This issue of nesto’s monthly mortgage report is a special one. Why? Our consulting economist, Francis Gosselin, Ph.D., ASC, has joined us once again to discuss what’s in store as we move into the second half of 2023. 

Within the coming pages, you will first find this August 2023 quarterly report, followed by the beloved, cyclical nesto monthly report with all its data and insights.

We hope you enjoy!

The data used for this study comes from nesto’s online application and is solely based on the experience of customers/users, not the national market as a whole.

Data is collected from thousands of monthly users declaring their intent or completing online applications across Canada. The data is anonymized and aggregated for analysis.
