Market Updates

During the process of buying or selling a home, countless questions are bound to surface regardless of how "seasoned" you are in Real Estate.  Some questions are easily answered, however others may require a bit of research and study.   I understand how difficult it can be to sift through the mountain of information out there in order to find answers that are relevant and meaningful to you.  

As a firm believer in "knowledge is power," I do my best to educate and inform my Buyers and Sellers about the current market conditions and the process involved once you have made the decision to move.     

If you would like to receive regular Market Updates or newsletters please contact me at dodi.t@shaw.ca or call me at 604-644-3634

2017 Metro Vancouver Residential Real Estate Off To A Quiet Start

Due to largely reduced buyer activity in the detached home market, January 2017 residentail sales in Metro Vancouver were 10.3% below the 10-year January sales average. Overall conditions within the Metro market vary depending on property type. The sales of attached properties, condos/townhomes/duplexes, are still performing in strong seller's markets. And in most Metro Vancouver cities, for detached properties, we continue to see buyer cautiion and the after effects of the 15% foreign buyers tax resulting in buyer's market conditions, except for North Vancouver which currently sits in a balanced market.


Are we seeing price corrections after last year's tax and mortgage changes: Let's take a closer look at our micro markets to compare prices year-over-year. The median sale prices of a single family homes in Metro Vancouver* January 2017 vs January 2016 were::

  • North Vancouver -1%
  • West Vancouver -12.8%
  • Vancouver West -19.4%
  • Vancouver East -8% 
  • Richmond +1.3%
  • Tsawwassen -14.8%
  • Ladner -5%
