Now that the Bank of Canada has jumped into the overvaluation discussion, brokers have weighed in on the organization’s methods and accuracy.

    Over value range of houses of 10-30%. Its too large of a spread. Don't you think?

    You have 2 distinct markets in Vancouver. Offshore buyers and local buyers. The local buyers market, based on rents, is undervalued. For example, you can purchase an older, 3 bedroom town home in Port Moody, about 40 minutes from downtown Vancouver, for about $320,000. It rents for $1750 per month. With zero down (if you could do it) the rent would cover the mortgage and all other costs including taxes and management. Normally, you would require 25% down or more to cover costs in the Vancouver local market (I've been involved in it since 1986). That townhouse should be valued over $400k. Good time to buy in Vancouver!
