वैंकूवर अचल संपत्ति: बुलबुला है या नहीं?

द्वारा प्रस्तुत दिसंबर को 6, 2010 – 1:58 शाम2 टिप्पणियाँ

Anyone who’s been think­ing about relo­cat­ing to Vancouver — or any­one try­ing to find a place to live in B.C.‘s largest city — can’t help but won­der about local real estate prices.

The cur­rent aver­age price for a house in met­ro­pol­i­tan Vancouver is nearly $800,000, मुताबिक के लिए ग्रेटर वैंकूवर के रियल एस्टेट बोर्ड.

And if you’re hop­ing to live on Vancouver’s West Side, pre­pare to spend dou­ble that amount. Westside detached homes are now aver­ag­ing almost $1.7 लाख.

With prices this high, per­haps it’s not sur­pris­ing that a recent ग्लोब & मेल arti­cle won­dered, "Is Vancouver in a real estate bub­ble?"

Yet despite the head­line, the arti­cle gives rel­a­tively lit­tle space to real estate price trends and much more ink to the effect of over­seas buy­ers, par­tic­u­larly those from Asia, on Vancouver’s real estate mar­ket.

बेशक, Vancouver’s pop­u­lar­ity with wealthy Chinese investors isn’t news. The ग्लोब & मेल piece acknowl­edges as much and argues that:

The tor­rid affair between east­ern Asia and Vancouver real estate, now in its third decade, is actu­ally a love tri­an­gle from which each party derives very dif­fer­ent things.

When wealthy Chinese immi­grants buy prop­erty in Vancouver — and they utterly dom­i­nate the top end of the mar­ket — they’re actu­ally buy­ing a form of insur­ance.

What the fed­eral and provin­cial gov­ern­ments get out of these newly minted Canadians turns out to be a mod­ern form of the infa­mous head tax that was imposed on Chinese migrants in the 19th century.

And what Vancouver gets is an econ­omy that boasts a lot of froth, and not much substance.

के बाद से Vancouver is con­sis­tently ranked among the best places in the world to live, per­haps it’s not sur­pris­ing, as the ग्लोब arti­cle says, that “Vancouver is pop­u­lar as a lifestyle des­ti­na­tion for those who can afford it — not as a place to make a liv­ing. More ambi­tious immi­grants, Asian and oth­er­wise, are more likely to choose टोरंटो."

वास्तव में, British Columbia (which essen­tially means Greater Vancouver) receives about 15% of all Canadian immi­grants, जो, given its pop­u­la­tion, is only slightly more than its pro­por­tional share.

On the other hand, it gets about half of the annual 10,000 or so peo­ple who can prove they are already wealthy and there­fore eli­gi­ble for eas­ier, if more expen­sive, rides in the entre­pre­neur और investor classes. And the rest of Vancouver’s 15% share fits a dis­tinctly dif­fer­ent pro­file than do immi­grants to places like Toronto and Montreal: more skilled and bet­ter edu­cated, and much less likely to arrive as refugees.

Perhaps Vancouver is becom­ing such a cool place to live that — as in other high-​​priced cities like New York or Paris — peo­ple will squeeze into ever-​​tinier spaces to live the “Vancouver lifestyle."

तुम्हें क्या लगता है? Is the Vancouver real estate mar­ket in a “bub­ble” that’s going to burst?

या will Vancouver con­tinue to be a wildly pop­u­lar place to live, regard­less of the hous­ing costs?

Com जाहिर छोड़ दो और हमें पता है. और please post tips for new­com­ers to Vancouver who are look­ing for an afford­able place to live! धन्यवाद.

UPDATE: के अनुसार RE/​MAX Housing Market Outlook 2011, res­i­den­tial home prices are expected to climb fur­ther across Canada in the com­ing year. Addi की, "Markets in British Columbia are fore­cast to lead the coun­try in terms of per­cent­age increases in sales activ­ity next year, with Greater Vancouver expected to climb 10 per cent…” Bubble or not?

  • James कहते हैं:

    Vancouver real estate prices are depen­dent on Canada’s terms of trade and those are deter­mined largely by com­mod­ity and energy prices. I believe, and I may well be wrong, that China will at some point in the next few years expe­ri­ence a seri­ous eco­nomic slow­down as a result of their own over invest­ment in con­struc­tion and res­i­den­tial real estate sim­i­lar to what hap­pened in S.E. Asia prior to the Asian finan­cial cri­sis of 1997. If this were to hap­pen it would trig­ger a major defla­tion of com­mod­ity prices and have very seri­ous detri­men­tal effects on Canada’s terms of trade. Incomes would fall and the abil­ity to finance already stretch lev­els of per­sonal debt would start to crack. वैंकूवर, already too depen­dent on real estate would be on a roller coaster ride down with ser­vere impli­ca­tions for already inflated prices and the local economy.
