Re: Market Check May 8 2013

Isn't it a little early for the market to cool off In the FV the market cooled off in March. The year started well but didn't last long. I thought it was maybe the upcoming election that was slowing things down, but now that doesn't seem as being the problem. Well, we are and have been in a correct...

Re: CTV declares liberal majority.

Re: Bears...please come out of the woods ....

Anyways, I'm calling it again..... a 25-35% correction in GVRD prices over the next several years.
I don't think so. If the NDP manages to win, it will be one term. 5% to 10% correction max.

Re: Market Check May 8 2013

Purely anecdotal.... no documenation necessary. i heard that it has slowed down real good. :P What is this, beginning of May only and there is a noticeable quietness. :mrgreen: Yes it has slowed down... bear ily moving. It must be the NDP being ahead in the polls. More fast ferries on the horizon.

Re: Assessment Value vs Offer price

I wouldn't rely too much on the assessed value, as it isn't necessarily indicative of market value as of the current date. Look back at similar properties that have sold within the last 3 months and adjust for differences in characteristics and location influences to get a better feel for what the ...
