No longer just a hop skip and a jump.

After a grueling set of exams, I have been helping my parents move from Coquitlam to Maple Ridge. My parents were able to find a two year old home just slightly smaller than their old one for about $360K. Yikes! I remember when it was easy to buy a three bedroom house in Coquitlam for under $150,000. At this rate I will never be able to buy a house in the Lower Mainland. Now that the average price for a single detached house in Abbotsford is around $250,000 it looks like my wife and I will be renting for many years to come.

It was interesting looking through their old things. My parents have been living in the tri-cities for almost 25 years now. While we were packing, we found a whole slew of CP Rail paraphernalia

    Keep your eyes peel for Overdue fees Amnesty days at the library when you can drop off those books and not get billed for their cost. =)
