Home bidding war is just criminal without transparency

This is the 3rd time I put an offer on a house in 1 year and have had 2 different realtor so far. Both of them came back to me saying your price is too low, you will need to up the offer. But by how much? who is the other buyer, every freaking time its the same nonsense. When i asked the amount they say "owner not telling us", but your offer is low by a lot. wtf is a lot? 10k, 25k, 50k, 100k? "ya around 100k" How is this stuff legal? what is the proof that other party has 100k over asking price.

How are these agents not colluding to drive the price? Am I crazy to think this is just criminal and we need more transparency?

RANT: Lost another bidding war

Hi Guys, I am writing this while drinking beer as I lost another bidding war today. LOL

I have been looking for a 3bed 3 bath single family home since 2 years but always thought I could get a better price if I'd wait. I started looking in Brampton Mount Pleasant area last year and switched to Oshawa/ whitby this year.

Today I put an offer on a 2 bed 2 bath townhouse about 1300 sq feet in whitby shores. It was listed for 549k and I knew it would sell for atleast 100k overasking and I put an offer for 651k. When I saw that there are 30 registered offers I changed my price to 680k. So thats 130k over asking.

Guess what? It sold for 751k. 2bed 2 bath unfinished basement. That's 201k overasking for a tiny property 60kms from Toronto downtown. Seriously?

Zakabara Prime-Second Border

One of the key principles to survival in space as a human military ship was to remain undetected.

Unfortunately for Commandant Laurent, one of the key principles for deterrence is that you have to let the other side know that you're still there. Once in a while. Just to make sure they don't try anything too stupid.

Today, their target of intimidation was a lightly armed Zakabaran destroyer stationed right at the established midpoint line between Prime and Second. The goal is to paint them as a target on radar, get close, say hi to their radio operator to let them know they were still there, and then get back into stealth as fast as possible.

"We're coming up behind him, two hundred klicks," said Martin, her experienced pilot, "should we announce ourselves?"

Laurent took a deep breath, then nodded, "attention, crew: battle stations!"

There were only four other people in her highly automated destroyer, but it was still a good habit to remain disciplined and official in battle.

She felt her ears pop and the unpleasant telltale signs of decompression as they drained the atmosphere out of the crew compartment into compressed reserves.

The ship became much quieter, eclipsed by the sound of her breathing. Then, the acceleration kicked in as the ship fired the main thrusters to make itself a more difficult target in case they were shot at.

"Switching on active radar."


"We've detected a ship on radar!" shouted the nervous pilot of a Zakabaran Prime ship.

"It must be the human invaders! Where are they? Find out where they are!"

He scanned around on the radar screen, but he didn't see any ships, until…

"HOSTILE SHIP TO OUR REAR! Turn and face it!" the commander ordered.

"I have it in our sights, commander!"

"What are you waiting for?! Shoot them!"


"VAMPIRE! VAMPIRE! VAMPIRE!" shouted Martin, "missile launch detected from target ship! One hundred fifty klicks! Thirty-two seconds to intercept! Defending!"

Laurent felt the ship shift vector and her blood chill. She had only faced this situation in simulators and practice befo

The real reason NOK will Moon - The bidding war for national security

> The Finnish state is buying shares of Nokia Oyj to send a signal that it’s ready to protect the maker of 5G mobile networks amid a geopolitical battle in which the U.S. has expressed interest in owning a part of the company.
>
>The state’s equity-asset manager Solidium Oy recently crossed the 5% threshold in Nokia shares, and now has about 1 billion euros ($1.2 billion) worth of stock

Even if you ignore the fact that it's grossly undervalued given their cash flow, even if you ignore they are the major player in 5G space and are already making billions in patent royalty a year.

Let's put all that a side for a second. The new national security concerns after the major Russian Hack and Chinese compromised hardware will continue to become top priority for many countries. NOK is a MOON stock in the making.

  • Finland is bidding the stock up to retain ownership and to prevent acquisition.
  • Nokia itself has so much cash it has also been buying back back shares and will continue to do so. We are at the lows!
  • Now USA is trying to buy stakes now that it's dumping Huawei.

Also since I expect people talking about the 5 billion shares outstanding. Yes but realize its a $4 stock, the average buys are much larger orders. Also for reference apple has 16 billion shares.

The 5G play just started this year with the release of Apple's first 5G phone, sorry for those who invested too early the years prior and got burned.

Pre-approval and bidding war

Hello kind people of Ottawa and happy friday!.

I requested some info couple of month ago and everyone was very nice to guide me (I was unable to purchase any house, so just accepting the facts and renting - not the end of the world :) ).

A colleague of mine and his spouse are planning to purchase a townhouse in the surroundings of Ottawa, however, the bidding war is harsh, very very harsh.

Combined income is around $110k, no debts and good credit. They got preapproved as well from the bank.

However, the current trend is that people are purchasing townhouses without any condition - while I can barely wrap my head around no inspection, how do people go about no condition for financing?

Aren't people on the hook legally if the bank denies their mortgage at the last moment for any reason?

Is there any alternative way? For instance, go for a B lender that can provide a firm offer instead of a conditional one? Does it even make sense to go towards a B lender when one already has a bank as a lender?

Would anyone share any tip to get a property in this competitive market?

From my understanding so far, in the current market, pre-approval is pretty worth nothing given houses are being sold without any condition. Pre-approval will always (in 99% of the case) be with a conditional offer and subject to requalification.

Thank you all for your replies.

----

Edit:

Thank you everyone for the insights. They are approved for around 550k but they are looking for something around $450k, with a downpayment of 15%.

What would happen if they put an unconditional offer and for some reason, the bank simply decides to back off from the mortgage? Understandable that they may keep the deposit, but would they sue as well?

# Banks speak in a shady way whereby nothing is '100% sure' and there is a lot of uncertainties.

Not buying in to current bidding wars and over hyped market tactics

So bit of a story here and just wanted to share my sentiments and get some other perspectives

My situation is we are currently in the market for a 1+1 or 2 bedroom condo unit with subway access as an investment property, to rent to pay down the equity and hold long term

Am looking for a bit of a deal based on current market risk, but willing to spend around or at asking for the right unit at the right location, that checks all the boxes for us

Recently saw a 2 bed unit go up for sale right around yorkdale. It was listed at 499K. Really nice unit. Got in touch with our realtor who advised the seller has it listed with an offer date and is probably looking for north of 600K. I thought about it for about 5 seconds and immediately told him I wasn't interested

I don't know about anyone else, but I think buying right now at this point in time in this social and political climate, you're assuming a lot of risk. There are some very insane things happening market wise and who knows how sustainable it all is. I know there is always risk with any investment at any point in time, but you look at everything that is happening in the world right now, you almost have to say the risk of buying now and seeing a market crash is in many ways elevated vs how it may have been in the previous 3-5 years or so

That said, what incentive is there for me as a buyer to go and get involved in these idiotic bidding wars for a condo unit. We're talking <700 sf. I refuse to do it. As the buyer, I'm paying top dollar and assuming all the risk. What is the logic in that?

I'd much rather continue to pay down the principal on our existing mortgage, get my current property paid off much faster, and if the market crashes in 1 month, 3 month, 6 months, we can jump right in. If condos end up being 1MM for 1 bedroom off the subway in 5-10 years from now, hey all the best to those that paid 600K today. But I'm not betting on that. Not in today's market.

I just can't find the logic in paying top dollar and getting involved in bidding wars at a time like this? Am I being too short sighted and stubborn with this outlook, or what do you guys think?
