it’s across the country so we’re trying to band-aid or fix concerns over the Vancouver and Toronto market, specifically, and then those new rules apply as a blanket to the entire country. The stress test is obviously slowed
down the market overall. A lot less buyers in the market. People are then weighing well if I could afford 400 and now I can only afford 300 maybe I’ll just keep renting because I don’t get what I want.
And then there’s speculation that they’re going to change the mortgage rules to be in the favor of the buyers maybe that’s from a 25-year amortization to a 30-year or maybe it’s assisting with the downpayment in some way and that would make it so that more buy – buyers could potentially afford more or be more comfortable purchasing but those aren’t set in stone yet so because it’s in the unknown there’s a few handful buyers that are waiting on the sidelines. And we also saw in the budget the the first time homebuyer incentive as well as the I think the increase in amount you can take out from your RRSPs as well right so those kind of things are… And that’s withdrawing RRSPs for your first time home purchase. They are taxes so you don’t have to pay taxes on the withdraw but you do have to pay it back within 15 years, unless things have changed or they’re planning on adjusting that so it’s a way to you know expedite your down payment if you did have that money set aside for retirement and get you into a property sooner. Increases and that would obviously make it so that your mortgage payments would go down you’d have more equity in the property from day one.
Let’s just move from finance to actual product types. For example in my neighbourhood I’m starting to see a lot of duplexes starting to be put up. It’s like single-family torn down, duplex comes up or duplex, duplex, duplex, duplex is that something that’s a trend generally or is it more just because it’s a neighborhood or…. This must be inner-city? So that’s infill development which is ever throughout everywhere in inner city. That’s basically the city turning a 50-foot lot into two homes or maybe four if they can fit a four-plex on there, that’s increasing density and in Calgary there’s great opportunity for small developers or large developers if they’re working in the infill game that they can purchase a property and then build to and make profit out of it. That’s probably the biggest increase or a reason why there’s an increase in
infills and while there’s a demand for them but it also gives buyers the opportunity to purchase a brand new property that is in the area that they want and if it’s duplex typically more affordable for them as well.
If you’re going if other trends within what’s being built is secondary suites or the ability to have a revenue helper whether it’s a mother-in-law suite or a family member is going to live there we’re seeing a change in the city’s development permits. So in new areas they’re handing out new zoning and new regulations that allow for that to be legally included and then the builders are building that and then of course that gives the person the opportunity to live on the second the first and second level and then have somebody else live in the basement and rent it out completely legally. Is there popularity of a specific home type? Is there something bucking the trend or is it still single-family homes? You know there’s the city and people like increasing density so in terms of multi families, or is it still single-family still the big driver in the market? If price point didn’t matter it would be single-family. Since it does it drive some single-family purchasers in a duplex. Single-family has weathered the storm the best so it’s still the best purchase overall. I don’t think that we’re gonna see this shift for a longer period a much longer period of time of the needs of the Millennials or other generations needing a different lifestyle in terms of condo living.
I think we’ll see a shift in needing less space so not needing a 2,400 square foot duplex over three levels and for two people or for three people or for four people. That’s a that’s a lot of square footage so there’s a handful of people that have sold homes with me in the last year that have sold their home simply because it’s just too much space. They don’t go into this room they’ll go into that room we barely go into the basement so why do we have this.
They’re downsizing and they’re in their 30s. So it’s not like your typical downsize or it’s like I need to reduce because all my children have left, it’s like I don’t need to use every single room so why do I need to…
And with that they’re often decreased in their mortgage. In your opinion then is 2019 is still a game this may be a loaded question but it’s 2019 a good year to buy a home? It’s an excellent year to buy a home. I’ve been hesitant in saying that it’s a good year to buy a home for the last four years. I’m more confident in it now because you know the Calgary real estate board puts out statistics every year and they make predictions on what’s going to happen and the following year and those predictions are pretty accurate. This year I believe it’s 2.4% decrease in home prices. That was expected to be seen in the first half of the year more so than the last half of the year. Now that we’ve had the election of course that has impacted things it’s kind of hard to pinpoint it because we just had the spring market or we’re in the middle of the spring market at the same time as having the election in the new control so there’s the market is extremely busy right now.
Is it because it’s Spring? Is it because of the change? But it’s speculation is that’s given a lot more confidence to the market overall And how about like there’s a spring market and is there’s a fall market right? What are your expectations in terms of the fall market? Do you feel like there’s like a steady increase like in terms of buyers or are we still in that market where
people are still hesitant? It’s you’re probably similar to the spring people will be a bit hesitant still. There’s still a lot of people that are trying to time the market and see where the bottom is and then and then purchased then. There’s been a lot less conversation though now in 2019 about doing that then there has been in the last three years. The last three years it’s I think it might go down in the next six months I’m gonna wait I think it might go down. The reality is, the amount that Calgary has continued to decrease and while you talk specifically to the detached side, the
amount that the markets continued to decrease.
If you were renting a comparable home, you would still be better off to purchase. If you purchased in 2015 – 18 that detached home that’s 2,000 square feet say the cost to rent that property and then what you’d be paying in a mortgage and building in equity the offsets pretty much the same so you might as well just get the property you want cuz once it turns around you’ll be gaining equity. Nice if you can time it perfectly. Which I don’t think anyone can because there’s always another bottle right And remember if you want to know more about the advantages of owning versus renting, check out her video above in the description below. So Kevin did you have anything else add in terms of housing transferred 2019? I would just encourage people to purchase what they can afford and not what they think they need within your means and buy the property that’s the right size for you. Don’t overspend and buy a place with three bedrooms that you’ll never enter. and if you want to know more about home buying and the home buying process, watch these videos here and don’t forget to hit the subscribe button and the notification bell, to keep learning from the experts.

