This four-bedroom four-and-a-half-bath ranch-style house with a finished basement level was built along a curved road in the Canadian west coast mountain resort by the architect Adam Schell in 2005. If markets like Vancouver are, say, 50% overvalued, that will require prices dropping at -5% per year with 2% annual income gains to revert.
