I’ve had a request to turn off anonymous comments to fix the signal to noise ratio on this site, but for now I’m opting not to. I’m interested in both sides of the housing debate and I’d like to keep it easy to comment here.
The drawback is that we get some odd, possibly insulting and not well thought out comments. We see this from both sides of the debate, but I’m hoping for a sensible post about why our market is ‘worth it’ right now and not just incredibly overpriced. As long as the main argument in favor of buying right now is to ‘grow some balls’ and ‘move out of your mothers basement’ I’ll be steering clear of anything near ‘market value’ in the lower mainland. What you do is up to you.
I will keep an eye on the jerry springerfication factor and if the consensus among those of you that post reasonable well researched points is that easy comment posting just isn’t worth it, I’ll reconsider my position.
