Everyone wants to pretend they are too popular, busy or partying to post on a blog over a long weekend. Oh well, I’ll be anonymouse too! Pope, expose everyone then have us sit on our hands until Wednesday.

@Anonymous: “Whistler will never go back to the glory years of the early 2000′s and it shows on the faces of every person who works in retail up there” Whistler continues to tank. It’s probably a good indicator of what’s in store for Vancouver: sticky price decline but inevitable slide. Lots of room for prices to drop a lot more in Whistler (just wait for Vancouver’s shellacking to get worse). Whistler had all the same bubble monikers as Vancouver: ‘everybody want’s to live there’, ‘there not making any more land – hemmed in by mountains – in spite of the fact that there were at least 75 ‘last developments in Whistler’, ‘prices only go up’, etc. etc. (Cam Good took a dump there). It’s all over. Buying in Whistler right now would be an even bigger mistake than buying in… Read more »

I was in Whistler for the long weekend and it was dead. Just gangs of 18 yr olds up for grad dining and dashing on their bills.

Whistler will never go back to the glory years of the early 2000’s and it shows on the faces of every person who works in retail up there. I never did actually see a realtor but there must be a few left.

@Anonymous: “Unless we have previous sales history or at least comparable sales history these price drops are really meaningless

Prices in the interior are coming down, I’m hearing reports of properties selling at prices they were 10 years ago (after adjusting for inflation). These are scant occurrences but that they’re happening at all is telling. Some people just want to GTFO. I’m not saying now is the time to buy but there are some sporadic sales that are relatively cheap compared to a few years ago (and none of them in Vancouver).

That house is worth 50k, maybe. There isn’t even any land that goes ith it.

@jesse: “That’s a mighty price drop…”

Yes but we really don’t know if they were just dreaming up that price in the first place. Unless we have previous sales history or at least comparable sales history these price drops are really meaningless. 239 K for a tear down 125 year old house on a busy highway in the middle of nowhere doesn’t sound cheap to me. The place may not have sold for today’s asking price back in 2007.

@ZRH2YVR: I saw no open houses in my neighbourhood. It makes sense because half the population was gone camping, I think. With so few cars on the road, it was a great day for biking 🙂

That’s a mighty price drop, in real terms even worse. There is significant distress out there, but few seem to want to talk about it. In some parts of the province the bust is entering the third quarter.

Given the really low number of postings yesterday on a sunny Saturday long weekend – – it goes to show that most of us actually have a life outside this blog!!! Then again, maybe we were all out at those busy open houses.

Thanks for the update on the Greenwood house. I’ve also been driving by this house for the past couple years and last weekend wondered how much it was currently selling for. It seems like most of the city of Greenwood is for sale.
