"basically everyone The Telegram talked to insisted that this is not a bubble." - of course real estate agents aren't going to say there's a bubble, and for homeowners, denying a bubble exists is wishful thinking.

I still think prices are up because of the agents. The seller thinks 200,000. The agent says he can get 250,000. The buyer is told it's worth 245,000 but gets it for 240,000. Everybody is happy. Then the benchmark is set for the neighbourhood and prices are up 20%. If people stopped buying for a while, prices would drop.

As an individual who has moved here for educational reasons, I have to say it mind boggles me that for the amount of people who live in St. John's you have so much wasted sprawl, last time I checked in the city proper (NOT THE CMA) there were only approx 110,000 residents. When you look at the geographical size of the city 628.66 km sq versus my home town of 1.1 million and a geographical size of 1529.8 km sq, it appears crystal clear that the mindset of people residing in the city of St. John's has to change and change quickly for the betterment of the entire city.