The U.S.A. versus Iran. Over the past week, tensions in the Middle East have ramped up bigly, after Iran shot down an unmanned American sky dildo. And now, America said that the drone was shot down over international waters. But Iran said it was flying in their airspace. We’re learning that on Thursday night, America almost went to war. Just 24 hours ago, last night, the U.S. was within minutes of striking Iran, but President Trump suddenly stopping the strike before it could happen. President Trump tweeting this. Sweet Lord. America was ten minutes away from bombing Iran. And who stopped it? Donald Trump. (applause) Yeah. What-What’s that? Who ordered the strike? Also Donald Trump. (laughter, applause) The point is, we are at peace, thanks to, and in spite of President Trump. (laughter) And can we just take a second to acknowledge how often this happens? Trump takes us all to the brink of a crisis, and then, he’s the one that pulls us back at the last second.
Sometimes it feels like there are two different Trumps making these decisions. And you know what? Like, maybe there are. Maybe he has an identical twin running around the White House. You know? It’s like one of those Sister, Sister situations. Yeah. I mean, that would explain all of the flip-flopping. In fact, it would explain everything. He’d be like, “Mexicans are rapists!” “And some of them are good people.” “I’m gonna release my tax returns.” “No, I’m not.” “I’m gonna play golf.” “I’m also gonna play golf.” (laughter) So, as you saw in the president’s tweet, the reason that he called off the missile strikes is because, ten minutes before the launch, he found out how many people could die in a strike, and to him, a drone wasn’t worth taking human lives.
And honestly, I commend him for even saying that. But now, people are shooting down his story, like it’s an unmanned sky dildo. NEWSMAN: The Washington Post today reporting the president had been briefed hours earlier about potential risks and casualties, and was supportive of military action until around p.m., when he appeared to change his mind. This just doesn’t add up that… that when the president meets with his top Pentagon people, they give him a very thorough list, a menu of targets, and say, “You can hit this target, “you can hit that target. If you do, here are the possible casualties.” They run through the whole thing. Yeah, according to multiple people, the president’s story doesn’t make sense. ‘Cause they say a president doesn’t find out about potential casualties ten minutes before a strike. Those numbers are actually presented when the strike is proposed. In other words, they give the president a menu of options, and then he picks what he would like to do.
And I think that’s where this all fell apart. You see, this isn’t a guy who uses menus, okay? It looks too much like a book. This is a guy who points at pictures and asks for numbers. That’s who this is. “Give me that one with an extra that one.” That’s him. “And I’ll be taking a soak in the ball pit. Let me know when it’s ready.” Now, as much as we would like… we would like to believe that this happened because Trump didn’t pay attention in a meeting, it might actually be more complicated than that.
Right? Because it’s been reported that the president may have been given two different sets of casualty numbers. Yeah. That’s what happened. Well, that’s what they’re saying happened. And that wouldn’t be surprising, because it turns out there are two different factions in this administration, and they’ve both been pulling Trump in very different ways. NEWSWOMAN: Sources tell CNN Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton both favored striking Iran, while outside advisors reminded him of his promise to get the U.S.
Out of wars, not in them. NEWSMAN: Vice President Mike Pence supported the planned military strike on Iran but also agreed with the president’s decision to stop them. (laughter) Wait, what? The vice president supported launching air strikes and not launching air strikes? I’ve got to say, the last thing I expected to hear about Mike Pence is that he swings both ways. (laughter) (applause, whooping) Like… seriously, what a… what a straight-up kiss-ass. He’s like, “Sir, I think we should strike Iran.” (as Trump): “I don’t want to do it.” (as Pence): “And you shouldn’t, sir. Great decision.” So the hawks were pushing Trump into war, and the doves were urging restraint. And I don’t know what the doves told President Trump, but it looks like for now, it’s worked. NEWSMAN: The president says if it comes to war, the U.S. will “obliterate Iran,” but what he really wants is talks aimed at a new deal to keep Iran from getting nuclear weapons.
If… Iran wants to become a wealthy nation again, become a prosperous nation, we’ll call it “Let’s Make Iran Great Again.” Does that make sense? Make Iran Great Again. -(laughter, groans) -Wait, what? Make Iran Great Again? So in 48 hours, Trump went from threatening Iran to pitching a MAGA franchise in Tehran? (laughter) And I’ll be honest, I don’t know if MIGA has the same ring to it. (laughter) And… it could be a lot of trouble if Iran ever pisses Trump off. He’d be like, “All right, they changed their minds, so we’re switching it to “Never Iran Great Again.” Be like, “Sir, no, I… I don’t think…
I don’t think we should…” “Change it now! Change it to Never.” “Look, sir, look what you’ve done.” -“Oh, my-my bad.” -(laughter) Look, if you pay attention, it’s pretty clear to see what’s happening here. Trump doesn’t want to go to war with Iran, right? And he also doesn’t mind sitting down with them to make a deal. Feels like the truth is, he just doesn’t want Obama’s nuclear deal. So, Iran, here’s all you need to do. Take the nuclear deal you already had, replace “Obama” with “Trump,” turn the whole thing gold for no reason… and, most importantly, don’t forget to use pictures. It makes it easy for him to decide.
Yeah. That’s a deal both Trump teams can get behind. .
