Not only does it not exist OUTSIDE the article it doesn't exist IN the article. But it's really irrelevant anyhow whether it's 1st or 2nd (only relevant to show your state of mind I suppose). The price of renting commercial real estate in a small district in New Delhi has literally as little relevance as you can get to the price of buying residential real estate in Vancouver while still being in the general "Real Estate" field.As such it and you are completely without merit here.

Thumb:From YOUR article."A survey of global market rents has put Delhi’s CBD in the second place as far as expensive office spaces are concerned."The quotes that you mention not only don't appear anywhere on that page they don't appear ANYWHERE ON THE INTERNET!!!(afaict) I googled them and came up blank.Dementia buddy, get a doctor's appointment. Perhaps you should be checked for Schizophrenia too, you seem to be seeing things that simply aren't there.

One more,Fifth you're actually providing a perfect example of what is wrong with Vancouver. Notice in your example the rent/month to purchase cost is 144, this is a nice healthy number. Most places in Vancouver are around 300-350. Why is our purchase cost (in the popular downtown areas) nearly the same while rents are less than half? I'm sure even YOU can spot the inconsistency there.

Oh man are you stupid. First off even the article you linked to said it's SECOND place not first. Secondly nobody here really refers to commercial space, you have to specify if you're going off on such a tangent.Third it's only a small DISTRICT of ND that's that expensive.Fourth $1,000 per sq foot is what some of the more posh developments HERE charge. By comparison ND actually IS a world class city and it's only natural that the priciest districts there would be expensive.Do I need to go on with this crap? Satv you have a mind like swiss cheese you should really look at getting tested for dementia. I'm not kidding or just being mean, you really have mental capability issues unless you're just faking the whole stupid thing as some have suggested. You remind me a LOT of… Read more »

No Drachen,First of all, I goes most expensive did not provide you number.Secondly-Those places are more expensive because of affordability ratio you need a 140 month of income to pay monthly compare to rupee value against$$'s.Third is dust in you guys brain's "A CRASH' does not mean that a homes can be purchased without money"explain that to every one one the board include micheal GOLD.Fourth,I am not intended to disscuss issue that goes beyond Vancouver but just for your satisfaction here is what I got for you.Connaught Place and surrounding locations, office rentals have gone up by 90% to 150% and stand at Rs 284 per sq.ft. The capital values for office space in this area have seen a rise of nearly 145 % as compared to last year and it stands at Rs 40,870 sq.ft. The vacancy rate in… Read more »

I think you both are confused between risk and chance. Living a life is risk. You are reinventing financial theory. Check for yourself:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Risk#In_finance"In finance, risk is the probability that an investment's actual return will be different than expected. This includes the possibility of losing some or all of the original investment. It is usually measured by calculating the standard deviation of the historical returns or average returns of a specific investment"More of the same for the rest of your post. You totally fail to grasp that expectations are priced into stocks. Deviations from expectations are a random walk except for those who possess insider info (illegal) or for the blessed few who can "outguess" the market.With all due respect, you are making a mockery of basic financial analysis. So much so, that I don't think we will have any common… Read more »

The worst radio stations on EarthOne only has to open Winamp to realize just how utterly culturally and musically deprived Vancouver really is.

I think you are misunderstanding Patriotz explanation of "risk". Risk does not mean risk of losses. Risk is symmetrical. If you are expected to earn 12% with high risk, that really means that you could earn a lot LESS or a lot MORE than 12%. If your investment is expected to lose 12%, well then that is just a plain bad investment, risk or no risk.I said:I think you both are confused between risk and chance. Living a life is risk. Stock or Indy car racing are inherently risky. These pro drivers know how easily you can die driving at 150kph! But very few of them die, because they are smart and experienced enough not to take chances. But look at our BC young drivers on the less risky but more dangerous highways of our province. More of them are… Read more »

Thumbs Up, take an intro economics course. Population increase does not drive up real estate. If that's the case, China and India should have the highest real estate prices.

It always reminds me of 2 lane traffic in a traffic jam. The guy who’s always switching to the faster lane inevitably falls behind the person who chooses 1 lane and sticks with it.

Actually there are studies that show that you will end up marginally ahead of the “stay in one lane car” by always switching to the fastest moving lane. Same is generally true for momentum traders but much more difficult to put into practice.

I think that the reason most investors who go short don't do very well is that to REALLY make money you have to buy when it's still going down and sell when it's still going up. That's VERY hard to do. Look at Thumbs, his investment is going up so he's in total denial that it's peaked. If he were realistic he'd be selling now, but it's human nature to hold on to an appreciating asset and sell a depreciating one, even if that means you're always late to the party.It always reminds me of 2 lane traffic in a traffic jam. The guy who's always switching to the faster lane inevitably falls behind the person who chooses 1 lane and sticks with it.

Thumpsup said… “There is lots to lose in stock market and nothing to lose in real estate”. Not really; you can lose everything in both, including your teeth (remember that story?) Freako said…Fact is that there are only a handful of people in the world who can beat the equities market in the long run. …The risk lies in investor’s laziness and trust of the corporate entity. Here’s strong support for Freako in this interesting article on the random movements of stocks and the con artistes of Wall Street: evolution of an investor Sure turns upside down the popular theory about support and resistance levels in stock (or property) price movements. Self-fulfilling prophecy seem more pertinent! Maybe johnnyrent is correct……the only thing that has to change is psychology, being as this is the primary driver of extremes in prices and… Read more »

Vanman,Somehow you forget to mention population growth,demand for more housing.Issue is to decide how many more houses can be built and in what area,people who drive luxuary cars in what area they would like to park. lets talk about airplane,what does that cost to own and what it takes to travel in it. if the airline does not find sufficient passenger to run their company airplane cost won’t come down. I mean when there is sky rocketing construction cost is in the making of houses or airplane, prices won’t be down. the least can happen is developer can stop construction unless the buyer shows up again,which simply means price won’t come down that easly. when there is a limted space and more people are coming in to dewell. considering the fact that mortgage rates then and now,employement rates then and… Read more »

Risk is everywhere. There is no such thing as a guarantee that you won't loose money. Even a loonie right now sitting on top of my table is loosing its value as we speak! It's called inflation.I think you are misunderstanding Patriotz explanation of "risk". Risk does not mean risk of losses. Risk is symmetrical. If you are expected to earn 12% with high risk, that really means that you could earn a lot LESS or a lot MORE than 12%. If your investment is expected to lose 12%, well then that is just a plain bad investment, risk or no risk.Anyone with an grade 8 algebra or lower can reach a balance sheet!!! I mean, it's all add and subtraction for crying out loud.You seem to think very little of market efficiency. Fact is that there are only a… Read more »
