Just BUY something already!

You on the fence! Yes you! Hop down and buy something already! Octobers numbers are in and they don’t look good. Its only a one or two percent price drop in most categories so it’s not too late to stop everything from sliding downhill if we work together.

We’re a couple of months into price drops for single family homes on the west side, so thats where we’ve got to act fast. If you’re a move-up buyer or someone with a hefty down payment its time to take that leap of faith. Buy a place on the west side with no subjects now and then put your house on the market – hey it’s worked out ok for some people, now is not the time for hesitation, now is the time for bold action.

First time buyers: If you don’t start doing your part we’re going to have a lot of move-up buyers stuck in a precarious situation. CMHC will insure a zero percent down payment mortgage so you don’t even need to have any money, just BUY SOMETHING!

Look, I know its expensive out there but thats the price you pay for living in paradise. Just make do with a little less and we can keep the bottom from dropping out of this market. If we’re going to prevent whats currently happening in the US its time for everybody to pitch in and do their part. Now get out there and BUY something!

What's a guy to do when the comments outshine the content? Maybe its time for me to pack it in.I don't think that the comments outshine the content. The sun shines, you get a tan, and people like the tan. Takes nothing away from the sun.Don't be packing it in, the fun is just starting!a lot of people were burned and will be looking for a safe solid place to invest in.Except all their money vanished, and Vancouver – with declining prices, more supply than demand, is not a safe, solid place to invest – in my humble opinion.

I think the income trust issue could be a boon to the real estate market – a lot of people were burned and will be looking for a safe solid place to invest in. Over the long term real estate has historically been a very good investment and the future for vancouver looks good.

Just wondering if the $ billions of income trust losses could have an effect on real estate investing.I'm not clear what effect that would have, particularly with vancouvers current market. Do you think it would have a positive or negative effect?

I agree. We must keep this economy moving.I've been thinking of putting 10% down on something, HELOC'ing it to get a Hummer, then flipping it in the spring – the house, not the Hummer. Well maybe both, because I see a path to riches ahead, and I'll just buy another Hummer.Hey, I have an idea. Start a flipping club! I'll flip to you, you can flip to Rob C., and so on. I will buy it back from him, and by that time it will be worth three times as much, and I'll buy a Maserati!Wheeee.
