Re: TREB vs Competition Bureau on Real Estate Data (sold pri

Ok I am confused so the sold data isn't a privacy issue now because you are giving it out willy nilly? Maybe get your story straight.

How to get money out of china

I liked the one where they buy 400K watches. I guess you could probably get that past customs. Makes more sense then a suitcase of cash.

Re: TREB vs Competition Bureau on Real Estate Data (sold pri

Yeah, right. No monopoly. That's why TREB isn't working so hard to keep sold data out of the hands of the public. Gee!

Re: the new west side

I love the evolution here. We've gone from chinese aren't buying up vancouver RE, to we don't know who's buying the RE, and now it's chinese are buying it, but that's OK.

Re: TREB vs Competition Bureau on Real Estate Data (sold pri

"As for solds, the information, ONCE IT HAS COMPLETED, is available publically." It should be available for free and easily searchable, not just 'available'. This, btw, is what I was talking about when I said it's not a privacy issue. Not sure what you are talking about. Are you saying there is info...

Re: Mark my words .. RE will drop between now and post elect

Re: Mark my words .. RE will drop between now and post elect

Interest rates are going up, CAD currency will rise, and RE prices will drop.
Long form census will return showing issues with foreign RE investment which will be curbed.

Mark my words, RE prices will drop 10% in next 10 months.
