Record new car sales in June in Canada.

Let’s be honest here. The top 50% (who mostly are homeowners) are the ones benefiting from present gov policies. They are getting richer.

The bottom 50% are falling further behind and that’s where blogs like this come into play.

Again, record new car sales. Think about it.

@131 “Stash Pad – The NY real estate market is now the premier destination for wealthy foreigners with rubles, yuan, and dollars to hide”

The only problem with this statement is that real estate is the worst place to ‘hide’ money. Swiss bank accounts, gold bars, art or good old cash do not require registration with government entities which makes information on who owns it available to anyone. All that with it being the easiest asset to seize, impossible to move and one of the most illiquid to sell. People buy real estate because they think it is a good investment not because it hides or protects wealth. Quite the opposite.

Ted, you are embarrassing yourself. You sound like a jilted husband who just can’t leave the past behind. She’s gone, man…she’s shacked up with another. Get over it. Or get some professional help.

Zooming sales (yattermatters)….prices…not so much.

House of cards is looking ever more shaky. We all know the foundation is rotted to the core.

@131: “We agree that Vancouver is, at best, a tier-2 city, but its RE market bears a definite resemblance to an indisputable tier-1 city”

Heavy foreign buying in the luxury sector – yes.
Inflated prices in the other 95% which everyone blames on the 5% – no.

More reverberations from Rainforest Whisperer’s blog…

Commentary from South China Morning Post’s Ian Young…

Best line in the article: “Savvy consumers might be used to keeping an eye out for Chinese fakes – but fake Chinese?”

@ The Man

White kids will be our dope smoking tattooed dry-wallers…

What’s with the MSM obsession with cannabis in this town anyway? The smart asian (and white) kids don’t waste their time and money (and health) doing drugs of any kind.

@118 “I don’t think it’s so much that the asians are taking over, it’s that whitey is sliding down the evolutionary scale here. Asians kids are going to UBC to be our doctors, lawyers and engineers. White kids will be our dope smoking tattooed dry-wallers.”

Even scarier is the fact that after the bubble pops we won’t need so many dry-wallers. How will our kids afford their dope?

I bet we’ll see this nonsense soon in Vancouver…

Property developers in two of China’s weakest housing markets are offering to buy back homes above the purchase price to boost sales as demand slows.
