Vancouver real estate sales are picking up steam as we move towards the busy Spring market. The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that January sales volume was up 42.4% from the same time last year. We're also seeing a significant reduction in supply, which has led to greater competition between buyers and a return of multiple offer scenarios.

This increased activity in the market is a great reminder that you must be prepared when it comes time to make a purchase. If you're not pre-approved for financing then you may miss out on the opportunity to buy your dream home. We're also seeing an increase in buyers that are using tricks like pre-inspections so they can remove that condition and strengthen their offers. If you're planning to buy a home, it's important that you work with a Realtor that understands current market conditions and can help you succeed.

Mortgage rates are fantastic at the moment so it's a perfect time to get pre-approved for a mortgage. Please get in touch if you would like assistance getting started.

Contact me to schedule a consultation and we'll create a strategy to buy your dream home.
