“I regret not buying into particular building a few years ago. Should definitely have taken the plunge then. Not out of the race just yet though.”

Fabien at RE Talks 11 Jan 2011 10:21 am“I regret not buying into particular building a few years ago. The place looked great and the price looked right for an assignment.
Unfortunately I believed, or rather allowed myself to be influenced, by some insanely doom laden BS on [RE Talks website] that was claiming on good authority that 75% – (yes 75%!) weren’t going to complete. Probably wasn’t even 3%, I certainly didn’t see any bargains after the completion.
The place is now one of the hippest places and arguably the most distinctive building for years. The area is also attracting a really eclectic mix of people from all over Canada and the world (particularly Europe it seems, few Aussies too, Taip..?!), also of course including the old traditional trend spots like Yaletown, West End, Robson.
Not out of the race just yet though so I’ll keep a watching brief on that one. Should definitely have taken the plunge then though, instead of spending time on [RE Talks] arguing that people were talking agenda-driven BS!”

  1. Why the regret?

    You made a decision to buy or not, based on the best available information you could get. (You don’t say, but I certainly hope you also used other sources of information than just that one blog!) Your decision might not – with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight – have been the correct one. (Hindsight is only useful in identifying errors and learning from them.)

    In the end, it was *you* who made that decision and *you* who owns the consequences that flow from it. Blaming the people who gave you advice implies that you let *them* make *your* decision for you. That sounds pretty childish, to me. Buck up, grow a pair, and man up. Learn from your actions, and move on with your life.
