Is the future of development mixed-use?

Mixed-Use in Alberta: The Conversation

Kevin Gardner of Canada ICI recognizes that mixed-use developments face some challenges in Alberta’s two major real estate markets, Edmonton, and Calgary. He also sees how these multi-purpose buildings can foster vibrant Canadian neighbourhoods where people live, shop, and work in a concentrated area.

I'll post this story after it airs tomorrow on cbc.


It's an undercover story by CBC marketplace on realtors who blacklist homes that don't pay as high of commission fees.
In one case the realtor told an undercover buyer that wanted to look at one of these houses with lower commission fees that they tried to call and arrange an appointment but they never heard back, which was a lie. In another case the realtor said the house was priced $200k over what it should be - do you still want to look at it? The house was priced on par with other similar listings in the area.
This realtor practice is not uncommon and called steering and it's very difficult for realtors to get caught because how does someone know - they tend to run the show.
The story also talks about how Canada has some of the highest commission fees in the world.

That industry can and needs to die.
