What to Make of It

Understanding this change in all things Detached Kitsilano, might best be explained as night terrors. Taking many forms, one might be VISA® bills arriving with the totals for the holiday spending spree. That all expense paid trip to Hawaii has a different tone when it’s your expense – oh happy day! Then again, another could be that the market could be melting as fast as the Olympic snow on Cypress Mountain.

Either way, it’s too early to suggest that real estate market drama is unfolding in Kitsilano. Fortunately, we will soon have the games afoot to help us forget thoughts of such woes. Who knows – by the time the games end, it’s entirely possible that we’ll discover that B.C. really is supernatural and with any luck, boarding competitors will find gold amongst the rocks of Cypress Mountain and begin a land rush unseen before. 🙂
