Welcome to everyone who is clicking over from Garth Turner’s blog, the GreaterFool, but a special good morning to Garth himself who will be looking in periodically to get the latest info on the Calgary housing market. Garth had this to say about me… “Some realtors, like this one in Calgary, can’t function without worrying about me, reacting to me or trashing me.”
Well, Gartho, I function just fine without you, and I’ve never trashed you. That’s your preserve. As I’ve said before, if you stop telling lies about me, I’ll stop telling the truth about you.
For this special occasion when I have hundreds of Garth’s readers looking in, I thought it would be appropriate to honour him with this online poll: Garth Turner’s crack.
Garth, thanks for following my blog so closely. I see you’ve logged in 14 times in the past few days. When you logged in tonight at 5:56 pm(MDT), you spent 22 minutes of your precious time reading my blog. You certainly know where to find accurate information on the Calgary housing market, but I can’t believe you’re still using that tired and worn out Vista operating system. It looks like you used your HTC Panache Android smartphone, though, when you checked my blog before you went to bed at 9:48 pm(MDT). You’re up to 28 times on that one. If you had stayed up a few minutes longer, you would have seen this post.
With such intense interest in my blog, do you think it’s possible that Garth is considering Moving to Calgary?
Thanks, Garth, for posting the link to my blog. I hope you’ll continue to do it often. The blawg dogs will be better informed because of it, and I know that’s your main goal, to make people aware of the truth. I hope you continue to enjoy reading my blog, and we’re looking forward to seeing you in Calgary and hearing your scary predictions, which never seem to come true. For example, how did these turn out:
- Neighbourhood food shortages as just-in-time delivery systems are disrupted
- Real estate prices in Calgary, Edmonton, Fort Mac at 50% of 2006 levels
- Scaling back of 2010 Olympics in Vancouver
- Failure of a major Canadian bank, leading to emergency merger.
- Banks ordered temporarily shut and restrictions on cash withdrawals.
I won’t go into your Nortel predictions.
If you’re hoping to buy a house here, you’ll need to be quick on the draw. Look at this recent listing:
