Re: Forum Members...

He found it necessary to start a thread to apologize - I wonder why? Clearly he disagrees with your above assessment.

I'm sure some people on the forum know why he isn't around anymore. Why the secrecy everyone?

Re: New price predictions thread.

I will take any wager for posters who want to bet against Vancouver detached property with std size or greater lot size

Re: Betameter - timing the market

Yep renters have options....just like when they calculated their "opportunity costs" of not buying when they could have. Sometimes it works (good timing) and sometimes it doesn't (bad timing). Now if it doesn't work, they then have to pay the "opportunity costs" of not buying. Hence they have less ...

Re: Are Laneway Houses worth it?

While I appreciate the breakdown it's not aligning with the way these builds often go from my experience. Here's a neat article on the fun that ensues once you start getting a little bit custom. Neighbours can require alterations. Construction can be delayed, unexpected costs crop up. Finish qualit...

Re: Vancouver indvidual property sales details

I wish they would look into rental units, lots and lots of illegal suits going on. I've seen a few that look very "home made" and I'm sure don't meet building code. If taxed properly could be a nice stream of revenue.

The total correction was 15%. There were posters calling the recovery a "dead cat bounce", "catch a falling...
