I have never seen a year where so many people got it wrong in predicting a market crash in both the Vancouver Real Estate as well as the stock market. It proves that short term market predictions are a muggs game. Even when the odds are 90% in your favour you can still get it dead wrong. Instead just focus on the long term fundamentals 20-30-40 years of buying, holding and enjoying the home. This will always result in a positive return.
