Why is Vancouver’s West End Condo Average Sale Price Still Dropping?

may'12 033 (Copy)Why is Vancouver’s West End condo average sale price still dropping?

In July there were only 2 of the 21 sales that sold over $500,000. Average sale price clocked in at $486,777 compared to $ 584,373 a year ago. Current price was first reached in Feb’07 and has been roller-coastering since then.  Fantastic opportunity for buyers!

Sales to active ratio sits at 20, up from 17 a year ago. Days on the market are 52, up from 31 a year ago. Read more

East Vancouver’s Real Estate Price Dips Slightly in June

imagesCABLVQXNEast Vancouver’s average sale price has been holding fast in the real estate downturn over the last year but it softened again in June,  from a peak of $702,000 in April to $674,000, equal to april 2011.

Is East Vancouver’s real estate price dip in June a sign of a downward trend or just a reflection of typical summer softening? I believe the latter. In fact townhomes are bucking the trend, being the only real estate  category with a tick up in prices.

How Are East Vancouver Property Sales?

East Vancouver sales softened also in June, clocking in at 281 but down from a peak of 540 in May 2007 and a bottom of 75 in Jan’09,  overall a healthy market. Sales to active ratio is 20% and days on market 44.  Sellers moved an average of only 3% off list price. Read more
