Lol.
There are no Russian buyers, the stats don't show it.
Where have we heard that before?

I didn't say there are "no Russian buyers" here, I was just letting you know that Canada is not amongst their top 30 choices of countries for buying real estate.

I didn't say there are no Fijians, Hungarians or Turks here either, but you might be out of luck if you are expecting those groups or even the Russians to keep the insanity going. Vancouver is barely on their radar and I can assure you that Russian oligarchs will not be looking for old houses on the East side. :lol:

BTW, I did ask you for your source of information regarding the wealthy crowds of Russians currently scooping up our real estate, but as expected no such source was provided, just unsubstantiated claims and more bluster.

not to worry geyser - ETB is pretty confident that immigration drives prices.... I am not sure why the REBGV isn't sponsoring more refugees to prop up the multi-million dollar valuations were currently see.
I heard a rumour that a lot of wealthy buyers from Somalia are headed this way! :lol:
