With Vancouver RE prices now at the edge of the precipice, here are a few “Why throw your money away on rent?” quotes. They come from the comment section of ‘Tenant of green building sees red’ [The Province, 3 Oct 2010], which deals with the structural shortcomings of the Olympic Village. An OV renter is paying $2100 per month for a 888 sqft condo.
Note the mentality: Renting is wasting your money. Anybody who can afford to buy, should buy, no questions asked.
One imagines that, once the prices of units like this one are dropping at a rate of greater than $2100 per month, and keep doing so for years, these commenters will finally be able to do the math. – vreaa
