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.

Generally, analysts say downward pressure on home prices occures when the sales-to-active listing ratio dips below 12%. When we look at our micro markets' performance in April, we see market types well above the 12% and prices trending above last year. Overall we do not expect to see a market correction on prices. Only West Vancouver detached property sales seems to be hovering around the 12% mark, mostly due to slower sales of high priced homes, yet their median sale price is above last year.

 

While the market is not operating at the same record pace of last year for detached properties, demand for condos and townhomes continues to out pace supply, which is making multiple offer scenarios the norm.

 

With such strong condiditons for Seller's, the key to success in any market is to be well prepared, and getting you ready for all market conditions is my top priority in 2017! If you are planning a change in lifestyle, let's work together to make it happen. I look forward to working for you. Regards, Dodi 604.644.3634
