西人百万富翁卖了$1.616 million房开始租房? 我看不懂了!
Sitting Out

This pair made a cool million in the housing market. Here’s why, for now, they’re back to renting

By Jim Sutherland


In 2002 Felicity Stone and Jim Patton stumbled onto the real-estatemother lode, trading up from a house in rural Langley to a thoughtfullydesigned home on two acres in the Elgin Chantrell area of South Surrey.Patton, a communications consultant, and Stone, who works in publicrelations, were happy to pour work and money into the place, expectingto live there the rest of their lives. Then their outlook began tochange. Much as they loved the 1962 gem, they also saw what nearbyproperty was selling for. In August 2007 they decided to list, and byNovember they’d accepted $1.616 million—a 240 percent increase from the$475,000 they’d paid a half-decade earlier. Now they’re renting a housein the Bayridge area of West Van, paying $2,500 a month while theywatch the market and wait for prices to drop.

Add two more people to Vancouver’s rapidly growing crowd of real-estatebears—those who believe that the price escalation of recent years isabout to be followed by an equally dramatic fall. On the various blogsand forums where the most committed spend many of their waking hours,the keening is almost palpable; news of price increases and condosellouts is met with denial and derision for the saps and speculatorswho make the travesty possible; gleeful celebration accompanies everyfaltering-market signal or news item detailing further distress inAmerican cities. Typical is this quote from Solipsist, on the Vancouver(Un)real Estate blog:

“The collapse of the U.S. dollar and economy, and perhaps U.S. society?They are going down, and we, and a good part of the world will be goingdown with them.” Or, as General Zod writes on a blog maintained bylocal realtor Rob Chipman: “Price cuts and more price cuts…Foreclosures spike. All downhill from there, baby.” Spend time lurkingin these dark places and you will become convinced that real estate, ifnot western civilization, is headed for the kind of vengeance and decayusually restricted to the Old Testament and William Gibson novels.

And indeed, there seems almost no way the bears can be wrong. In a citywhere fewer and fewer can afford to buy, and where investors complainthat rents don’t come close to covering expenses, how can a rise of themagnitude Vancouver has seen over the past six years not be followed byan imminent fall? Especially when other markets, not just in the U.S.but around the world and even next door in Alberta, are also fading? Adownturn seems inevitable—and this in a city where downturns have ahistory of being dramatic, if not catastrophic. Yet there’s still nohard evidence that a correction is under way or even around the corner.MLS statistics released in early February showed prices continuingtheir steady rise even as listings grew faster than sales (which isnormal early in the year). In this gradually slowing but still robustmarket, multiple offers remain common and some homes sell above askingeven as others endure price cuts or sit empty. In fact, the early daysof 2008 proved as strong as those of 2007, a year that produced the 15percent or so rise in average prices that seems to have becomeautomatic.

This was no surprise to economists—generally regarded on the bear blogsas shills for the real-estate industry but nevertheless guilty ofconsistently underestimating the growth in prices. Relying on hard datarather than quiverings in the gut, they’ve sheepishly forecast yetanother year of moderate increases. After all, the population continuesto grow, land remains scarce, construction costs escalate, andaffordability is actually improving, thanks to dropping interest rates.And wouldn’t you know it, despite all the bad news south of the border,Statistics Canada released figures in mid-February showing B.C.employment at a historic high.

So it’s not clear in what direction real estate is headed. What isclear is that dipping into the market requires extra vigilance.If—when?—real estate does plateau or drop, the strategies that haveworked well in recent years will need to be rethought or, in somecases, reversed.

★《惡靈古堡4:陰陽界》億萬名導 + 《阿凡達》全3D視效團隊不朽豪情經典,幕前幕後夢幻組合,3D特效大銀幕重現!

億萬名導保羅安德森採用《阿凡達》全3D虛擬攝影系統與美國太空總署鬼魅攝影機攝製《惡靈古堡4:陰陽界》,全球創下座賣佳績後,將再以這套最頂尖3D影像科技,將經典傳奇〈三劍客〉搬上銀幕,打造最潮、最炫的劍客,飛天遁地於觀眾眼前!製作出2011年度超級動作特技娛樂鉅獻!

為賦予法國文豪大仲馬筆下膾炙人口的豪情小說〈三劍客〉全新精神,這次的劇情將充滿諜報動作與機械工藝的祕密武器,宛如緊張刺激的古典豪華版007!透過一幅達文西生前所設計的飛船機密藍圖,成為英法兩國交戰前夕,一場諜報大戰的爭奪焦點,哪一方能率先搶得藍圖?就能掌握制空優勢的致勝先機,全片的3D立體影像,也將因為飛船的現身,而由地面上翻滾騰跳的鬥劍火駁,躍升為立體三度空間的雲端大戰!

故事描述地上最強的法蘭西皇家禁衛隊「三劍客」,意外地被惡毒的蛇蠍美人米拉迪(蜜拉喬娃薇琪 飾)及英國白金漢公爵(奧蘭多布魯飾)出賣,導致行動失敗,從此封劍歸隱。三年後,三人遇上隻身來到巴黎打天下的少年劍俠達太安(羅根勒曼 飾),四人因為同樣憎恨把持朝政的邪惡紅衣主敎黎塞留(克里斯多福瓦茲 飾)而惺惺相惜,遂結成一支神出鬼沒的劍客聨盟,執行懲惡鋤奸的祕密任務。

此時,一宗皇室醜聞,令英、法兩國之戰如箭在弦。除了為及時阻止黎塞留主教的篡國計劃,拯救人民免受戰火煎熬外,並向一搭一唱的白金漢公爵、米拉迪一雪前恥,三劍客決定與達太安執起寶劍勇闖英吉利海峽,一路從巴黎打到倫敦,從陸地打到天上,置身槍火劍雨間出生入死,展開連場鬥智鬥力大火拚!磅礴特技及火爆動作場面,加上幽默元素,媲美〈神鬼奇航〉的新一代豪俠傳奇,10月即將同步席捲全球!
