Fanciest empty homes around

 Kabloona pointed out this article about a vacant zombie neighborhood in West Van.

Nobody’s home except dust bunnies and racoons

In one of Canada’s most expensive neighbourhoods, in hilly West Vancouver, sits a row of seemingly abandoned mansions.

Not a single person can be found on the upper north side of Highview Place on a weekday midafternoon.

The Green Party has a lot of champaign socialists in their base. They own homes and have to pay this tax. They like taxes on other things like carbon, just not on their assets.

Yes, and Andrew also wants to prevent Alberta oil from getting shipped to markets other than the USA…letting the Americans dictate a low price for our energy that loses us an estimated $15 billion a year….

The tax should bee on the house assessed value, not on the land it sits on. By doing so, the people who are really living in their homes, who paid off their mortgages, are not being treated unfairly. Only rich ladies who wanted brand new houses after complete demolition should be paying substantial amount. An owner whose house is assessed at 100k because it is 50 or 100 yrs old should really not be paying anything extra.

Attorney General ‘interested’ in seizing homes bought with laundered money

“Eby admits he needs support from Ottawa to pursue suspected money launderers who may have already fled Canada.

“It involves other countries and other jurisdictions which is federal responsibility and this is connected to really problematic things like fentanyl. We need the federal government to be at the table to support us in this.”

Eby will make any excuse he can to ignore this problem and do nothing. The BC government has the ability and power to seize homes if they were purchased through the proceeds of crime. There is no support from Ottawa needed. The BC government has been seizing homes from drug dealers for over a decade.

This is one of those no-brainer policies that i don’t understand why a local politician would not champion. Federal and Provincial politicians tiptoe around on this type of issue – why? 99% of British Colombians would come out to watch and cheer as a Chinese money launderer’s home was seized by bailiffs. Where the possible downside for a politician?

You are assuming they want the money laundering to stop. Of course Chinese money is the cash cow that keeps on giving. The simple fact there is no foreign buyers tax on presales even though it was explicitly promised by Eby tells you everything you need to know. They want the illicit foreign capital to keep flowing no matter how much damage it creates. The NDP only wants tax revenue. Enough to balance the budget while carefully keeping the bubble inflated.

Any time public discourse in mainstream media (in this case, fairly pro-RE industry local media) looks like this “SFU criminologist Rob Gordon says it’s already fairly easy to seize property considered the ‘proceeds of crime.’

“That legislation is triggered when it’s difficult to undergo or undertake criminal prosecution. You want to nail somebody, but you don’t have enough evidence beyond a reasonable doubt to convict them. I’ve no doubt in my mind, if for no other reason than to maintain legitimacy, government is going to pursue these individuals quite aggressively.””

… people with skeletons in their closets start to soil their suits. This is not a problem. Lots of discussions like this will help, cooperation of the various levels of government and their agencies producing convictions and seizure help even more.

“How do they know where someone’s primary address is?”

Statistics Canada uses various administrative data sources to identify residency such as land titles, property assessment data, census of population, tax and Business Register data.

https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/daily-quotidien/171219/dq171219b-eng.htm

In brief, the government has to have some address for the property tax bill, right?

Chipmans blog suggests daily expires (until recently at least – he’s not updated for a couple of weeks) are single digits for the most part except on the first day of the month.

Interestingly, the stats he reports also mentions “tours” and “hot lists” – whatever they are.

yvr2zrh

This seems to be normal activity for the end of June. Many people remove listings for summer as they may be going away then they ten to relist in September. Compared to last year, we are down ~32% on daily sales and up 38% on inventory. MOI us double and the trend during June has continued to be deterioration – this means the market is worse than last year but continues to get worse on a month by month basis. We actually normally have net reductions in inventory going into the end of the month so this is already counter trend to have a slightly increasing number of listings.

Canada Prepares Steel Quotas, Tariffs On China To Prevent Dumping

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-06-26/canada-prepares-steel-quotas-tariffs-china-prevent-dumping

It’s not just the US that is locked in an escalating trade war with China: according to Bloomberg, Canada is also preparing steel quotas and tariffs targeting Beijing meant to prevent dumping of steel imports from global producers seeking to avoid U.S. tariffs.

Implicitly confirming that Trump was right to launch protectionist measures against China, and that others would have done it if they had the stomach to disturb the global trade order, the Canadian measures are said to be “a combination of quotas and tariffs aimed at certain countries including China” and follow similar “safeguard” measures being considered by the European Union aimed at warding off steel that might otherwise have been sent to the U.S.

Responding to a CNN question on China’s future policies to prevent the further inflow of synthetic drug fentanyl into North America, Liu detailed a list of domestic policies that he said Washington should adopt first, ranging from drug-prevention programs to better treatment for abusers. “The US should strengthen its crackdown on distributors, traffickers and drug-related criminal rings,” he added. “It should investigate and arrest more lawbreakers.” Liu told reporters that China accepts that some of the fentanyl is manufactured in… Read more »

“The Chinese agency promised to increase pressure on Chinese production of the substance after a U.S. Senate investigation earlier this year pointed fingers at China for increasing the opioid crisis across much of the country.”

And:

“We find it odd that the Trump administration and Senate investigators are diverting the attention of blame to the Chinese. Our government has turned a blind eye to the Sackler family through their family-owned drug company called Purdue Pharma, which has generated some thirty-five billion dollars in revenue from flooding America with opioids since 1995. This paragraph alone underlines how America is doomed.“

In fact, Purdue is being sued by 24 states right now:
