I'm oversimplifing the market analysis?With aid packages like CERB and others we haven't yet sewn the inpact of covid. Impacts on real estate are usually 6-12 months after an economic shock. You are saying the Quebec real eatate market is doing very well. It is only in Montreal where you see these large gains and the prices can be increasing just because of lack of supply which is what happened in Toronto for single family homes. There was pent up demand from people who had planned to move before covid or need more space now that they are working from home and there were very few listings. That pushed up prices so it is hard to determine why the pricea increased and whether increases would still be present with more listings. You are oversimplying the real eatate market and whether it is a good investment. There may be certain sectors and locations that are better investment options while still recognizing there is still huge economic uncertainty in the world so there is increased risk.
Your data is mostly from recessions that happened in the past on different circumstances and not because of a virus. So no one knows what exactly could happen or when it would happen because "this is something new and did not happen before". So your prediction is as good as mine at the most.
Which is why exactly i'm presenting stats from "NOW". Timing real estate market what ever be the situation will be a disaster for the investor. If your advice is to wait for the big DIP to invest then we just missed the BUS in MAY 2020. Accept the loss since May 2020 and invest NOW or else wait for another "VIRUS and associated recession".
