January's Real Estate Statistics shows just 44% of Vancouver's Detached Markets increased values. Overall, Single Family Homes in Metro Vancouver experienced an Average Monthly Price decrease of $12,262, which the same as the $12,671 decrease that we saw in the month prior. On the Average Fraser Valley still has a stronger Market with their $7,012 monthly increase. With the much tougher mortgage lending rules upon us, the higher interest rates, pending trade tariffs and chilly economic winds arriving, we are forecasting the beginning of Buyers Market across most Detached Markets.
