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.

Lots happened in August 2015 in Metro Vancouver Real Estate - the introduction of a 15% tax foreign buyer's tax and the move, in just 4 weeks, from a seller's market in Metro Vancouver's* detached housing market, to a buyer's market except in North Vancouver, where buyer demand has kept it in a seller's market.  Sales of Metro Vancouver attached properties, condos/townhomes/duplexes are still performing in a seller's market with strong buyer demand. So is the dramatic change in the sales of single family homes due to a summer slowdown, very low inventory, the new 15% tax, or a combination of all three? We will need to wait and see how the Fall market performs to answer that question.

 

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 this Fall, let's work together to make it happen. Dodi 604.644.3634
