Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

I can smell an 'investor' from a mile away. There are different solutions to the problem. Your kids would be better off if the market gave back 30% and cruised for the next 10 years. A tale of two cities.  :!: I wouldnt mind that, but dipshits will still complain. Sadly it wont happen because the C...

Re: What must the governments do to stop speculation?

Ok as a bear I assume you never owned property before. You can absolutely walk away anytime, its called breach of contract. You lose your deposit.  You can lose a whole lot more than just your deposit. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/developer-sues-condo-pre-sale-buyers-for-abandonin...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

So what's the true market if its not real sales data? Is it whether you can afford to buy or not? Lol It clearly isn't the cherry picked sales you post. Luckily I bought years ago.  Jokes on your though - you can't afford to buy at these prices either.   Luckily , you bought years ago also - even t...

Awesome chart!

And some people actually think the market is going up.  How naive of them.  Probably just peddling properties to unsuspecting first time buyers so they can make their overblown commission.

Re: What must the governments do to stop speculation?

Sorry - I don't think you understand how presales work.  It is a contract - you have to buy at a future date.  You don't have an option to buy and if the market goes down walk away.

You clearly don't understand what I am trying to say and vice versa.
