This graphic from the Globe on Saturday summarized nicely another side to the realty madness in Canada.  The ranks of realtors nationally is up just under 27% since 2008, with a staggering 77.8% more agents in the Toronto area. One thing for sure, 8 years of credit gorging, bidding wars and leaping prices do not make these folks investment experts, yet many buyers are following their advice.  Like bugs to a zapper in summer.
