I don't like laneway houses though, they don't make much sense to me. Takes too long to get your money out (rent), would rather subdivide
Can work out better...You pay through the nose on the setbacks though.Often you need an extra lot just to satisfy the minimums. Keep in mind that even though the lots are smaller these days people want the bigger houses.
Laneway improves the efficiency of the footprint and provides the homeowner with some income that he/she will sorely need if interest rates climb. I was a huge fan of laneway housing when it was introduced to Murrayville (Langley) in the early 90s. Cant really comment on the Vancouver product though.(never saw any) The Murrayville model had wider laneways than the typical Vancouver lane I think....
The laneway houses put extra space on your lot to good use!

If I had a million dollars, I would buy the most cheapest house in the West Side, my bet is prices will keep going higher.
Were the undisputed Gold Capital of the world, Vancouver matches commodities not the stock markets, the 'general' stock market is a scam now with 2x short etfs, and derfivatives, but just watch the prices of commodities, if they go up, well go up.....
.... you are sharp. If you did it you would have done well. Hope you did it. :lol:

Good to see that Austin hasn't changed. What's happened to Jessie. I always said that he was the smartest of the bears.

BTW, where was Johnny at this time? As I recall, I was fighting the good fight (with a couple of others) in 2009. Whippy didn't show up till 2013 after it was all over!

blast from the past.

in the end we sold that house and bought a more expensive one on a better street. we're still thinking of getting an investment property, but now we're interested in condos. we can't afford another house.

Not very good at playing "spot the difference" are you? Particularly when there isn't one. :lol:

"Despite high house prices in Vancouver, CMHC said demand for housing there is buttressed by a growing population and gains in after-tax income, and classified Vancouver as a “low” risk market.
As for Toronto, it said the market was deemed “moderate” risk, with signs of overvaluation as income growth has failed to keep pace with the gain in house prices. At present, though, “we don’t see overbuilding in Toronto,” Mr. Duggan said."

It's good to see the CMHC people (who will get crushed and lose their jobs in a collapse) are telling us that it's not going to happen. My realtor told me the same thing. That's very reassuring. :lol:
