Is Vancouver broken or just potentially broke? First off, Property Manager, Klaus Rode, joins us a month into the COVID-19 crisis to discuss the rental market. How many people are actually deferring their rent? Are rent prices in free fall? And how does an eviction moratorium impact our real estate market? And then, Adrian Crook and Rob McDowell join us to grade the City Council after its first 18 months. Spoiler alert: this report card might not make the fridge; in fact, one Councillor might even take to Zoom and flush it down the toilet. Today's episode is a triple threat! Stay home and listen up.
We discuss the start of the Fall market, the ongoing impacts of interest rates and inflation, the top areas for investment in the Lower Mainland and the province, and the type of thinking required to make lasting moves in real estate.
Back in action! Cory and Melissa have returned to the studio. This week we are joined by Jeff Hancock who specializes in land development and is joining us all the way from the William Wright Kelowna office.
