Canada | Youtuber Ken | The era of blind bidding is coming to an end, will the Canadian housing market fall?

During the federal election in September last year, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau proposed that if he is elected, the Blind Bidding system will be abolished. As a result, the B.C. government has announced that it will eliminate the blind marking system next spring. Youtuber Ken’s video titled “The era of blind bidding is coming to an end” discusses how it will affect Vancouver’s housing market if the blind bidding system is really abolished.

What is Blind Bidding?

Blind bidding describes the situation where there’s more than one offer for a house that’s one sale, meaning that multiple buyers have expressed their interest, resulting in a bidding war. The house seller is not obligated to disclose the details of the bids they receive. When a buyer does not know what other buyers are bidding, he will blindly increase the price to try and secure the purchase before other interested parties get to it. From the buyer’s perspective, they may end up paying a much higher price; secondly, they may compromise on the the conditions they originally wanted to secure the deal.

The BC provincial government is currently canceling this blind bidding policy and adding a new policy called a “7-day cooling off period.” If you want to know why the government canceled and how the new policy – 7-day cooling-off period affects the Canadian housing market, you can watch the video.
