The June 2015 numbers from The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver are record-setting. It was the highest selling June on record.
The month saw residential property sales exceed 4,300, which is a whopping 28% more than that of June 2014. These numbers surpassed those seen in May. June 2015 also hit another high: four straight months with more than 4,000 sales per month.
These numbers signal a lot of positives for sellers. Many people believe that summer isn’t the best time to sell, but because most people take their property off the market, inventory becomes scarce and sellers can often see multiple offers and a quick sale. we are seeing some great inventory right now.
It’s also the ideal time to prepare for the fall market. We are available to consult with potential sellers and offer suggestions for staging, repairs or other issues a seller might not have considered. We have a list of pros to help get any place into top selling shape.
We also understand the additional pressure buyers struggle with in a competitive market. Many buyers feel the need to make major decisions in a rush, and that can be problematic. The current high demand for housing is further extended by the recent cut in interest rates, along with an expanding population base and a decrease in supply of detached homes.
We’re great at handling such complex scenarios to help potential buyers understand what they need to know in a stressful, often rapid-fire situation. We use our deep insight into the local market, dexterity with MLS listings and expertise in buying strategies to ensure your success.
