weJim Rogers notes increased housing supply will mark the peak of the housing market and a major price decline will unfold. 

According to Hong Kong, "Ming Pao Daily News" reported on the 12th, the well-known investor Jim Rogers (Jim Rogers), said recently that Hong Kong real estate bubble has to burst the edge of Hong Kong within three years house prices will fall by more than 50%.

Singapore and Hong Kong at the time of acceptance of Rogers' Ming Pao Daily News "interview, said the Hong Kong real estate bubble has been in extreme, sharp correction is reasonable. A substantial increase in housing supply in Hong Kong "will be the decisive factor for the price."

Official data show that the Hong Kong SAR Government, 2014 Hong Kong individual completions for 15,720 residential units, compared with 2013 units in 8250 nearly doubled. Property annual report this year, the Hong Kong SAR Government announced April 1 predicts the next two years the amount of new homes completed in Hong Kong will be more than 30,000 units, a record high since 2004.

In addition to excess supply, the Hong Kong Government may cancel HK dollar peg system, which will also impact prices in Hong Kong. Rogers has said publicly early in 2015, the Hong Kong Government has the opportunity to cancel the linked exchange rate system.

The author of BoomBustOlogy "Spotting Financial Bubbles Before They Burst", explains why he's shortselling Canadian Real Estate. Below are some bullet poiints from the compelling 9 minute BNN interview, worth listening to - Editor Money Talks 

Canadians have extremely higher debt to income ratios than Greeks do.

Canadian housing prices have diverged extremely upward from the U.S. experience without a corresponding correction.

The Canadian economy is at risk from the oil sell off.

Canadian sub-prime loans could be as high as 25% of new loan creation. 

Canadian hubris, over confidence and fear:

1) Canada is different,

2) foreign buyers want Canadian real estate,

3) real estate prices will continue to rise (the inflation argument),

4) have to buy now before being priced out.

OilCanadaHomesDon’t look now but slumping crude prices are hitting the Canadian housing market like a freight train. Energy accounts for 10% of Canadian GDP and around 25% of exports and the swift fall in oil prices is having a profound effect in the nation’s oil producing regions. Take Calgary for instance, where single-family home sales fell 34% last month. As the following chart shows, Alberta derives some 30% of its provincial revenues from energy royalties and as one TD analyst quoted by the Calgary Herald recently noted, “the effects of significantly lower oil prices had already turned up in resale activity, with sales in Calgary and Edmonton down more than 40 per cent and 30 per cent respectively, from October to January [and] as resale activity slows, prices usually follow.” .....full article & charts HERE

During a recent visit to Canada, (Mansharamani) “noticed a schizophrenic oscillation between housing exuberance and oil-price despair” and concluded that “Canada is now among the most vulnerable large economies in the world.”

Contributing to the impending burst bubble, according to Mansharamani, is rapidly rising household debt that far exceeds GDP, house prices that have continued their upward march, and the falling price of crude oil – all of which will be felt across the country.
