The Real Estate Agent Bubble.

Does this stat surprise you?

About 1 in 245 Canadians over 19 is a Real Estate Agent.

We have almost as many people in the country selling real estate as we have building it.

This according to an article in the Financial Post

Royal LePage chief executive Phil Soper blames this increase on what he calls ‘speculative’ agents.

“This is a real regional story. If you look at Quebec, where they took a different approach to licensing and professionalism by increasing the length of time and difficulty to get your licence, their ranks have shrunk,”

So who’s out there getting their real estate license?  Sounds like this is the easy path to riches and as long as we get enough churn in the market there should be plenty of commissions to go around, right?

The Real Estate Agent Bubble.


This video made me sick. I’ve heard of similar practices of luxury vehicles parking around the corner from food banks in Vancouver/Richmond.



Anyone have any pictures of Asian kids peeing? Haven’t seen one of those in several hours. This is a condo blog FFS lets stick to the topic. Asian hatred.



Face it, you can’t afford it a house and you are bitter. So you want to blame somebody, somebody who you aren’t afraid to spew your hate on without worrying about repurcussions. Class small man syndrome I would say…

Well said Space. These losers will never figure it out. What pathetic lives these people must lead. I’m glad the only place I run into such losers and racists in on VCI.

You’re right, I should have tried to find a better study as an example, and admittedly there are few good studies on these things, it very well may be that its mostly quackery.

Here’s a double blind, randomised, placebo controlled multicenter study showing that Chinese Medicine had statistically significant reduction in diabetes progression in the trial group of prediabetes patients versus placebo. The measurements were taken with oral glucose tolerance tests, which require sampling blood. I believe this should satisfy much of your criteria, including sample size (n=420) trial duration (1 year), and non-subjective measurements.

The above was reviewed and accepted by the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. I’m not sure if its a quack journal.


Crabman look again. For starters, anything that BPOM or OV post.

“Stop confusing our dislike of the communist Chinese (and the real effects their actions are having on our lives) with racism.”

If they immigrate to Canada, at what point to they stop becoming Communist? What you are really saying is, I don’t like Chinese people.

Passive aggressive is what us Canadians do best.


I have yet to see a post here that complains about people of Asian descent. And I can guarantee if there were one, it would be voted down in no time.

Stop confusing our dislike of the communist Chinese (and the real effects their actions are having on our lives) with racism.


No, but I do own property 🙂

Bull! Bull! Bull!

If you guys are going to be racist, just admit it.
Don’t go and hide behind all these passive aggressive posts.

At least we all know BPOM is a bonafide racist.

Bull! Bull! Bull!

>My lack of logic fallacies or simply your inability to possibly see faults within in yourself while being super busy pointing out any and all real or imagined faults with others??

i think you’re asking a question, but i’m not sure what it is.


@Bear Vancouverite #127

Traditional Chinese Medicine was invented by Chairman Mao in the 1950s:

The study you link to is typical of the field (and yes I read/skimmed the whole full-text article) – unblinded treatment groups and the only benefit was observed in a subjective measure (coughing severity) not the other measures.

It’s quackery, just like naturopathy, acupuncture and homeopathy. wut? is correct that the government shouldn’t be funding it in any way.

Brilliant voice over.

Bull! Bull! Bull!

>Agreed. Look at all the posts today. The biggest news of today, truly effecting our real estate market, is posted by southseacompany #101. Yet it gets one thumbs up.

>The reality is beyond the grasp of many on this blog.

#69 posted the exact same link as southseacompany
#60 posted a different link talking about the exact same mortage product.

tell us more about grasping reality.



It isn’t today’s news – it was already discussed further up in this thread – which is perhaps why it got just one thumb up.


@126 space889

I am chinese. My family (grandparents) had their properties seized and were tortured by the communist. They eventually escape to Canada for a better life. And now the many of the communist who had tortured and stolen from my family are coming here to buy million homes with their illicit money.
