Amazing how many contortions pelpoe can go through to try to evade the central issue.Yields on Vancouver RE are grossly subpar. That means that, barring continued price appreciation, owners of Vancouver RE will lose money. Continued appreciation requires an exponentially increasing amount of investment at subpar yields. And nobody, repeat nobody, has come up with a scenario where rents can rise enough so that yields can become competitive again.Meanwhile the supply continues unabated. When the last fool buys, it's all over. Just like in every other bubble market.It's not different here.
