Re: Are Laneway Houses worth it?

Honest response - yes. Don't feel bad. Most homes are cookie cutter that claim to be custom. Or to put it another way, what is special about hour homes? I guess you have very refined tastes. Lets just leave it at that. Thanks for your input. So there is nothing special about them? Good to know. LOL...

Re: Should the government intervene?

well - some might say that prices have been incredibly stupid for years. What did everyone call them? fawkers, bears, renters, etc. The bed is made, now we can all sleep in the same one :D We ain't building any more land in Vancouver so prices will only continue to increase. Might as well get used t...

Re: Should the government intervene?

Only Canadian citizens should be permitted to buy in cities of Vancouver and Toronto. Also, owners to declare income taxes in Canada. Anything less and this gong show will continue.

Re: Completed Listings

Is there a site that shows recent completed/sold listings?
bc assessment has it all in public view
recent like how recently all the buyers have disappeared?

and some dummy realtors are still trying to get bidding wars - they must be using BC assessment for their strategy LOL
