Vancouver Housing Market Update

Posted by on Jun 23, 2012 in Blog

Current Vancouver Real Estate Market situation is: the total number of new listings and active listings are continue to increase, while sales is decreasing. I expected that the housing price is going down in a few months if not sooner. MLS board May stats show that residential property sales in Greater Vancouver reached 2,853 on MLS. This represents a 15.5 per cent decline compared to the 3,377 sales recorded in May 2011. On the contrary, new listings and active listings are increased by 16.8% comparing to May 2011. In such real estate market situation, home sellers will most probably want to lower their listing price; while most home buyers would most likely to wait and hold. Therefore it pushed sales volume even lower. Stats also shows that sales-to-active-listing ratio sits at 16%. The ratio in some areas could be...

Posted by on Nov 30, 2010 in Blog

(From VancouverSun) A new report suggests that low mortgage rates combined with a growing population and an improving economy bode well for Metro Vancouver home sales for the rest of 2010 and 2011. “For the next year, we’re looking at favourable mortgage rates, a steady flow of migrants to the Lower Mainland, and a growing job market,” Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. senior market analyst Robyn Adamache said in an interview about the federal agency’s housing market report that concluded sales will remain stable until mid-2011 before trending higher. “We’re looking at about 33,000 sales for Greater Vancouver [in 2011]. We’re looking at 31,000 this year. The 10-year average is about 34,000. The B.C. Real Estate Association also predicted in its fall housing forecast last week that B.C. housing sales, while declining 12 per cent this year to 74,950...

UBC Market Housing Plans To Accomodate 51,000 In 20 Years

Posted by on Oct 19, 2010 in Blog

According to the local Vancouver news: University of B.C. plan to build more market housing and turn the campus into a town of 51,000 people over the next two decades, which will increase the non-student population on campus to up to 35,000 by 2021 from 6,410 today. Metro chief administrative officer Johnny Carline said while the regional district supports UBC’s general plan for a “balanced university town,” he’s worried they want to build more high-end market housing for the public at the expense of student accommodation. This could pose serious problems for Pacific Spirit Park, the city of Vancouver and the regional district as a whole, especially if people are commuting from UBC to other areas to work or there isn’t enough green space left on campus, the report said. “A significant increase in market housing, which will undoubtedly...
