“Regarding anecdotal evidence for empty properties: I have been watching this one since last summer. [2667 Claymore Place, Burnaby. 3950sqft SFH on 7150sqft lot.] It has been empty and listed for sale since then. I know that HAM bought it in 2006. I don’t know how many pairs of hands it has been through between then and now. It was listed at $935,000 when I first noticed it last August. It has had 8s in every revised price ever since. Now asking $868,000. A perfectly usable house sits unused for a year.”
