I'd say anyone born before 1975 still renting is hooped.

Just like some folks who bought at the "Greater Vancouver Average SFH benchmark" price peak in April 2012, or anybody who bought a Greater Vancouver average condo in 2007 in hopes of making a quick profit by selling in 2014.

Perhaps the market will go up some more and cover their carrying costs, or maybe the bearish pundits will be right and the market will crash. Who knows?

I guess if the market does return to its average long term growth pattern, as it always has in the past, then it's the recent buyers who will be hooped and the first time buyers will be dancing in the streets.

How did your open house go? Any bites?
In fond memory of Taipan, a model of modesty, decency, dignity and tolerance. Long may we all prosper from the tremendous legacy of worldly wisdom and specialized real estate knowledge which he left in the "Arguments" thread.

thats quite the generalization, and doesn't take into account the myriad of reasons that people might have for renting. Not being able to afford a house is only one reason...

Eyes:

So 39 yr + and still renting? I see what Eyes is saying. If you are buying in today's market, at today's prices, earning today's wages, with a modest down payment, .... It's gonna be a tough "go". Renting may be the way to go today, instead of buying. You need a huge down payment to make it work.

If you were born before 1965 and you are still renting, you are totally hooped. :shock:

Wealthy renters?....I somehow doubt it. :D

there is just an equally small percentage of wealthy homeowners.... few and far between.

do you consider yourself wealthy?

And of the wealthy homeowners out there, I am sure that most of them didn't acquire their wealth by being a homeowner. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
