Long Dry Walk

Yet another record price for a Vancouver single detached house renders the idea of affordability equal to that of kicking a pebble in the desert. You might as well talk about dust!

Now more than ever fewer people will ever own a home in this city. For them the single family market place is a dry, hot, harsh place whose horizon is barren of hope.

Noticing some stale listings and asking prices that seem a little hopeful- mirage or real?

SFH avg. price from graph is $1,442,296 , but in your table it’s $1,397,953. Typo in table?

now long retired there used to be an agent on the west side who would price everything $100K to $200K higher than any reasoned evaluation. Nobody could understand why she would do that. It didn’t make sense until you understood that she took only one year listings and that in time the market would catch up and she was a hero. As to your observation: “it may be a mirage today but real tomorrow”.
That is Tweetable!

This dramatic rise in the market has nothing to do with BC’s local economy, in many cases the local economy is declining.

The price rise is directly related to Foreign (not local) Chinese Investors dumping their money out of China as fast as they can.

If the Canadian politicians cared about their constituents in the slightest way, they would be doing what other more intelligent countries are doing, and limit Foreign Real Estate Investment. However they are either ignorant or liking the “donations” or profit margins on their own investments and don’t want to change a thing, despite turning Vancouver into a deserted wasteland.

As many professionals wake up, we will find a further shortage of doctors, engineers, teachers, and other useful professions (lawyers and accountants will always hover over a carcass to pick it clean, lol) in shortage. With them leaving, so will startups and businesses that need professionals and can no longer find them due to the ridiculous living expenses. Vancouver will be owned by Foreign Investors with most of the places vacant and unkept.
Also…good luck finding a good restaurant when minimum wage causes someone to live in Hope.
