We want you to know that our open house this weekend at 4552 North Piccadilly in West Vancouver will be sanitized inside and out with Aviation Gin. We’ll be ready for you this Sunday!

Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver reports January housing sales up 42.4 percent from same month in 2019

The number of residential real-estate transactions last month remained 7.3 percent below the 10-year average for January, according to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. But sales last month were still a whopping 42.4 percent above the figure recorded in January 2019, when the housing market was in the doldrums. “We’ve begun 2020 with steady home buyer demand that tracks close to the region’s long-term average,” REBGV president Ashley Smith said in a news release. “Looking at supply, we’re seeing fewer homes listed for sale than is typical for this time of year. As we approach the traditionally more active spring market, we’ll keep a close eye on supply to see if the number of homes being listed is keeping pace with demand.”

The article in the Globe and Mail exposed a reality that many residents were perhaps not fully aware of and how some unscrupulous folks are taking advantage of that. Read our response to the article:
