Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

The things that ETB are posting are facts. House x sold for this much over asking price at this date <- this is a fact. But you need to put things into context and do some statistical analysis. You can't post 10 examples and claim that you know what's going on in the market. There were 440 detached ...

Re: Should the government intervene?

Sane people know that healthy  communities are important.  :roll: intelligent people know when they're dealing with a troll, and stop feeding it... We should create a"tdma troll free thread" where everyone can have rational discussions about the real estate market.  He has taken over all of the thr...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Ok so its agreed that the price top was last year... So from 2008-2016 all the bears were morons? I don't understand, if you guys are so technically sound why were you not able to identify a hot market? You guys have been singing the same song this whole time, only difference is enough time has pas...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Reallyreal Vanbull etc Youre arguing for the sake of disagreement. When you buy your home let me know how ya did. That really is the bottom line. What argument are you talking about? Lol There is no argument here, just trying to explain to you the basic concept of markets. You say a lot of things t...

Re: Completion and Possession ish

I wonder what google translate is trying to communicate now?  LOL - like anybody has a clue what they are saying. Lol ikr. Pretty sad individuals here who have nothing better to do but troll all day everyday for years on end. It's quite obvious that some individuals are lonely and likely lacking at...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Did you see those houses buddy? And those were above asking prices of 1.3 1.4 and 1.69M - not 500k I made an exaggerated example because you seem to be struggling understanding the concept of what a market is. You asked the question "If the psychology of the market is negative, how does a buyer con...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

Im not posting over ask sales for that purpose. Look at the house and the sales price. Given what you see its pretty tough to argue the market is in a depression. Sure, there arent many detached buyers - but owners know that it the market is controlled by sellers, not buyers. Dont like the price? M...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

timing the market is one thing. Realizing that there is hysteria and the underlying fundamental landscape has changed and can no longer support the current prices is just being realistic. We're going to need another wave of foreign money to support these prices because locals sure are not going to d...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

I'm not saying "to the moon" no one believes that prices will shoot up forever. However as time and prices have gone up, reverting to the mean seems less and less likely. Things will continue to trend up and down however I think things will never "trade" and previous levels again as equity has buil...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

100k is a lot of money for you and I...i understand your point. My point...minus 100k is about the difference you'd expect seasonally. So where is the market crash? 100k? Is that it bud? Is that all the foreign buuer rules were able to bring the market down? Pretty paltry if you ask me. I Think the...
