Don’t like the bubble? Move!

Local realtor / hype artist Cam Good is in the news again with some advice for people that are unhappy with the current market or think there’s some imbalance with current house prices: move somewhere else.

The video is also available on the Global News website. Hat tip to southseacompany for the link.

Remarkable timing, Pope/mortgagefree, we've just popped this up at VREAA: I suspect we've all been riveted by this clip/quote…

See here for stills and transcription, and brief opinion/comment.

Saved for the record:

Cam Good Offers Locals Little Sympathy – "If you don't want to live in a city that beautiful, with that much demand, then maybe you should live somewhere else. Either you want to live there or you don't."

"Either you want to live there or you don’t.”"

yes I want to live here
easy to do just be conservative
in your housing selection…….
and ignore talk radio, the local tv news
and newspaper inspired Kool aid……

realtors are a desperate grasping lot
and deserve to be ignored also…..

Living somewhere and buying RE somewhere are two different things.

Of course Cam like everyone else in the RE industry wants you to think they're not.

@blueskies, I assume from your post it was Cam Good who said “Either you want to live there or you don’t.”

There are a lot of different versions of this kind of turn of phrase such as, "Either you're with us or against us". "Either you're a man or a mouse". "Either you're in or you're in the way". You're either in my corner, or with the trolls". "You're either a necessary evil, or you're unnecessary".

I would guess that we have now just heard the umpteen millionth variation, if it's original at all.

Nothing more than a seemingly clever use of contrasts falsely presented as wisdom. Commonly spoken by (a) someone who wants to manipulate a fool, or (b) a fool who's being manipulated.

I don't know if its a good thing to give this a-hole so much attention. Keep in mind that few people watch the news anymore, and we may be helping him by spreading his bullshit further.

I think Cam Good is the guru of life choices for Vancouverites. Ask yourself whether you really do want to live in Vancouver. Are you beautiful enough for such a beautiful city? Are you rich enough for such a beautiful city? Perhaps you would would fit in better in a city where plain and middle-class people live. And for heaven's sake, if you are the least bit ugly and lower-class you should think about getting on a bus to Regina right away!

Please make Vancouver beautiful for the beautiful (and rich) people from the People's Republic of China. Go back to whatever ugly place you came from. You are an ugly, ugly person.

He said what most of us have known for awhile. If your not Asian, you're not wanted in Vancouver.

Cam Good is just trying to make a name for himself by being controversial. He is a shameless egotistical self-promotor. I do think this will end up exploding in his face.

A couple of things to balance the "Good effect":

– Nobody in Vancouver cares about real estate at the moment. This must be driving the Realwhores crazy. On the way home during one of the games, I stopped by a wine and beer store. Next to it, a sign on a realwhore office door said "Yes, we are open". 😛

– The numbers in the last couple weeks have been abyssmal for this time of year. Yesterday alone, the difference between new listings and sales was about 200.

Cam Good here

Get outta town ya losers.

Your mere presence depreciates property values

I will be renting a Hercules transport capable of parachuting in clients strapped in Lexus, Mercedes SUV's and the odd Hummer who will be ready to hit the pavement with offers

You had your chance to get rich……..now clear out.

Take your Residential Tenancy Act and shove it

It's Camcouver now baby…

( Can you please pass on my business cards ? )

Well done Cam Good.

So, your plan is to sell the city to the rich Chinese… Nice.

Do you realize that those poor idiots who are upset are also teachers, nurses, policemen and firefigthers? Is HAM ready to enjoy a beautiful city with empty schools, hospitals, and run by the mafia? Or do they choose Vancouver for its schools, hospitals and relative safety?

Do you have kids yourself? If so, can you guarantee they will be millionaires so they can stay in the lower mainland?

What an arrogant, uneducated, greedy brat!

Besides, the helicopter scam feels overcooked, and the Richmond buzz is fading (even Yatter Matters says so).

The fact that scum like Cam Good are successful in this town shows the true meaning of the "Canadian Dream"

No. ……. I am reading " Mein Kampf for realtors " Basement suite renters weaken the gene pool. They sit all day, blogging about the Canucks, not realizing Luongo is am agent for the Chinese Gov't to take attention away from HAM invasion. The series goes 7…Luongo has instructions, but then again he'd probably play like swiss cheese again on his own. More HAM invades while BC residents watch his overpaid retarded team. Teachers love HAM…the Asian HAM students study 25/8/366, skew the bell curve so the Teacher looks good…the Universties look good and can drive up tuition rates. ICBC is kept busy, keeps basement – suite renting tradesmen in beer , cheap and tacky Canucks uniform, and alimony payments. Why would anyone want to upset this " Final Sorution" for BC..its destiny, and I am but a minion to… Read more »

Cam Good is the biggest sellout to his country I have ever seen. If I were his mother/father/sister/brother/dog I would be ashamed that my son has no loyalty to his home. One day maybe I will run into this sellout and send him packing for good. Cam Good get out of town!

I've heard this line for a long time now "If you can't buy a house here, well maybe you'll just have to move up the valley." Every time they have a real estate "expert" on CBC radio, that's what they tell me. It enrages me every time. These "experts" never consider that a city needs regular people to operate effectively. We simply cannot have every single cashier, teacher, lab technician, nurse, library worker etc etc driving over the Port Mann to work every day. It's just nonsense. Besides, I don't need to BUY a house (as patriotz pointed out) to have a full life, I can rent (for cheaper). Let the rich foreigners buy the property and subsidize my rent! Why do I care? And when I'm done my working life, when the kids are gone, I will take my… Read more »

I have been in sales all my life and it is a noble profession which has afforded me an upper middle class lifestyle. As a recruiter and trainer of sales people I have seen the likes of Cam Good come and go.

He's a self promoter, lives his life in pursuit of "stuff" and his greatest fear is not being taken seriously. Had he hit the scene 10 years ago he would be a zillionaire by now. But arriving at the top of the bubble will likely damage him for years to come. Poor guy.

FFS. What an asshole. Clearly, the lunatics are running the asylum and there is no end in sight. I gotta get out of this city.

"He’s a self promoter"

Exactly, his slogan is "I don't care if they love me or hate me, just as long as they remember my name."

Cam Good here. No I had humble beginnings, I was born under the WoodWards sign during the Boxing Day sale. My dad was a lesbian longshoreman, and my mom was often in drag. I went to Van Tech, majored in license plate manufacturing, and graduated at the top of my grad class of one. One day,I saw a Tom Vu ad on TV while at the Cecil . Then a ray of light from the sky shone on me and I realized my calling…a boat driver for late night TV Infomercials. Tom Vu took me under his wing and introduced me to Ozzie Jurock , some guy named Tsur and Cam Muir. Bob Rennie was in the men's room saying he had to fix a hole in the cubicle wall The rest is history….every journey begins with the initial step… Read more »
