I didn't think there was a real estate bubble, but am now getting suspicious.

I wrote a paper about real estate prices in Canada a year ago by adapting the Case Sheller index formula for the Canadian market and only came up with Calagary as a potential bubble location.

However, it seems too good to be true that prices are still at historically unaffoardable levels in much of Canada. I live in Vancouver and with a two income professional household income my GF and I are unable to affoard anything more than a 1 bedroom apartment. That is a joke considering we have a combined income over 100k.

I too am looking for a place in Vancouver area and my wife and I also have a combined income over $100K although this will change next year when we have our first kid.

Even with a large downpayment (20%) on $300K I am very uncomfortable purchasing in this environment because interest rates WILL increase. Artificially low interest rates are keeping prices propped up when I was expecting a much larger drop in pricing.

Still looking for a good deal but who knows what will happen here.
