"holding power" in what sense?
So, you have paid off your $800,000 mortgage and own your house free and clear of the bank.... market now determines that your house is worth $600,000 as result of a 'crash'/correction. How exactly does being down $200,000 equate to 'a lot of holding power'?
As I mentioned in my OP, for the simplicity of the poll, I purposely negated mortgage value because I simply don't have the statistics/data on hand to back up what the average mortgage is in GTA/Ontario/BC/Canada/etc.
That's why I'm focused on "paper wealth" in the poll.
