Unquestionably consider that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to bear in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as people consider concerns that they plainly do not recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , other folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

wow, from a housing article bubble we get; oil shorts, asian restaurants serving rat and questions regarding renting.

When an article is about places not to eat… All the comments are going to be about “The housing bubble”. lol

The commodity booms are over:

The wreckage caused by China’s great, juddering slowdown continues to spread far beyond the country’s shores. Although most commodities enjoyed a bounce on May 3, after better-than-expected U.S. employment data, the plunge in their prices over the past few months suggests the past decade’s rally is truly broken.

Garth was talking about Regina. His comment on ‘no bus’t was in reference to places in Canada where there was no bubble, so therefor, no bust. Read more than last paragraph.

This was supposed to sold out a long time ago.

I love how comment 49 whines and complains about ‘censorship’ based on reader comment rating and then some idiot called FATHER comes along and shows us why it’s vital. Can we get the comments buried at a lower number again? Maybe 5 downvotes? The conclusion I have come to after only a few brief visits is that you must fall in line with your peers for validity or be cast out and down-voted into oblivion. That is self defeating in my opinion and does not represent true democracy (unless mobs of one-dimensional sheep are considered to be democratic all of a sudden) and it does nothing to foster genuine debtates or discussion.

No open houses today but did go check out a house for rent (for under $2000/month!) in the west. Owner said they’d be there doing showings from 2:30-3, we got there at about 2:40. We were the only ones checking it out, surprisingly, given the price and location we thought for sure there would be hoards of people there. Not so. Nobody else came to see, we left just after 3. Very odd. Anyway, we’re not moving to the West, though it was decent house, so our search continues. Seems like asking rents are up this spring, at least in our target search area (a neighbourhood in East Van), not sure if these owners are just hoping for people who have to move this spring, but for now it looks like we won’t be going anywhere till the fall. Maybe… Read more »
