My neighbor just sold his place for 1.35
Christ. What the living fuck is going on down there? Why havent you cashed out and retired Doyle?
You want regret? Here it is for you, my parents owned both sides of a duplex in Clearbrook in the late 80s. Dad got transferred to the NW and my mom didn’t want to deal with trying to sell property from a distance so they sold quickly. The made money yes but housing prices literally doubled 6 months later when the first boom happened. Ffs.

If my kids were done school I would bugger off to Peachland or Wetspank tomorrow. Four more years... puts me at 54 almost 55. Then I can start hitting the RRSPs. Sell both cribs and get the hell off the wet coast.

Dumpy old Tear downs in Lynn valley are hitting the market between $1.8 and $2 million and selling $200,000 to $300,000 over the asking with multiple offers, it’s insane. Go fucking figure

My 1st divorce had me sell my awesome lakefront place in osoyoos only to see it quadruple in value over the next 2 years.

I tried like a mutherfucker to buy her out but she had lawyered up and was trying to hammer me with "projected or prospective value" so i told her fuck you and i sold rather than throw cash at lawyers. I hate that cunt to this day because of it.

It’s considered a good investment town, on the up and up. The Okanagan is too expensive now, same with the Island

I recommend heading up before you entertain that idea. Smithers is far nicer but less amenities

This won’t last. As Covid gets eliminated more people will list and interest rates will rise as the economy opens up. Great time to sell. There will be a lot of bankrupt millennials in half a decade when they have to refinance their over-extended mortgages at normalized interest rates.

OK, Smithers it is. Chef is in. I can buy 4 houses for the price of my one in Lynn Valley. Just scanned Smithers real estate. I’m getting in the landlord business

It will level off but it shouldn’t crash. They can’t raise the rates too fast or there will be too many people who can’t afford to pay their mortgage. The rates will creep up very slowly.

The Okanagan and the Island aren’t expensive compared to the GVRD.

No just cheaper than here. I regret selling my share in the average at Deka. We made 15 K profit in 18 months and did nothing to it. My buddy bought a machine cleared the entire thing, dug out septic and well. He will end up making an easy 300 K when this is done. Prices are going crazy there now too. Our cabin should fetch at least 300. Not bad as we are into it for about 150. Bought in 2011.

I can find a real nice place in Peachland or Blind Bay for 900. I’d have to move to the Wack to find a place for 900
