Hi Larry,

I think you are right, the good places are selling…but sales gvrd wide appear to be off close to 70% this month…vs. same 30 day period last year.

Amazing times we live in.

not sure if last year is relevant anymore. it’s kinda of like saying ‘when i was 21’

Larry, does the ‘when I was 21’ analogy hold for Last year’s prices too?

Sure! I remember when you could buy a buy 5 bedroom house in Shaughnessy for under $100,000. That would stand as a historical landmark. To Junius’ point, I do question if it has significant comparative value beyond that relative to today’s market. IMO to say we are 70% down from last year does to my mind ‘bears’ (pun intended) a noted agenda. As a counterpoint, the market is way up compared to 1976.

Was down at Spanish Bank West on the weekend at the off-leash park. I think that’s one rare part of the city that hasn’t changed significantly in at least 40 years. Worth a walk to see the open field and large planted trees overlooking the Salish Sea and English Bay.

When the pace of change of the City starts getting me down, I return there for a quiet moment of respite, regardless the weather.

Love the pix. Keep it up.
