Re: LePage Expects Vancouver Housing Correction in 2017

Sorry, I dont see that happening. If recent history has taught us anything, its that a lack of sales creates a backlog of demand.  Buyers have sat out the last 3 months...almost entirely. This pent up demand will most certainly halt the 2016 slide in prices. With record sales volume for 2016 - has ...

Re: How far can it drop? 20% or 30%?

again the tug of war. buyers want to buy at lower price, sellers may or may not want to sell. if the right price or buyer comes along then yes. if not, take the house off the market. this won't help supply There are always some sellers who aren't in a position to take the house off the market.

Re: Is it me or is the Westside getting creamed?

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd it begins.... 4137 W 13th Avenue - 33x122 sold for $2.9M ... purchased in March 2016 for $3.218M.  That's a loss of 318K in 6 short months for those of you scoring at home.  Nevermind the PPT of $60K on purchase and $77K on sale.   As usual - the realtor always wins. Ouch!  :shock:...

well exactly the sense of entitlement is the poor people thinking they can live and be like real "white" elite people. and when the lowly indians or chinese come, they feel very embarrassed and unhappy that such lowly people in comparison to the "white" is doing better as it contradicts what they'v...

My "red herring" research was intended to point out that hierachical structures of society are a normal evolutionary concept which have occurred in every corner of the planet and with most groups of mammals who coexist in packs, or tribes. Outsiders are often attacked and in the case of humans, the...

Re: How far can it drop? 20% or 30%?

I don't worry too much about others. We all have our own problems. I prefer to live in a society where the opportunities are reasonably widely available. I've stayed in nice private homes in 3rd world countries and spending my nights in a guarded, floodlit compound didn't appeal to me. Nor do I wan...

Re: Chinese people built Canada, They built Vancouver, It's what makes it Great

Now I think I understand your point, however, I think that in this day and age the term "white person" is generally used as a broad generic term to describe people of European ancestry. The whole concept of race is rendered absurd by the need to arbitrarily define numerous visible characteristics, t...

Re: Van detached house building costs

Harahomes:"So tell me, if you are so smart, why are the quality homes advertised as "Italian Built" or "European Built"?  I see some of the new homes built in Burnaby and wonder who would pay $3M for a home built without the badge of "Italian Built" or "European Built".  Crazy."

Re: Van detached house building costs

I don't think you know what it means.  When someone describes a "craftsmen"  house they are describing the style and look of the house not the skill level of the person who built it.  Just saying, might want to google it before you post it :roll: I agree with Harahomes on that one.  I also didn't r...
