Why or What

You have to ask who or what is driving these prices to continued new highs? Is it:

House Picture Prices Rising
  • Chinese Lunar New Year predictions associated with the Year of the Horse?
  • RBC’s proclamation of higher interest rates?
  • staking claims to citizenship before the closing of the Investor Immigration program
  • Vancouver is the most beautiful place in the world?
  • Vancouver is the new ‘gated community’ for the world’s wealthiest people?
  • almost free medical services?
  • B.C. is SuperNatural?

It’s a place where some of the world’s most distinguished criminals are welcomed with open arms ; they can move in a feel right at home and become part of the privilege few who can enjoy a society devoid of culture with seven months of rain..

I am in shock when I see this. I thought once we hit the million dollar price mark, there will be a mental barrier for many to pull the trigger. Guess I was wrong..up another $300k since.

Meh, Bitcoin had a better run. You can give thanks to central banks and governments, but remember enjoy the benefits before the consequences catch up to you.

At this point you would have to be financially illiterate to cheer on higher house prices.

That is absolutely insane. If I saw this as a stock price, I would be selling now.
