Buy a float plane or helicopter with floats. He have a doctor here who does cancer research. Lives on Long Lake and fly's his helicopter everyday to work on the Fraser river. Better yet find a job in Nanaimo or some other place on the Island.

Plenty of people live on the islands and commute to Vancouver.. Bowen, Sunshine coast etc. Much like people commuting from Bainbridge Island to Seattle. Most people go to work and leave the family with larger space..

Personal choices.

buy when there's blood on the street.
"buy when there's blood on the street" sounds like a very easy approach. How do you define this?

Just at the moment when you believe it's time to invest, even worse crash may yet to come. I am not saying you're wrong, it's easy to say "buy" if you have tons of spare cash enough to buy the whole property without mortgage (usually when bloods are on street, interest rate is usually sky rocket), and not to worry about getting layoff.

I think you have to realize investments always have risk, and some people are just not good investors. Perhaps real estate is not a bad tool to build asset for their retirement.

I doubt at that point it has anything to do with the cost savings. It has to do with his preference of living there. For someone with a "normal" job, buying a fucking helicopter to commute isn't really in the cards.

Layoff the crack pipe. Typical Yaletown yipster living paycheck to paycheck with a ' I'm so smart I barely work like you peons' mentality.
Next time you take a pot shot at surrey remember your nothing more than 14$ baller v2.0
Obviously you can't argue facts or logic.

You make it sound like owning a place is the #1 thing in life... I have great friends, an awesome lifestyle and I'm happy as fuck!


If you're who I think you are, go back to listening to Tom Leykis and hiring prostitutes because no woman ever wants your company!

Dude you're a basement dweller with 0 friends and you hate women. Your life is a nightmare of angst and loneliness.


My girlfriend just left and now I'm happy as hell to be home on a Friday night, free and comfortable to work on my 2nd book!

Another beautiful day renting in Vancouver...








After tossing the ball around for awhile, we cleaned up a bunch of the litter left by the local ghouls. We picked up probably like 50 shitty cigarette butts, 10+ cigarette wrappers, tons of those gross "snackables" processed, non-organic cheese packs. I bet the cows that cheese comes from aren't even grass-fed or free range.


I digress.


So many guys like Nomomo own property in this city but would never lift a finger to make their community nicer or more friendly. I go out of my way to make people feel welcome and have made a bunch of really good friends in Gastown. A lot of people who own property here are completely disconnected from their neighbors and live here simply to feel relevant in a trendy neighborhood. Walking around down here it is impossible to not have a friendly conversation with a neighbor, friendly crackhead, pretty girl or fellow hipster if you're a friendly person yourself.

A lot of property owners view renters like me as peasants who can't afford to buy in their neighborhood, fakers who are "paycheck to paycheck" because we do not have traditional assets. I've seen this attitude over and over again downtown, and many social groups are divided along renter/owner lines. What I'd like people to understand is that your time and your fulfillment of life can be more important than a mortgage. You're lead to believe that the crescendo of being an adult is land ownership, and that if you do not own your home you are somehow not an adult. This is false and can limit people's personal growth due to the time and money needed to purchase land/property rather than seeking out life experiences. What people may lack in financial assets they can make up for in cultural, social and experience assets; these assets can be just as valuable as property.

Cultural ties, social connections and life experience can provide a deeper sense of fulfillment than just financial success. It is something that took me years to learn. Many people aren't even aware of their own depression and the crushing loneliness they can't quite put their finger on. Many of those people can only find connection with others when drunk, on coke and banging.

You can have all the money in the world, but it doesn't count for jack shit if you're miserable and nobody loves you!

Kind of off topic, but does anyone know how these "hotel" investments work out?
Is it really just a timeshare in disguise?

People are paying over million for a tear down. You can buy a house on the lake for under a mill. Now you have like 800K left over for a plane or a helicopter.

it's an extremely simplistic view of being a contrarian.

What it means is buy things that are unpopular, sell things that are popular.

right now, don't buy real estate. if you were to buy real estate it would have been in the US 3 years ago, or would be perhaps some areas of Europe today.

canada? who knows when the right time will be, but it will be when it's not the leading news story on global
