Canadas housing affordability has reached the worst level in 28 years RBC

first_imgTORONTO – Canada’s housing affordability has reached its worst level in 28 years and is bound to deteriorate even further, say Royal Bank of Canada economists.The share of income a household would need to cover ownership costs hit 53.9 per cent in the second quarter of 2018, the economists said in a report released Friday.Based on their analysis, the cost of owning a home in the country hasn’t been this bad since 1990, when the share of income a household would need to cover ownership costs was 56 per cent.“After years of worrying about deteriorating affordability, this trend has continued and unfortunately, when you look at where interest rates are going ownership affordability will continue to deteriorate for at least the next little while,” said Robert Hogue, a senior economist at RBC.The lack of affordability can largely be blamed on rising interest and mortgage rates, he said.He also found the entire country’s affordability is being dragged down by the Vancouver, Toronto and Victoria markets, where affordability has hit 88.4, 75.9 and 65 per cent respectively.Vancouver’s rate is at a “never-seen-before level anywhere in Canada” and “calling it is a crisis is no exaggeration,” Hogue and his fellow economists noted in the report.They found that buying a single-detached home in the city is becoming something only the rich can afford because it would take almost 120 per cent of a typical household’s income to cover ownership costs. Settling for a condo is increasingly become a luxury for many, they added.In Toronto, they discovered that the relief buyers got around affordability late last year and early this year was “small and short-lived,” because the market continued its upwards trajectory.The Toronto Real Estate Board previously said the average selling price in the region in August was $765,270, while the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver said its composite benchmark price for the time period was $1,083,400.Both markets were coincidentally identified by the Union Bank of Switzerland on Friday as having some of the world’s biggest housing bubbles, with affordability risks that were on par with Hong Kong, Munich, London and Amsterdam.RBC’s economists are predicting that affordability levels will continue to deteriorate if interest rates keep rising, but they expect household income increases to soften the blow for buyers.The RBC report also revealed the share of income a household would need to cover ownership costs was 28.4 per cent in Edmonton, 38.6 per cent in Ottawa, 43.9 per cent in Calgary and 44.1 per cent in Montreal.“We have seen deterioration over the past year in affordability, but still in the vast majority of markets outside of Toronto, Vancouver and Victoria, we don’t see affordability being at an unmanageable level,” Hogue added.“Generally, affordability is okay.”last_img read more

Sale of electoral bonds skyrocket by 62% in election year: RTI reply shows

first_imgNew Delhi: The sale of electoral bonds has skyrocketed ahead of Lok Sabha election by 62 per cent as compared to last year with the SBI selling bonds of over Rs 1700 crore, an RTI reply shows.In an RTI response to Pune-based Vihar Durve, the SBI has said that in 2018 it had sold bonds worth Rs 1056.73 crore in the months of March, April, May, July, October, November. This year in January and March the bank has sold Electoral Bonds worth Rs 1716.05 crore, the response said. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The country will go to polls this month with first phase of voting to take place on April 11. The sale shows an increase of 62 per cent from those sold during 2018. The sale of electoral bonds opens in the SBI branches when Finance Ministry issues notification of the sale for a given period. The data provided by the SBI shows that highest purchase of electoral bonds for the year 2019 was reported from Mumbai where the bonds worth Rs 495.60 crore were sold. It was followed by Kolkata with the sale of Rs 370.07 crore, Hyderabad with sale of over Rs 290.50 crore, Delhi with Rs 205.92 crore and Bhubaneswar with the sale of 194 crore. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KThe scheme of electoral bonds notified by the central government in 2018 has been challenged in the Supreme Court. Only the Political Parties registered under Section 29A of the Representation of the People Act, 1951 (43 of 1951) and which secured not less than one per cent of the votes polled in the last general election to the House of the People or the Legislative Assembly of the State, shall be eligible to receive the bonds. The bonds may be purchased by a person who is a citizen of India “or incorporated or established in India,” the government had said in a statement last year. The bonds remain valid for 15 days and can be encashed by an eligible Political Party only through a Bank account with the authorised Bank within that period only. A voluntary group working in the field of electoral reforms, Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) has demanded a stay on the sale while CPI-M has challenged it before the Supreme Court in separate petitions. ADR recently filed an application in the apex court seeking stay on the Electoral Bond Scheme, 2018 which was notified by the Centre in January last year. It said amendments carried out in relevant Acts have “opened the floodgates to unlimited corporate donations to political parties and anonymous financing by Indian as well as foreign companies which can have serious repercussions on the Indian democracy”. The application further said: “Electoral bonds are being made available for a large number of days in three months leading to general elections in the country scheduled to be held…in April-May 2019 to constitute the 17th Lok Sabha. “It is expected that enormous amount of corporate funding would be received by political parties in April and May and this would play a critical role in the elections.” Referring to research and data compiled on the issue, the NGO has said that close to 97 per cent of all the bonds purchased so far were in denomination of Rs 10 lakh and Rs 1 crore with no demand for bonds of smaller denominations. “The fear with regard to electoral bonds has been proven right in light of the ruling Bharatiya Janta Party’s annual audit report for 2017-18 according to which the ruling party received the largest chunk of the funds received through electoral bonds. “BJP has earned more than Rs 1,000 crore in 2017-18 and is all set to be the maximum gainer of political funding in the last financial year, according to its annual returns submitted to the Election Commission,” the application has alleged and also referred to media reports on this. During the hearing of a separate petition by the CPM on the issue, the Election Commission has informed the apex court that it had written to the Centre saying the changes made in several laws relating to political funding will have “serious repercussions” on transparency.last_img read more
