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.

Home Buyer Demand in Metro Vancouver below historical averages in August

The Real Estate Board of Metro Vancouver reports:

The Federal Government’s B20 stress test continues to impact buyer's in our residential market, and has eroded buying power by approximately 20%. These changes have had strong impact on first time home buyers, people renewing their mortgages and buyer’s looking to move up the property ladder. The reality of lower buying power can clearly be seen in last month’s sales, which were 25.2% below the 10-year August sales average in Metro Vancouver, and are mainly the result of slow detached sales. Over the last 3 months we have seen less frenetic housing demand, more balanced conditions in many regions, fewer multiple offers and more choice for buyers. Metro Vancouver currently sits in a buyer’s market for detached houses and a seller’s market for condos and townhomes.

The key to success in any market is to be well prepared. My top priority is to help you navigate these changes in all types of market conditions. 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
