Re: New price predictions thread.

Situation is fragile. Stock markets stalled. Tech stocks vastly overvalued. American banking stocks undervalued. Economic growth waffle. Brazil and India struggling. C$ rallying. Don't need a shock like Brexit or Trump presidency That would really mess with financial confidence. At this stage of th...

Re: False Creek is Vancouver’s best neighbourhood

Lynn Valley?? Is that some sort of joke?
Nice homes. Have you been out there lately?
I guess I couldn't see the because of the constant torrential rain. It is the wettest neighbourhood

Re: Predictions for 2016

The gap in price between east side and west side will continue to close. Is it already closing? I agree that when the market falls the gap will probably close but I wasn't aware the price drops were already starting in those two areas. Here's an interesting prediction from The Province newspaper ab...

Re: BC Assessment early notice for 2016

Basically BCA got caught in an insane market and prices were nuts. The fever of land speculation is palpable. Look at it this way. Paying more taxes means you earned more money. Right? Haha, if only that were true... I'm not going to lose sleep over a few hundred more in property taxes, and I can c...

Re: Eastside Townhouse sold for over 1 million

Where in the east side was it located. I know that half duplexes near me are going for 1 mill but a townhouse seems nuts

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

My point seems to have been missed again. I love Vancouver! For me it is probably the best place to spend my last years, but then I'm not a young professional with bright career prospects but little chance of buying a SFH in a good neighbourhood. I'm no appologist for all the warts on the USA, I do...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Geyser. Don't cherry pick your comments. You indicated that young Canadians shouldn't buy in Vancouver but instead move to the US for a third of the costs of buying a house. I pointed out that this is not an option for the vast majority. You agreed with me in your last post. Therefore your post was ...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

"Geyser" The difference is that my local realestate holdings were purchased a very long time ago at much lower prices. Young couples today do not have that option. You were lucky enough to get in before the lot value of your run down old Eastside house shot up in value. If you were shopping today y...
