The Boom – Pop – Splat of Vancouver Real Estate’s Balloon

Boom – Pop – Splat

This Vancouver Realtor® was trying to figure out how to describe the sound of a Vancouver real estate balloon rapidly deflating. It’s problematic as it is difficult to settle on words sufficiently descriptive of the sound. Uncertain, it was decided to use all three words – they ring with acoustic drama!


Using information garnered from fundamental in home research based solely on the two latex balloons left over from a party, it was concluded that the type of bursting sound depends in part, on how much air or helium is in the balloon. Additionally, it was important to understand if a different sound resulted when using a pin to disrupt the membranes continuity as opposed to the exhilarating experience of sitting on the balloon while waiting for it to succumb to the pressure forced upon it by your body weight.

Real Science Rescue

It seems this Vancouver Realtor’s® science is all wrong! Fretting about the type of sound one could expect from a Vancouver real estate balloon popping is both misguided and misdirected!

Luckily the good folks over at ratehub have brought their mortgage science to my rescue.

Cool Fervor

With artistic fervor that is somewhat visually over whelming, the following Canadian global info-graphic suggests that the supposed and much anticipated Vancouver real estate balloon will not – regardless of my scientific experiment, result in any sound resembling a boom, pop or splat!

As well, we should forget about the much anticipated ‘crashing’ sound of Vancouver’s real estate market rapid deflation!

Instead they say, it’s just going to ‘cool’.

almost all canadian mortgages are subprime because they are only locked in for 5 year terms max. in the us, the rate is the same for the entire amortization period.
