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.

Latest News

The Real Estate Board of Metro Vancouver reports:

While the supply of homes for sale has increased across Metro Vancouver, home buyer demand has remained below typical levels for this time of year. Last month’s Metro Vancouver sales were 36.1% below the 10-year September average. Since spring 2018, home listings have risen to levels we haven’t seen in over four years. Despite better choice, one of the reasons buyer demand has moved away from the fast pace of 2015 to 2017 can be attributed to the new mortgage stress test rules. Prices have not adjusted, and buyer’s are now left with less buying power. It is important for both home buyers and sellers to understand what these trends mean to them and what strategies they can deploy in this market

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
