ThinkPol used data from BC Assessment[1]https://www.bcassessment.ca to find out the data when a property was last sold.

The top 25 apparent speculators are attempting to gain more than 50% annualized return on investments from the flipping, our data shows.

One of the homes currently being flipped was bought last month, and 17 were bought this year.

The industry insider who tipped us off also sent us what they claim to be a random sample of data showing ownership information.

Based on land titles searches conducted through Land Title and Survey Authority of BC, ThinkPol has independently verified the ownership information provided by the industry insider.

As our source did not provide their raw dataset, ThinkPol is not able to independently verify the randomness of the sample.

The industry insider claimed that they are providing ThinkPol the data to expose rampant international speculation in the Vancouver’s real estate market.

“The realtors are going after you because there will be riots if people find out what’s really going on in my industry,” they said. “The general public has no idea how badly they’re being screwed over by my industry, and my industry wants to silence you before you wake the people up.”

Our source warned us to be vigilant.

“Please be very careful,” they said. “Greed’s tentacles spread far, wide and deep.”

We reached out to BC’s Finance Minister Carole James and Housing Minister Selina Robinson for comment two days ago, but have yet to hear back from either.

ThinkPol needs your help. While other media outlets are content reproducing real estate industry press releases, we carry out painstaking analysis of real estate data, spending hours combing through the data. And the data isn’t free. Each title search alone costs us $12.

Please consider chipping in to help ThinkPol.

    Damn all those last names sure have a lot in common

    • Zeke says:

      Yeah, almost like they were cherrypicked…as part of a ‘random sample’. Definitely not pushing an agenda here. No sir.

      • Kin Le says:

        Oh get lost. Everyone and their dog knows this is an Asian thing. Tired of this “looking the other way” crap. Vancouver has a problem and it IS foreign money.

  2. Sharon says:

    Thats crazy! Lets see what our government going to do…

  3. nonconfidencevote says:

    The only people that are “surprised” at the amount of Real Estate flipping and speculation going on are the politically correct idiots infesting Vancouver City hall and former BC Govt Liberals who denied, denied, denied offshore investors and flippers were a reality.

    Well guess what?
    The voters are pi$$ed.
    BC Libs out!
    Gregor and his PC Cabal next in line for a major drubbing in the polls.
