What should the 3 levels of gov do?

... Meanwhile costs in the city are skyrocketing for taxes, parking, user fees.   Development of empty social housing lots.  e.g. city owned lots in yaletown that have been empty for 20 years.  I would say open up the prime spots to market real estate and focus on social housing where its needed.  ...

Re: False Creek is Vancouver’s best neighbourhood

if you look closely, you'll see that all the neighbourhoods in the ranking are either Vancouver or North Van. North Burnaby is above such pitiful cries for attention.

I could probably live in Capilano, if I didn't work downtown. Yaletown is a yuppie wasteland with no personality, no thanks.

Re: False Creek is Vancouver’s best neighbourhood

When I moved the rankings to what was important to me, #1 was yaletown at 65%, followed by Capilano at 63%. Go figure, I would never consider living in yaletown.
So, how come you aren't living in Yaletown or Capilano?

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

... that's old news. plus the west side is slowly emptying out. where young professionals buy condos varies. I know some who have bought downtown/yaletown/olympic village. and others prefer to buy a house in the burbs or EV if they can afford it. A lot of talk about coquitlam/poco for homes too.

... aren't super rushed to sell. Actually, even if they are, there's no harm to DIY - because of the amount of $ you can save. (Assuming the 1 br+den yaletown condo is ~$500K @~1.5%...
