From the above noted link.

While Vancouver's price index continued to rise in February, Pinsonneault said that's unlikely to last. According to the city's real estate board, single-family home sales fell 39.4 per cent in February, from the same month a year earlier. The condo market is holding up only somewhat better, with sales down 7.1 per cent.

"Therefore home price pressures may fade out in that area over the next few months, even if for the moment the home resale market remains tight," Pinsonneault wrote in a client note Wednesday.

People that purchased a home last year in Vancouver, Toronto, and the Okanagan are now underwater on their mortgages. And the full force of the new taxes haven't even been absorbed yet.

Since this is an Okanagan thread, let’s talk about that......who in the central Okanagan is underwater on their mortgage from buying in 2017? Prices have still been rising, except in your tiny mind that doesn’t register facts. :135:

Hey "forum" show us where in Kelowna any home purchased in 2017 has a mortgage that is now underwater ? You shouldn't be allowed to print or say such a thing unless you can prove it ? Right now all I find is the exact opposite of what you say. I say you are full of BS !!

Guys don't mind forum... he doesn't know what "underwater" means. He likes to throw around words he doesn't understand. He regularly brings up this term and every time he does it's clear he doesn't understand real estate or how mortgages work.

This isn't the first time, nor will it be the last.

You also have to understand that in his world, falling prices are evidence of a crash... but so are rising prices. Falling sales volume is evidence of a crash... but so are rising sales numbers. Falling numbers home listings are evidence of a crash... but so are rising numbers.

To him, there's no such thing as a strong rising market, a market easing, a steady market, or a slight correction. To him the market only moves in one direction... crashing down... and every piece of evidence supports it. His reading comprehension and analytical skills are seriously lacking.

Just gently pat him on the head and give him his participation trophy.

With all the flooding, I hope Forum's room in his mum's basement isn't underwater.

Funny he will not answer a single question posed, just spouts off more BS like a *bleep* disturber in junior high.

Looks like the Mayor's of Kelowna and West Kelowna are having a little temper tantrum hissy pissy fit because the Provincial Government, you know...the real deal...took their candy away.

So what if the Okanagan economy crashes because of real estate fizzling out. The economy should have never been built on Real Estate, you twits. You can't keep selling overpriced houses to money launderers, drug dealers, Albertans, and naive rich people. It just never ends well.

well I'm certainly not buying that it will kill our economy..just the usual fear mongering imo...and if they get to keep those taxes, you watch how quiet they will all of a sudden become...

Every Sunday we go to open houses, and every Sunday I'm just amazed at prices.

Just for the hell of it, we stopped by a house in Wilden listed at $1.4M (which is double what I'm willing to pay).

Good god, never felt so out of place lol.

Looks like Kelowna and West Kelowna remain on the chopping block.

Good to hear.

NDP gaining mad street cred for sticking to their guns.

Feel sorry for Canadians that recently borrowed a bunch of money and spent it on an overpriced Canadian house.
