Statistics Are Dangerous: Real Estate & Fantasy Basketball

I have a love/hate relationship with statistics. I’ve always believed that statistics provide necessary insight, but they never uncover the entire picture. Making a choice based purely on statistics is a never a good idea. If you don't care much about basketball, you'll probably want to skip to the end. If you love basketball as much as I do, feel free to comment.  This year, for the ...

A Genius Idea: Buy Low, Sell High

During the infamous 'boom' years of 2006-2007 I discovered that, instead of putting my newly acquired kinesiology degree to use, I could make twice as much money doing easy temp work for oil companies.  The first company that hired me was a small office, only about 15 employees; all them dynamic and knowledgable, all of them raking in big time money.

CMHC - The Nice Gangsters

Let's use a Boardwalk Empire analogy:   You come to Nucky Thompson and say, 'There's a truckload of Canadian Club coming from the border but I need to give them the cash up front. A truckload of whiskey costs $1000. I can sell it over a period of time for a huge profit. I only have $100. Can you spot me $900 if I pay you $1500 in installments.'   Nucky says 'Sounds ...

A Tale of Two Januarys

January 2013 had far less snow than January 2014. I had a birthday party and I tried to cut back on junk food in each January. That's about all I remember. They seemed pretty much the same to me. That's completely untrue of Calgary's real estate markets in January 2013 and January 2014. They couldn't have been more different. To use the Charles Dickens analogy, January 2013 was Britain ...
