Metro Vancouver sees fewer home sales and more listings in July


Metro Vancouver sees fewer home sales and more listings in July

Home buyer activity returned to more typical summer levels in Metro Vancouver last month.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential property sales in the region totalled 2,960 in July 2017, an 8.2 per cent decrease from the 3,226 sales recorded in July 2016, and a decrease of 24 per cent compared to June 2017 when 3,893 homes sold.

Last month’s sales were 0.7 per cent above the 10-year July sales average.

“Housing demand is inconsistent across the region right now. Pockets of the market are still receiving multiple offers and others are not. It depends on price, property type, and location,” Jill Oudil, REBGV president said. “For example, it’s taking twice as long, on average, for a detached home to sell compared to both townhomes and condominiums.”

There were 5,256 detached, attached and apartment properties newly listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in Metro Vancouver in July 2017. This represents a 0.3 per cent increase compared to the 5,241 homes listed in July 2016 and an 8.1 per cent decrease compared to June 2017 when 5,721 homes were listed.

The total number of properties currently listed for sale on the MLS® system in Metro Vancouver is 9,194, a 10.1 per cent increase compared to July 2016 (8,351) and an eight per cent increase compared to June 2017 (8,515).

“Because home sale activity decreased to more historically normal levels in July, the selection of homes for sale in the region was able to edge above 9,000 for the first time this year,” Oudil, said.

For all property types, the sales-to-active listings ratio for July 2017 is 32.2 per cent. By property type, the ratio is 16.9 per cent for detached homes, 44.9 per cent for townhomes, and 62 per cent for condominiums.

Generally, analysts say that downward pressure on home prices occurs when the ratio dips below the 12 per cent mark for a sustained period, while home prices often experience upward pressure when it surpasses 20 per cent over several months.

The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is currently $1,019,400. This represents an 8.7 per cent increase over July 2016 and a 2.1 per cent increase compared to June 2017.

Sales of detached properties in July 2017 reached 949, a decrease of 11.9 per cent from the 1,077 detached sales recorded in July 2016. The benchmark price for detached properties is $1,612,400. This represents a 1.9 per cent increase from July 2016 and a 1.5 per cent increase compared to June 2017.

Sales of apartment properties reached 1,468 in July 2017, a decrease of 8.4 per cent compared to the 1,602 sales in July 2016. The benchmark price of an apartment property is $616,600. This represents an 18.5 per cent increase from July 2016 and a 2.7 per cent increase compared to June 2017.

Attached property sales in July 2017 totalled 543, a decrease of 0.7 per cent compared to the 547 sales in July 2016. The benchmark price of an attached unit is $763,700. This represents an 11.9 per cent increase from July 2016 and a 2.4 per cent increase compared to June 2017.

The next step to your own personal paradise: buying a home by the sea


Are you someone who likes to escape the stress of everyday life from time to time and prefers to always travel to the same holiday destination? Then maybe it is time to invest in your own property at your destination of choice. A second home abroad guarantees a relaxed holiday atmosphere and allows you to get to know your favourite holiday region from the inside out. Due to the increasing demand for real estate in the Mediterranean region, a second home is more than merely a comfortable holiday domicile at your preferred holiday destination – often it can also generate attractive financial returns.

Whatever your motives are for wanting a second home, choosing the right home and getting professional advice will ensure that you will never regret purchasing a second home abroad.

In our brochure “Your Private Piece of Summer” we have put together an exclusive selection of attractive properties from the Mediterranean region to help you with your personal property search. If you would like to get an idea of the diverse range of properties available in the Mediterranean region, we invite you to read our article “The Fascination of a Home by the Sea”.

How you too can benefit from a home by the sea

Apart from how a home by the sea can benefit you personally, renting out your property also has great income potential. A welcome side effect: Searching for a property for renting out is not any more difficult than searching for a property for only yourself. After all, potential tenants will be looking for more or less the same in a holiday home as you: a well maintained outdoor area, an appealing interior and proximity to popular tourist attractions will make your property attractive for future tenants.

Especially when searching for a perfect second home, the location is absolutely decisive. Properties in direct proximity to the sea generally boast a special atmosphere, magnificent panoramic views and idyllic surroundings.
