March 2017 Vancouver Market Update
March 2017 was the busiest month since last June! About 3,650 homes sold on the Vancouver Real Estate Board. Down by 35% compared to March 2016, but March 2016 was the all time record high month in the history of Greater Vancouver - 5300 homes sold! March and April usually see about 4,200 homes sold per month. So, our sales volumes are really about 20% below average not 35% or 40%. Home affordability, a low supply of listings and a lot fewer active foreign buyers in our market are the reasons why!
City Looking to Get it Right
The City of Vancouver’s new General Manager of Planning, Gil Kelley recently reported that he is looking at all options to breathe life back into Vancouver’s over priced west side neighborhoods by allowing more duplexes, triplexes and four-plexes as well as possibly allowing rental laneway homes to become stratified titled properties. Diminishing school enrollment is a huge problem for municipal and provincial governments.
Strata title properties are experiencing strong buyer demand everywhere so far this year. Active listings are low as the market remains under supplied.
Prices for detached housing seem to be flat lining in most Vancouver areas (high end homes not so much) after price declines during the last half of 2016, which, varied or varies per area and by price range.
