Bear vs. Bull in the Battle of Vancouver

Haven’t you always wanted to see housing market data presented as an exciting battle map?

Somewhat more exciting than your average excel sheet, VMD has started a Battle of Vancouver thread over at Vancouverpeak.com where he’s got maps showing the ups and downs of the market for condos and single family homes.

It’s interesting that you really get a sense of things changing on the periphery first.

There’s a stripe of red in the centre where prices are still up year over year. Here’s the map for Single Family Homes:

There’s a similar thing happening in Condo prices, although more areas are Year over Year negative there.  Oh, and for extra excitement on this map there’s TANKS! (each tank represents a single percent point up or down):

Tried to use the invite code p3k0-icze-u2up.

Copied it into the field so there was definitely no typos. But doesn’t work.

Just an FYI.

Why do you need an ‘invite’ code anyways? Why can’t you just join?

@Vote Down The Facts: Initiative 502 WA. 95% State tax!

http://sos.wa.gov/_assets/elections/initiatives/i502.pdf

Very interesting tax scheme. 25% tax on each of growers, processors, and retailers. Each requires a specific license for the activity.

1.25 * 1.25 * 1.25 = 1.953

It might be possible to cheat one tax but unlikely all three. The initiative designers must have also figured out the value added by criminal production and distribution exceeded 48% of final consumer cost to settle on the 95% number.

@Saint Patrick:

there was a day – about 50 years ago

when corporate taxes were the equivalent of personal income taxes today (as percentage of income?)

and income taxes were as low as corporate taxes are today

i don’t have the stats, i just think that’s bullshit.

@Reality Bull!:

you wouldn’t call us racist

if we weren’t calling you out on your shady bullshit

and sucking our social services dry so born-in-Canada Canadians can’t benefit

i speak a little chinese; i’ve lost track of how many conversations i’ve overheard that contain some mention of ‘look at that hen gao wai-guo-ren’ or ‘zhongguo zui hao guo’ or whining about Canada and Canadians. to be honest it makes me sick; and they are as racist as the British were at the turn of the century. we’re all racist; just that some of us realize when we’re being dicks. we’re all the same talking monkey, just separated by thousands of years and thousands of miles.

the myth of national exceptionalism is alive and well with these people, just like the british, germans, and americans before them.

but i’m biased – RULE BRITANNIA

“M” is a completely brainwashed zombie. So happy to pay all those taxes and get nothing in return. We are taxed to death!!!!! And it’s “M”orons like him that assist in the raping of the Canadian people.

Do you have any idea how much revenue is generated from “gas tax”? More than enough to pay for the roads.
“Property tax” more than enough to pay for the police and water.
“Corporate tax” pays for health care and military.

“Personal income tax” pays the interest on what it costs to have the bank of Canada lend us our own money.

Fucking brainwashed fools. No wonder Canada is being given away

@Reality Check: “So One application can bring in many people.”

Very interesting. Though, keep in mind, this would all be within the roughly quarter million a year. It just means that even a greater percentage of that will be family reunification immigrants.

@ More Data Please..

There are 25,000 applications under the parent/grandparent stream that are going to be fully processed this year. 25,000 next.

What this means?

Having being familiar with these applications (South Asian descent), I can tell you one application includes parents, grandparents, and any number of brothers/sisters under the age of 18 (or 25 if still going to school). So One application can bring in many people. Seen it first hand.

Note that press releases always confuse (purposely?) applications with immigrants! Also, when a 25 year old skilled immigrant comes here…he/she goes marries overseas and the spouse begins this process.

Immigration primarily benefits Large Corporations and Real estate industry (Banks, etc.)…

Note that Real estate took off in 1986 … directly coinciding with a huge increase in immigration numbers by Mulroney.

CSPAN has the Prez, Congress and Senate results flashing quite quickly along with %’s in. With mute on, it is quite pleasent compared to the bloviating gasbags on the MSM channels blubbering their idiot opinions.

@Laibach: I generally don’t post because I can’t/won’t buy property; but I have a deep interest in how others are dealing with this financial distortion and how it will effect generations. Everyone is barking up the wrong tree about ‘racism’. I’ve pointed this out to friends (or anyone willing to listen), this isn’t about foreigners taking advantage. Our government handlers are following the globalist agenda – that is; trash the social fabric while enriching themselves. You can’t blame individuals that are opportunistic (most people are) but eventually you have to look at the game plan and who is enabling this to happen. (Meanwhile we put the boots to some poor sap trying to survive as a part time tutor, or some schmuck renting out their basement for cash). We have lost the plot when we start fighting amongst ourselves. It… Read more »

You should rewrite as:Corrupt Cheena officials,because they are No more a Communist entity,indeed they never were;they are just a bunch of elite Cheenamen who have created the most corrupt social system in human history.

@patriotz:

If this person is only working part time @ $25/hour, I doubt she’d have much tax liability in the first place, especially given that student loan interest is tax deductible.

I think you kid needs a smarter tutor.

That’s a big if. The OP only stated that the tutor cannot find full-time work. Maybe her part time work as a teacher along with the tutoring puts her income into a taxable position.

@victoria: “math tutor. A recent graduate who cannot find a full-time teaching job is tutoring a few high school kids a week to pay off student loans and bills. Well she didn’t declare the $25 a session tutoring and the tax man got a hold of her.” I’m going to have to side with Patriotz and others in this case– if your daughter’s math tutor is earning $25/session by tutoring, then she can tutor for about 10 sessions a week without incurring a single penny in tax liability. Even more if you consider that her tuition fees are tax-deductible. If she earns enough via tutoring that she’d owe any taxes, then, well, fair’s fair, and she ought to pay taxes like everybody else. I declare all my income, and I pay a high tax rate as a result. I’m fine… Read more »

@Laibach: Scape goating in times of economic difficulty is common in white culture. One just has to look at history.

“Where do you think “all that racism” came from? How it came all of a sudden if we were so nice and polite before?”

Two wrongs don’t make a right. They should’ve declared the income. simple as that.

@painted turtle:

Where do you think “all that racism” came from? How it came all of a sudden if we were so nice and polite before? Who forced the way in with the money toward economic, cultural and language ghettoization? Who brought some odd customs and rules that suddenly we all had to accept? Who arrogantly took advantage of the social and economic system while insidiously laughed behind luxurious cars and homes on the rest of us who still had to contribute and support this country? Who do you think is becoming a slave and hostage in their own country because numerous Nuevo Riches decided to create their safe heaven while squeamishly despised those who let them in?
