February 2017 Market Update

Whoa Nelly!! The market has slowed over the last few months with the lowest listing count we’ve had in 14 years. With the low supply, it is certainly a Sellers market. While home sales are not happening at the pace we experienced last year, home seller supply is still struggling to keep up with today’s demand. This is why we’ve seen little downward pressure on home prices, particularly in the condominium and townhome markets. Multiple offers are on the rise in condo sales as they are still affordable with the many changes to the mortgage rules and qualifications. Let’s have a look at the statistics…We chose to post the North Shore 1 yr, 3 yr & 5 yr changes simply because it's where we live.  For more information about another Metro Vancouver area, please contact us directly.
