Is it a good time to buy a hobby farm, out in the sticks (Canada)? My elderly parents were wondering.

"Many observers at the time realized that too many houses were being built, homeprices were rising too quickly and lending standards were being dangerously compromised in fueling the bubble."

LMAO... that's not how I remembered it. All I heard was buy, buy, and buy another one. Rewrite history much?

vodka and zerohedge Friday night is not the ideal way to prep for the weekend...unless you were about to buy a house. Because Fed is so confident in the economy that they said they will have ZIRP for next 2 years.

I believe the correct quote is:

"Now is a good time to buy, or sell a home."

Thank you David Lereah...

Looking at S.W Ontario. Land prices are pretty steep: $700,000 for 10 acre crop farm. I don't know if that is a "bubble" or not...

SW Ontario land is pretty rich (in a farmland type of way).

Read The Hunger Games, a book for teenagers about what totalitarian government does when insurrectionist/secessionist regions stop sending Caesar's share back to Rome.

Guess that depends if you have to drive to work and/or how far away your food actually has to travel.  Might want to avoid population centers for a while.

Amazingly, the bubble hasn't popped yet in Canada.  Buyer beware.

Google what you can buy in Vancouver BC for $1 million.  It's funny.

Actually it's popping as we speak... Some areas have gone cold and inventories are mushrooming. The prices really have not gone dawn yet cause sellers are waiting for the soft spot to pass (transitory) and are holding their price. Unless your a momo, know is the time to short that bitch.

  • The canadian government is ignoring high inflation so their precious real estate market doesn't explode.  The more I look at it the more I see that we are also screwed in Canada.  Keep those interest rates low dummies.  The bubble is now ginormous.  Vancouver, Then Calgary, Then Toronto.   The biggest bubbles will pop first. 

Ben Bernanke also has a part in this...  Canadian central bank had to keep interest rates low to "compete" with the global market.  lol  In this competition you want your currency at zero.  F-cken meatheads.  Ben Bernanke is like a retard hopping along in a potato sack, so what does Mark Carney do? (Canadian central banker)  He grabs a potato sack, has a 26'er or rye and decides to race the other retard Bernanke.  Don't they look smart.  Two retards hopping side by side in an open field with genuine dumb ass grins on their faces.  It's a thing of beauty.  The race to create the next bubble.  ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I kind of agree that there is a real estate bubble in Canada. But...I'm so happy to be back home. Canada is a large country with a small population with incredible resources. We will do well. Unless the US invades us because of all the arctic oil. Or Jamie Dimon wants to take his smackdown of Carney to the next level. Canadian investors aren't that smart and they are conservative. They didn't take risks via CDS so little exposure.

if you have to refer to canada as the sticks, chances are your attitude as well as your parents won't be welcome there for too long, you might want to try hobby farming in east LA instead

you'll go over great there.

How could anyone trust a bank for investment advice at this point? Rule of thumb, if a bank is selling, so should you-first if at all possible.

Yup.  10,000 baby boomers retiring every week (and probably wanting to sell their house to some schmuck), 85% of last year's college grads living with their parents, less people making $50K or more per year than there was in 1997!  Where is the greater fool going to come from to buy your house?  No household formation equals no demand.
