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.

So far 2016 has been anything but a typical year for residential real estate in Metro Vancouver. In the first 7 months residential sales out perfored 10 year-averages in a very fast paced seller's market; since August, we've seen detached sales dip below 10-year averages into the lower end of a buyer's market.


So what changed? In August we saw the introduction of the 15% Foreign Buyer's Tax, In October new mortgage rules, and In November new rules around the principle residence captial gains exemption. These changes have resulted in buyer caution. In 2017 I expect to see seller and buyer expectations return to more balanced levels, and with the improvements in active listing inventory, buyers will find there is more choice and opportunity to find their way back into the market. 

 

We are still seeing postive gains year over year on the median price of a single family home in Metro Vancouver* November 2016 vs November 2015 was::

  • North Vancouver +7.4%
  • West Vancouver -7%
  • Vancouver West +12.9%
  • Vancouver East +10.7% 
  • Richmond +14.4%
  • Tsawwassen +2%
  • Ladner +17.3% 

 The key to success in any market is to be well prepared, and getting you ready for all market conditions is my top priority! If you are planning a change in lifestyle, let's work together to make it happen. Let's talk! Regards, Dodi 604.644.3634
