Vancouver Real Estate Market. The best place to read about the CRASH!

Vancouver Real Estate is going the way of our American friends. Inventory is WAY up, sales are WAY down and it looks like this will be heading in this direction for some time(5-8 years +/-).

The mainstream media won’t be reporting it as honestly as bloggers will, for one simple reason. They are biased due to the HUGE amount of spending that Real Estate Agents spend on ads. They last thing they want to see is what they already know to be true… The Vancouver Real Estate Market is crashing.

If you want a front-row seat to the carnage and watch the bears and the bulls battle(Not that is much of a battle anymore., Everyone knows what is happening to the market), then here is a small list of some of the better Vancouver Real Estate blogs that you’ll want to read. Make sure you take the time to read the comments as that is where the real action is!

Remember, in a market like this, it’s the best time to sell(if you can. Price VERY Sharply). if you are looking to buy, invest your down payment instead, rent a place that can house you for 5-8 years, and then buy when the market has totally bottomed out. It’ll be the best thing you can do for yourself if you want to be a homeowner in the next few years!

The Blarney Stone Pub. Best Vancouver bar to see a bar fight!


The Blarney Stone Irish Pub in Gastown

The Blarney Stone Pub in Gastown, Vancouver, has been around for over 30 years. With its cheap beer prices and college student crowd, its one of the best places to see a bar fight in Vancouver. The bouncers are untrained and uneducated, the management is generally clueless and because it is always packed over capacity so everyone is anxious.

There are some great sightlines throughout this old Irish Pub in Vancouver. If you stand anywhere near the railing on the balcony, you’ll see at least 2-3 scuffles every Friday and Saturday. My girlfriends and I went there last year and saw some nastiness. Even the Manager got in to the mix and ended up getting slashed in the head with a bottle, causing blood to go splashing everywhere.

The fake line-ups they have are very long so go early and get a good spot. The band is pretty decent and there are some good looking students that go there, along with quite a few skids. You’ll have plenty to look at until people get liquored up and the frustations start to boil over.

I’m not sure what makes people want to fight at the Blarney Stone. Could be the huge fake line-up they have. Could be the bouncers that treat people poorly. Could be the dancefloor being so overcrowded that people get angry. Or, could it be the student mentality? Who knows but I know that out of the 20 or so times I’ve been there, I’ve seen a fight at least 15 times.

I can’t lie. It kinda excites me!

So if you are someone that enjoys watching(or maybe starting) a good ol’ fashioned bar fight, I suggest you check out the Blarney Stone Pub in Gastown. You’ll have a blast!
