Forces Beyond Our Control


The question is the same – “will Vancouver’s prices ever take a break?” Though on the surface this might seem a glib response the answer is not until China has a revolution!

Admittedly, for a brief moment that position faltered as Briton decided to leave the EU. The moment passed with the realization that for the most part that revolution will deliver the greatest change to the Brits.

China’s influence prevails as the supreme economic force. China’s forward march like Napoleon Bonaparte’s will leave little in its previous state. Least of which – the price of real estate of Vancouver.

Great data, over the past 40 years the average compounded rate of increase has been around 10% per year!
It seams that China and the world is in a state of continous high pace change, making our relatively safe environs an attractive place for living and investment. The problem is locals have a are hard time adjusting to these outside influences.
