East Van Condo Market: October 2013

08.10.2013

Vancouver East is still a great market for lower priced, 1 bedroom condos. With a good mix of old and new buildings (both those already renovated and those in need of some TLC), you can find a unit for a good price in an upcoming area of town. Due diligence is required to ensure the building you’re buying into is in good condition and managed properly, and considering the amount of re-zoning and development in Vancouver East, it would be smart to talk to the city about any potential construction that could change the dynamic of the area you have your eye on.

Prices increased slightly over August, with a 10% difference in Average Price. Interestingly, the prices now sit very close to what they were in September 2012, with an average of $480/sqft. This market remains fairly strong, and with an 18% absorption rate, it’s a Balanced Market for Buyers and Sellers.

The next most expensive condo sale in East Van last month sold for $885,000, making the loft at 27 Alexander a very special home.

The unit has in suite laundry, balcony, parking and storage. Note that condo units under 500 sqft can be hard to get financing  – you’ll typically be required to put down a larger down payment.
