The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) has released the latest stats from January for the local market, citing an 8.7% increase in residential property sales over January 2014. See below for some highlights from the report. 

 

- Residential property sales in Greater Vancouver reached 1,913 on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in January 2015 compared to the 1,760 sales recorded in January 2014, and a 9.6 per cent decline compared to the 2,116 sales in December 2014.

 

- Last month’s sales were 14.9 per cent above the 10-year sales average for the month.

 

- New listings for detached, attached and apartment properties in Metro Vancouver1 totalled 4,737 in January. This represents an 11.4 per cent decline compared to the 5,345 new listings reported in January 2014.

 

- The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is currently $641,60022. This represents a 5.5 per cent increase compared to January 2014.

 

“While demand remains steady, we’re seeing fewer homes for sale at the moment,” Ray Harris, REBGV president, said. "This is creating greater competition amongst buyers, particularly in the detached home market. The number of detached homes listed for sale today is the second lowest we’ve seen in four years.”

It's been a busy year for Drew & Team Steeves!

 

We've had the pleasure of helping many clients list and sell their homes and find the perfect new nest to call home.


Throughout the Fraser Valley we have sold a variety of properties ranging from condos and apartments to spacious detached homes- we've done it all! Each property and client unique from the next.


We work hard to make sure our clients have a stress- free experience and take pride in the quality of service and attention we give our valued clients.

 

We know how busy and stressful moving can be (we know, we moved this year too!) and we want to do everything we can to make the process as smooth and quick as possible.

 

We hope 2014 was a good year for you and your family and we look forward to continuing to serve our clients in 2015.

 

Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and wonderful New Year!

 

Warmly,

 

Drew & Team Steeves.
