Current: Vancouver area Real Estate Market ranges from a Sellers Market to a Buyers Market with average of 9.9 %SOLD rate. See each city for the full details.
March's Real Estate Statistics shows 48% of Vancouver's Detached Markets decreased values this last month. Overall, Single Family Homes in Metro Vancouver experienced an Average Monthly Price decrease of $2,135 which is a slight improvement over the $3,340 decrease that we saw in the month prior. On the Average Fraser Valley continues to show a stronger Market with their $10,681 monthly increase, which is even more than the $8,381 increase that we saw in the month prior. With many new foreign buyer taxes, the much tougher mortgage lending rules, the higher interest rates, pending trade tariffs, we are forecasting the beginning of Buyer's Market across most Detached Markets.
Currently, most of the Condo and Townhouse Markets are hot, and we are seeing higher sales prices across the Greater Vancouver (Lower Mainland). 89% of the Townhouse Markets are currently increasing (25 out of 28 Markets). There is a Notable difference between the top 50% of the attached markets which are stabilizing over the much stronger bottom 50% of the markets which can see multiple offers. We are forecasting a continued Seller's Market in the lower end Condo/Townhouse Markets for the following months. We analyze and provide 97 individual City's Home Price Indexes to supply you the MOST ACCURATE Market Trends every 2 weeks.

Year to Date Real Estate Price Changes
Single Family Homes Top 50% See all Markets
Here on the first Graph the Year to Date Price Changes for the Top 50% Single Family Housing Market comparing all cities in the Greater Vancouver areas is up an AVERAGE of near 4%.
Do note that in West Surrey and a few other cities prices are actually DOWN!
So the Realities are that Prices in a few cities actually went up over 6.6%.
Now compare this to the Condo Markets (Lower 50%) See all Markets
Yes the Lower 50% of the Condo Market actually went Down on Average.
Do notice that only a few cities even beat our expected 2% Canada Consumer Annual Inflation Rate.
Are Condos a good investment? When will they go up?
Low End Condos attract very little foreign investment. This Market is considered mostly a Job Driven Market!
The Condo market will recover and increase when Demand Increases eg: when we have stronger employment with good paying jobs. More Tim Horton jobs will not create many more home buyers.
The Condo Market is so easy to Over Supply with the many new high rises currently being developed this year. Single Family Lots ...in other words "DIRT" will continue to be the the one true investment that can rarely be over supplied.
