The reason I ask is that all these islands are broken up into different municipal jurisdictions and the real estate boards tend to follow district boundaries. Bowen Island has its own municipal government within the Greater Vancouver Regional District.


I’ll follow up with suggestions based on your response to these questions. Cheers.

Hi Skook

Thanks a lot for your message - I appreciate it. Principally, I'm interested in Bowen, and within Bowen, I'm trying to get a handle on price declines in the last 2-3 years. I've got the data from GVREB's press releases, I follow some of the realtors and I've also looked at Zoosk and MLS. What I think I'm really interested in would be something of the flavor of what An Observer offers all of us on the excellent "Vancouver Price Drop"; intuitively (and sometimes by observation) I can see that certain sellers are totally stuck on their price (I've been following for 18 months, and doing a little of my own charting) but the ones I'd be interested in help with are those MLS listings where you go, "Wow, I seem to remember this was on last year for $300,000 more/less" etc - it would be great if there were a resource for that kind of thing.

FWIW I grew up in West Van but have spent most of my adult life in Europe, just returned to Canada last year. In most European countries, previous prices are relatively easy to access - by law. I think Canada would benefit from a similar law. But that's just me.

anyway, would be grateful for any help you could provide.

Thanks -


Jimmy
