You dummies (you know who you are) out there don’t get it do you.

I’ve been leading you along the right path, but still you question every move, every thought. Your weak.

This market is going tank, once the last of the idiotic 2.99% mortgage specials sucks in the last of the McLosins.

I stand by my prediction, ten percent off in a hurry, in a matter of months.

Suck it up McLosin (all of it, you’ve got to earn your twenty bucks)

Let us see what this does to sentiment. I was visiting one of my favorite haunts, the old olympic village, to see how the old dear was holding up. She’s seen three Vancouver winters now, you know. Well, the truth is, the O.V. is looking pretty green still. In fact green seems to be growing everywhere. Green slime. The stone clad buildings are the worst. Their surfaces are badly discoloured in many areas and mould seems to positively thrive. The metal clad are the next worse, looking a little streaky already and algae starting to take hold. Glass clad seems to be holding out best, but this is a double edged surface. Because the glass panels are raised an inch or so proud of the walls it is only a matter of time before the ooze works its way behind… Read more »

Details of OSFI’s draft guidelines:
Canadian Mortgage Trends just published a piece on the long list of proposed mortgage/HELOC changes detailed in the OSFI report.

The guys at CMT seem concerned/scared about the government tightening things up too fast.

It should prove to be a good read:

“Recent Vancouver condo quick sales not sign of what’s ahead” Van Sun, Mar 20/12

http://www.vancouversun.com/business/Recent+quick+sales+signs+what+ahead/6332820/story.html

“Susan Rutledge, vice-president of sales for Intracorp Realty, said Intracorp will likely start selling the 284 units at its latest Metrotown highrise, Silver, in April. “We have a huge database of people registered, both individuals and realtors.”

Notice she said ‘realtors’ are registered. So Silver will ‘sell out’. But then, what are those realtors going to do with their assignments? Are they registering on behalf of clients? Or will they then try to sell the assignments?

@Makaya: I like how they ended the letter with ‘yours very truly’…just in case they might have thought it was a joke…

@VMD: Its funny how the same concerns weren’t there when mortgage qualification rules were loosened at the same rate in 2006-2008. Oh that’s right, tightening them isn’t good for business.
