I used to buy Santa Cruz bikes. There's a reason why I switched to YT…
Some good info on here regarding the home owners grant.
There was a 15% decrease in downtown property prices 2008-2009. I know, because I was trying to sell. Luckily I didn't accept any lowball offers and ended up keeping the place.
It's amazing what a difference a year can make. If like you, I would have tried to sell a year earlier, then the place would have gone. I was trying to sell to fund chasing tail further south :)
I'm a SW guy, but interesting to see there are HW jobs up north in Prince George. How did that 3 year commitment work? If IBM fired the guy he would be paid the remaining term of the 3 year contract?
When I moved further east from downtown to the eastside almost 4 years ago I already thought house prices were ridiculous. I remember saying to my friend, "yes I'm buying another place, but no way are prices going to go higher". Wrong.
For people like us who like the outdoor pursuits it's starting to look a little ridiculous working 5 days a week when you could sell up and go mountain biking/skiing every day…
There is too much sense being made on this thread, you should throw sense and sensibility to the wind and buy the upcoming Alfa Romeo Stelvio - 500+HP of "I do what I want"
That's the one to get. They also have a lightweight 280hp version, but if you're going to get an SUV you need at least 300hp.
Vancouver being the best place to live in the world is the root cause of the low salaries - more skilled workers here than the local economy can support, which drives down wages.
That definitely used to be the case. Until Microsoft and Amazon came to town.
Nice to see someone with a truck with snow tires. You tend to see more trucks in the ditch on the road up to Cypress than little cars.
I run 19" tires during the summer, but 18" Blizzak's in the winter. Glad I've had them on for the last few weeks.
