Here’s an interesting quote from Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Terry Lake about the economic benefits of hosting the winter games:
“Already we know that real-estate in Vancouver went up shortly after the Olympics from people that had visited the area,”
Is there a word missing here? Did buildings actually elevate into the air due to some anti-gravity effect that visitors had, or are we referring to a specific aspect of the real estate market.. Prices? Interest? Sales? Listings?
Yep, one of those went up.
