I knew there was something wrong with real estate valuations in BC, but I didn’t expect it to be this bad. I would expect Vancouver to be on this list, but never would I have expected Abbotsford and Kelowna on the list. These are cities far far away from Vancouver and yes they’ve been growing, but things have gotten a little out of hand.
Can you say speculation? 4 of the top 21 cities are in BC.
