Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Living in detached homes is so lame Having had my share of living in both I disagree, detached and condos each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Detached homes are more desirable if you are stuck with kids, don't mind commuting, and your main source of entertainment is television. Also, ...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

I get it Geyser...you own a condo and you love it. I personally think the value in property is in the land, and if you don't own and control the land you don't own much of anything. You may try to argue that there is land to a condo - but get real man. Condo might do okay in the short run, and is s...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

WTF are you talking about, % return? I'm at 2400% I'm talking about the bizarre logic you used to try and convince yourself that detached homes were currently a better investment than condos, despite condos currently being on a hot upward run while detached prices are sliding. Here is you hilarious...

Ah! Another well reasoned and powerful rebuttal from ETB. It's hard to counter such a brilliantly contrived and cutting ad-hominem attack.
Now, about that "percentage return" thing. Cat got your tongue? :lol:

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Lol That's what I thought Geyser. Your confidence in your prediction just went out the window like that fly I was chasing around with a swatter Once again you either failed to read my post or you deliberately misunderstood it. Try re-reading it. I lack confidence in your ability to borrow and repay...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

30% and 70% is more within the range of reasonable fundamentally based expectations. Toronto is already closing in on the lower number. Let's see how much you truly believe that above...ill take a wager. This is for city of Vancouver detached...and my bet is against. Timeframe of 3 years. $500 on a...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Greater Toronto Area benchmark detached home prices peaked in April and have fallen 8 per cent since then. Home resales in the GTA have tumbled too, dropping 40 per cent in July compared with the same month last year. http://www.ctvnews.ca/mobile/canada/non-buyer-s-remorse-toronto-sellers-frustrate...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

If you're that old and the only solution you have for these high prices is Armageddon, then it's time to pack it in. You've lost your ability to be creative. Cognition ETB, cognition.  Re-read what I posted.  I specifically mentioned previous home price collapses which occurred without any accompan...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Lol I think I'm doing okay. Worth far more than I ever intended. Almost all homeowners In Vancouver are doing okay but, as a person who arrived late at the party, you are not doing nearly as well as the majority of Vancouver homeowners who arrived a lot earlier. Trust me, 1970's prices were much mo...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

People buy a home to live in. If you want to assess it as an investment that's your right. But it seems that those that take that approach are either renting, or severely under-housed living in tiny shoeboxes. So you have changed your mind again about a home also being an investment. I guess when p...

Re: New 10 year visas stoke housing booms in Vancouver, Toronto

Yeah cherry pickin That's a 250k gain for west Vancouver detached since January. Nice find man. So if somebody had bought detached property in September 2016 and sold in July 2017, how much would they have lost? Quite a lot by my calculations, and I'm not even including the huge transaction costs. ...
