September 2017 Market Recap- Vancouver Real Estate Agent

 

Now that fall is upon us, I’d like to take a look back at how our Central Vancouver real estate market fared over the month of September.

To start off, the detached housing market had a 14% sales-to-actives ratio. This is about 1% less than last month.

The reason this market hasn’t seen any increase in prices or activity is that total listing inventory has increased 36% since August. These factors are a strong indicator that we’re in a buyer’s market.

Let’s turn our attention to the condominium market. In that market, there was a 59% sales-to-actives ratio. This is about 11% less than last month.

“The condo market is still red hot.”

The condo market is still red hot. Inventory is about 29% lower than last year and there are a lot of multiple offer situations taking place.

With all of this being said, I’m starting to notice my clients looking to sell their condos and buy detached homes instead.

Condo prices can only rise so much and the detached housing market is experiencing a temporary slowdown, so this is a great strategy.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
