Vancouver Real Estate Before and After

Where Were You

For any of us who read a newspaper, a blog, twittered, watched CNN, CBC, CTV or drew breath, the last few days were a new low in our history. It is almost impossible to not be aware that we have just experienced an unprecedented financial global meltdown.

Pundits, politicians and the guy on the street are all trying to figure out what tipped the bucket. Those same folks are now trying to figure out how to get it to stand up.

It’s massive, it’s pervasive and without question it will affect each and everyone of us in the Vancouver Real Estate world at every level.

Curiosity requires a review of how it may have affected the Vancouver West Side Real Estate market in the short term.
