Fish is back!

Hi Friends.

Hope you are all well. After a health related hiatus from the blogging scene, I decided to drop in again with the occasional post.

I had been blogging on the imminent demise of RE, both here, in the US and world-wide for about two years and well what can I say...we made it! We are into the worst of it in the US, and well on the way here.

I suspect some of you old bears will be coming out of hibernation and wondering IF and WHEN you should be buying. That is going to be the new focus of my blog;

1) How much further down do we have to go.
2) What 'deals' are there out there - mortgages, property, etc
3) What is the buying/renting comparison now.
4) What is the BC economy going to look like in the next two years.

On a personal note, I want to thank Paul B for all the hard work he put into his numbers which led us from the lunacy of the bubble to the promised land of a buyer's market. He will be missed, but I wish him all success in PEI.

Mohican has been pounding out his usual high quality posts (I will get all the links up soon) and of course there are some must read blogs..Like Rob Chipman's and Solipsist's.

I want us to exchange some solid information on how things are likely too shape up.

It's good to be back.


  1. Depending on what time I get home tonight, I will post on a foreclosure case and the Spring thaw in housing sales as well a cpuple of astounding price reductions.

  2. Glad to see you back fish.

    Hope your health related concerns are dealt with.

  3. Good to have you back! Real estate porn lives on :)

    Hope you are felling better.


  4. Good to see you back in action Fish.

    I will take a look at the numbers in your latest post.

  5. Welcome back, Fish! What a wonderful surprise. I like your focus for the blog. We're definitely in need of as much information as possible with the dead cat bounce and all this talk of 'green shoots'!

  6. Glad to have you back!

    Lots of room left for good posts on the way down! :)
