When you read the real estate market stats in the newspaper and hear it in the media its quite evident that Vancouver’s housing market continues to remain cool. Sales in February across the region were down again in February some 29% compared to last year and year to date are down 23%. Home prices to are down but ever so slightly.
On Vancouver’s Westside what’s going on really is neighbourhood specific and property specific. I am still seeing the strongest demand in Building Lots ( lot value properties). We sold 2 building lots in February, 1 in Dunbar and 1 in Shaughnessy. Both homes attracted multiple offers with the final selling prices moving way over the asking price. New Construction appears still very soft with a glut of new homes on the market and very few homes selling.
There have been some generous price declines on some properties where home owners need to sell. For those that do not have to sell, many homeowners have taken their homes off the market waiting for better times.
Below is a summary of Vancouver’s Westside Market Stats for February:
Westside Detached Properties:
Westside Attached Properties:
Over all stats show a soft but fairly stable market with supply levels only marginally up and prices showing resilience. There are pockets where prices have fallen by as much as 15% but for the most part price declines are fairly muted. I would say at the High-End of the market over $ 3 million there are potentially some pretty good deals to be had. Building lots and Lot Value homes in the sought after locations seem to have price stability.
