Re: Olympic village - not a desirable area to buy anymore!

Aren't you glad that you didn't buy? :mrgreen:

Or, are you buying cheap after spreading the bad news? :roll:
I like the area..

FYI i noticed that red lantern like to bash the Olympic Village quite often for some reason. :oops:

Re: I see prices dropping

No, MR Picky, I'm not changing my tune. I can see two homes listed for under 700k. One has no basement, the other is a fixer but I still think that's very good deal. Fixers were going for more not that long ago. http://www.realtor.ca/propertyDetails.aspx?propertyId=13563739&PidKey=796806788 Pender ...

Re: I see prices dropping

Re: Vancouver mayor sells home, exits at top of bubble! Sell

he exited his home at the top of a bubble to buy another home? That doesn't sound bearish to me. Even if the media twists stories around, how much of him not buying another house could be "twisted"? Its either he bought or didn't, right? Which hedge funds are shorting Vancouver real estate and Vanco...

Re: Realtor Present to Achieve Commissions

Good catch.. I was not aware of this. A townhouse I previously owned that sold a few years back was sold without my realtor at the showing but he still got full commission. I wonder if its too late to bring this up..?? but the question comes who would be entitled to the commission then?

Re: I saw new sold signs... yup

Saw a couple of big sales in North Burnaby the last couple of days. Absolute head-scratchers. New build (I don't love it - but that's just taste) sold for north of $1.4M on a 33 foot lot. Which is $200K greater than the next best one :shock: :shock: Another one was a 20 year old home that sold for ...
