Re: Speculation tax ! Finally

This article nails it. The daft NDP has to stop attacking demand. We need more supply. Municipal approvals are way to slow. Their bottle neck is causing the price surges. The NDP  and Greens will kill real estate here and the economy.  https://biv.com/article/2018/03/foreigners-perspective-bc-budge...

Re: Is the boom over?

Hi SethM, glad to see you around!!
Seems like you still have an unsettled issue with ETB?  :D
Hi Thompson! Great to see you around! The only issue I have with ETB is the rudeness and arrogance. I was only replying to someone else calling out his rudeness.

Re: Is the boom over?

Looks like you're backing off your original comments. Someone has to check and balance  the bullshit posts that are seen here. I also see your reading comprehension has not increased in the last decade.  A correction has the potential to seriously impact buyers ability to renew their mortgages. Per...

Re: Speculation tax ! Finally

Squeeking wheels. Not sure anybody has too much sympathy for people that don't pay tax in BC with multiple properties with one sitting empty. I guess you didn't read the article or the Min of Finance Info sheet. I read it.   Like I said, I don't have sympathy for people that, like the article said,...

It must be bad when a weak bull crack like a rotten egg. Hope he didn't buy near the high.  :roll: Meanwhile, back on topic. Thousands of units will be returned to genuine renters.

Re: Why use metal cladding for the building exterior?

Hello RE experts. I've just moved into my new place and have a question. Part of the building exterior has metal panels. What is the advantage of the metal panels? Cost, durability? Rain screening? Doesn't the bolts rust etc? Thanks for your thoughts. Durable and easy to replace. FYI, the exterior ...

Re: Immigration has undoubtedly escalated housing prices in Vancouver, Toronto

Immigration is not the only factor in Vancouver's fantastic real estate market. The main factor is that it is awash in illicit capital. Immigration is great for Canada and educated and rich immigrants are the best kind. Criminals looking to wash and hide money here is the real concern.
