The thing is that if you are in your home in Victoria right now, then chances are very good that it was built by a developer, even if it was built in 1912.
I think the greed 100 years ago is greater than today. Read the Colonist ads from a century ago and they're treating land like it's the Yukon gold rush. Subdivisions were springing up everywhere and landowners appealed to speculators with wild promises of future riches to those that built houses on Victoria's outskirts.
