8 A Yeah.
15 Q Okay. And you can see that it’s February 2nd,
17 A Right.
18 Q Okay. And so this is right at the time — you’re
19 seeing the Garniers six days after this?
20 A Yes.
21 Q Okay. And you can see it has a whole bunch of
22 information. I’m sure you’re familiar with it.
23 But it says about three-quarters, or a little past
24 halfway down the page:
26 Bright spots in Greater Vancouver
27 January 2007 compared to January 2006.
28 Detached Vancouver West up 16.9 per cent. 9
29 units sold up to 77.
31 So actually, what you’ve said is — is
32 opposite. The Vancouver West detached, which
33 is —
34 A Well, just –
35 Q — what —
36 A Could you slow down a moment.
613 Raymond Hunter (a Third Party)Cross-exam by Mr. Davison
2 Q Right? You can see that it says that this is a,
3 and I’ll quote, “Bright spot in Greater Vancouver
4 in January 2007″ —
5 A Um-hum.
6 Q — compared to the year before.
7 So I’m not going to debate with you whether
8 this is the right indication, but it certainly
9 seems like it is one of the indications, and what
10 you’ve told the court is that you said to the
11 Garniers that sales had dropped. Now, you — you
12 may have found a different way to come up with
13 that number, but it seems from your document that
14 in fact from the year before sales had gone up.
15 Is that — Is that what that says here,
16 Mr. Hunter?
17 A What this says is that the sales in the individual
18 month — the individual month — of January 2007
19 overall were up from the individual month of
20 January 2006.
21 Q Right. And in detached homes, which is what the
22 Garniers’ property is, right?
23 A Yes.
24 Q And in Vancouver West where the Garniers’ property
25 is, right?
26 A Yes.
(d) Mr.Hunter advised the Garniers that as the real estate market was dropping he would have no problem finding them a property in Kerrisdale for $900,000. Hunter’s testimony is more evidence he suggested to the Garniers a listing price of $900,00 and that he would find them a property for $900,000.
