Zillow coming to Canada!

Do you remember 10 years and 6 days ago when David Gibbons from Zillow commented on this site that they intended to expand internationally and Canada was definately on the shortlist?

Well Zillow is coming to Canada, sort of.

Looks like they’ll just be showing the same listings as the MLS – dare we hope for an independent source of long term statistics like price history?

Complete and utter racism!

If these people where white it would be investigated as a hate crime.

It’s pretty clear that this is racism, my spitting mad Sino-Friend.

“It’s pretty clear that this is racism”

I wouldn’t call it racism because no candidate is entitled to anyone’s vote and the voters have the right to vote as they choose for any reason they want. I would call it ethnic politics, which is something I don’t approve of, although it’s been around since before Confederation. I would include the current leader of the NDP who won by appealing to his own ethnic group in that.

Voters may have the right to choose any candidate they want for whatever reason they want, but anyone who encourages them to vote based on race is simply racist.

Also, by encouraging them to vote only for chinese candidates, they are effectively telling them not to vote for someone who is white, Indian, etc…which is hate speech.

Sorry all you leftist idiots out there, these are your own definitions. You made this shit up so perhaps you should be careful what you wish for.

Lets just get rid of the word racism. We will call it “ethnic immigration”. That is where we can choose who immigrates to this country. Shouldn’t we have the right to choose who we want to live here the same as someone can choose who to vote for?

Of course we do. But “we” isn’t “you”.

That is why we need to get rid of Horgan and Trudeau. Thanks for making my point.

And replace them with these guys, I presume.

I would replace them with the Peoples Party of Canada. All I know is we have to get rid of this guy:

How about this:

“These are the values of the Chinese Canadian community and they are also Conservative values.” The Conservatives have more candidates of Chinese origin than any other federal party, Harper said, listing off people running for election in Vancouver, around Toronto, Ottawa, Windsor, Ont. and Quebec.

You don’t actually believe that BS do you?

The values of the Chinese Canadian community? They all have similar values? That’s like saying white candidates represent they values of white Canadians.

Nice spin leftie.

“You don’t actually believe that BS do you? …They all have similar values?”

Of course not. I don’t think Harper himself believed it. He was just making a pitch for Chinese to vote Conservative simply because they were Chinese, but he had to dress it up in terms of values.

So you’re backing away from the “hate crime” claim then? Feel free to move the goalposts wherever you see fit. You clearly need the advantage.

Nope! I still fully back that this is a hate crime against the white politicans, my spitting mad Sino-Friend.

Weird, you’ve shifted your stance again. Before you said “if these were people were white it would be investigated as a hate crime”, and now you’re saying it’s already a hate crime?

Lodge a complaint if you feel that’s the case. But of course you won’t.

I’d happily lodge a compliant against you but the Canadian system does not investigate hate crimes committed by Chinese Nationalists living in China.

Numbers are about what I’d expect. In all likelihood the winner for mayor, whoever it is, will get less than 40% of the vote. I haven’t been able to find the last time this happened.

Along with inventory, the Oracle panic index is also on a notable rise. Don’t bother responding, O. I’ll do that for you below.

“The price of a typical condo is a little cheaper in Greater Vancouver. REBGV reported a benchmark price of $687,300 in September, down 1.17% from the month before. ”

“Condo sales are falling across Greater Vancouver. REBGV reported 812 sales in September, down 20.78% compared to the month before. When compared to the same month last year, sales are down 44.03%. Both the monthly and annual decline are way larger than expected.”

“REBGV reported 2,417 new listings in September, up 39% from the month before.When compared to the same month last year, new listings were 10.92% higher. The rise in new listings helped to push new inventory to highs we haven’t quite seen in some time.”

But I heard here a few days ago that only 20 + yr old junk with $500 a month strata payments is for sale!

That was referring to condos priced at under $1 million. Yes that is pretty much the case.

Here is what $1 million gets you in Vancouver. A 53 year old dump with no view on the third floor. Maintenance fee is $549 per month.

In suite laundry? You are going to need more than a million. But who cares we have 13000 inventory. All must be good.

“Here is what $1 million gets you in Vancouver. ”

I agree it’s overpriced, but that’s one of the most expensive locations in the whole city. Also it’s an equity co-op (condos weren’t around when it was built) and there ought to be a discount for that compared to a real condo. Note the single assessment for the whole building:

Oh no! Another 200+ day of listings and a sub 100 sales.

Nice uptick in total inventory. 14,000 is in sight before month end when ‘sellers will simply take their properties off the market until prices recover’

Thanks again Paul for the stats. I clicked on your site to see your listings and noticed you have a $17 million dollar co-op penthouse listed. Co-op?!? With $2k a month strata? That building has to be 40 years old? What is the economic life left? 20?

If they spent $3 mil on the outside they spent $2.6 mil too much. For $17 mil I would at least expect a hot tub LOL!

This place is worth no more than $5 million even in this insane city!

They are only asking $6300 a square foot. Seems fair to me. The building is made out of gold bullion isn’t it?

Yes – thank you Paul. As a quick statistical update – we are on track to have the highest inventory change (seasonal basis) for October ever. We are currently on-track to have an increase in 900 units, compared to the norm. Historically, inventory falls around 900 units from September through October. However, this month, we are on track to actually be flat and possibly increase. If we have an increase, it will be the first increase from September to October in recent history. This is primarily a measure of motivated sellers. Net listings are around 25% higher than the norm and sales are around 15% below the norm. We are on track for a 30% decrease in sales again. However, October is seasonally a bit better than September was. You could say we have taken a small bounce up from… Read more »
