I fought off the bear trolls from 2008 to 2015. I can certainly fight off a couple of bull trolls.
FYI of the newbies, I joined the forum as a bear in 2007-8. In late 2008, I flipped to be a buyer. Purchased my two-bed on Marinaside Crescent in March 2009. Spoke bullish for 6 years.
In autumn of 2015, I contacted a realtor. She wanted me to sell then. I said spring 2016.
So, we sell in March 2016 for another $200k. Applause.
By a strange coincidence, I started the Should The Government Intervene thread ... When?
After I sold the apartment, other owners in the building went wild. The unit above mine listed for +$100k. Guess it didn't sell. Last month, that unit listed for $20k below my transacted price.
I'm told that it sold above listing. No problem. Still in the same ball park.
Don't worry about me. I bought a one-bed pre-sale near Queen Elizabeth Park in autumn of 2015. Grasp! Walk through this summer.
Anyway, I don't need any more money. I'm preparing to exit. I'm worried about the kids. There's always some newbie buying at the top. BTW did you catch the latest news. Rrump is flexing his muscles.
He's going to change the game. He'll either be a hero or a big dummy. Stay tuned.
Read this post from Jimtan. Take a moment to digest what he wrote. Only bought into a apartment in 2009, drives a E550 and has diamond status in Aeroplan "allegedly"
He contacted a real estate agent in autumn of 2015, but told the realtor to hold out for March of 2016. Claims he made a extra $200,000 in 6 months on a condo.
