Market Update September 2021

Dated: September 13 2021

Views: 62

The condo market is booming with sales up over 22% compared to the same time last year. The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 3,152 in August 2021, a 3.4% increase from the 3,047 sales recorded in August 2020, and a 5.2% decrease from the 3,326 homes sold in July 2021. Last month’s sales were 20.4% above the 10-year August sales average.

Prices leveled off during the slower summer months as the supply of new listings struggled to keep up to demand, but the fall market is around the corner so we expect to see a rise in new listings in the weeks ahead. If you've been considering a sale, it's a great time to sell. 

Housing supply is the biggest factor impacting real estate markets across Canada right now. The Liberals, Conservatives, and NDP have all made housing a major part of their platforms, so make sure you get out and vote on September 20. I've linked to an article below that outlines the housing promises of the LPC, CPC, and NDP.

Mortgage rates have remained steady and continue to be very good. If you're considering buying a new home, it's important that you're pre-approved for financing. Please get in touch if you'd like any assistance getting started on a mortgage pre-approval.

If you're ready to make a move, I'm ready to help.
