Inventory up 214 in 2 days.

Was 13K the peak?

I’m sticking with my original answer.

Dude you are going complete nut bar over the minor fluctuation in inventory. We have been at around this level for months plus minus a few hundred. When we get towards 20,000 we will see a correction. 12K is still historically low. Especially when it seems 50% of those listings are land assembly or prices 20% above the last comparable sale.

The whole point of paying attention to inventory is because it’s a leading indicator of price declines…but we already have prices in free fall…so any continued growth in inventory is icing on the gravy. Still say we crack 14K before the end of October.

MOI is the better metric as it’s a leading indicator of rising inventory. And right now MOI for attached doesn’t indicate anything untoward at this point. For detached, however, it’s quite bearish if the current level is sustained for an extended period.

There has been a drop of 25 per cent in average home price and 22 per cent drop in median home price since the highs of 2017, according to Bonner.

“Detached, attached and apartments on the west side are now all experiencing price reductions and while this is creating good buying opportunities, buyers are holding off in anticipation of further declines,” Bonner wrote to clients in a note. “This will exacerbate the decline and soften prices further.”

The number of Vancouver condos for sale increased by a whopping 51% year over year. Despite the increase, inventory levels remain below historic norms, however, the quick jump in inventory combined with falling sales is a concerning trend. Expect condo inventory to swell in the coming months and even years ahead, as a record number of new construction apartments near completion. There are currently a record high 43,024 units under construction and a plethora of housing starts also underway. In other words, there’s a pipeline of supply coming and the demand might not be there to meet it.” http://vancitycondoguide.com/august-fewest-detached-home-sales/ August Sees Fewest Vancouver Detached Home Sales in 27 Years “Sales were even lower than August 2016, when home sales… Read more »

Pre-sale flippers are screwed.

They won’t be able to complete because of B20, they won’t be able to assign prior to completion and they’ll lose their deposit.

In addition the developer will sue them for the difference in price if they resell it at a lower price than what the flipper signed on for.

Oldie but goodie, to revisit how we ended up in the deep shit.

“Foreign ownership is, of course, the culprit. Beneficiaries of the property boom, homeowners, developers, and the politicians whom they finance, often claim that foreign ownership isn’t actually as big of a problem as we make it out to be. This category of people cherry pick misleading statistics propped up by biased stakeholders and lobbyists like real estate agent associations, and almost always has something to gain.”

“Economists cite tighter credit and unaffordable prices as the reason for the biggest fall in Sydney property prices for nine years. New figures this week show Sydney prices have fallen 5.6 per cent over the past year, while the national market fell 2 per cent.”

“This follows a similar pattern overseas, where property markets from London to Toronto are seeing price declines as central banks begin to unwind record-low interest rates, consumers balk at paying record high prices and regulators or banks impose tougher lending criteria on consumers.”

David Eby slams ‘colossal failure’ of money-laundering law enforcement during Ottawa appearance

“Real estate links:
Eby told the committee that money laundering in B.C. isn’t limited to casinos — there’s also strong evidence that illicit funds are being used to purchase real estate, helping to drive up housing prices.
As German writes in his interim recommendations, “It has been said that, ‘everything in B.C. comes back to real estate.'”

Eby was instrumental in convincing the Federal Liberals that there is a huge money laundering problem in Canada that needs to be addressed.

I’m not just referring to money laundering. I’m referring to the broad range of illegal money movement and transfers into Canada. It’s a poor excuse to say that if CRA takes a cut of the money, it’s not something they should go after. We’ve had a flood of billions of dollars into Canada through all sorts of sketchy means and a lot of that money has found it’s way into our real estate market. I’m sure they pay their municipal taxes, but a lot of sketchy stuff went on to get to that point. Does it make sense to you that owners of apartment buildings list ‘student’ as their profession?

Are you really that dumb? We are talking about people who flip houses claimed as principal residencies and pay no income or business taxes. They report it as income from a house sale which they then have the paper trail to back up – all tax free. They can then move the funds to anywhere in the world no questions asked. Or just buy more houses here no questions asked.

Vancouver short-term rental listings drop almost 50% as new rules take effect
Airbnb deactivates more than 2,400 listings in Vancouver

https://www.vancourier.com/real-estate/vancouver-short-term-rental-listings-drop-almost-50-as-new-rules-take-effect-1.23422574

Holm said staff has investigated more than 2,650 short-term rental listings to date and since Sept. 1, 294 new addresses have been flagged for non-compliance and are subject to enforcement.

She added that the city built a “sophisticated data analytics system to address the complexity of tracking and managing” short-term rental listings and the city is tracking all platforms using third-party data scraping.
“This week, we are starting enforcement and targeting unlicensed or invalid licenced online listings,” Holm said.

Fines can run up to $1,000 per offence. Holm said that could mean up to $1,000 per day, per platform.

The NDP were pretty clear their goal was a price drop.

https://vancouversun.com/news/politics/government-says-goal-of-budget-taxes-is-a-housing-price-drop

To this point, housing is still less affordable than it was when they took power. They moved too slowly on the housing file while prices were still appreciating. The NDP should have talked the market down the minute they took power, but they didn’t. They sat on the file for the better part of a year.

That said, they deserve some credit for taking action and they did it in a real way, not superficially as I was expecting.

My criticism going forward is that some of their measures should have been ‘temporary’ measures. Popping any asset bubble carries serious risks.

The big takeaway from that survey is only 6% want it increased, and yet no political parties talk against increasing it, like when the Liberals announced plans to increase it after some bogus special interest think tank proclaimed that we need to increase it, back a couple years ago. Plus, people are often afraid to say when being interviewed for fear of sounding xenophobic…so I’d say half of those saying they want to keep it the same really want it decreased.
