“The Loneliest sight in the world” – The house across from us in East Pt. Grey, 2 blocks from the beach on a 50 x 120 lot is up for sale. It has been for a month. Today they had an open house. I was able to watch from my living room…… not one person came. A few Porsche Cayenne’s flashed by and slowed down a bit, but NO ONE stopped. 18 months ago 2 houses at the end of our block both sold for $500K over asking…that’s ask $1.9mil and get the first person in a long line-up, to offer $2.4 mil. I am watching the sad and lonely realtor sitting in his mercedes looking quite forlorn.”

“I like taking a walk around Point Grey and Kits at about 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday afternoons just to see the rather forlorn Used-House Salesmen pack up the open house signs and drive off in their expensive cars. Never have I seen them so depressed and never have I seen so many “For Sale” signs stay up for so long in this part of Vancouver.”
