What’s Happening in the East Vancouver Condo Market?
The East Van Condo market has been busy this month with a 26% sales to active ratio and double the sales over the previous month, though last year at this time saw more sales. Prices increased 17% over last month to an average price of $407,000 and a median price of $379,000. East Van still has a number of new condo buildings adding inventory to the market, including the Independent, Central, Block 100, Canvas, Midtown, Wohlsein, Paragon, Shine and more, so expect interest in this market to continue, along with steadily increasing prices (1 bedroom units for sale in these new buildings are high $300k to low $400k). With this increase of newer condo buildings, East Van has a wide range of different types of condo buildings – don’t cast aside an older building, they have a lot of great features. East Van still has a number of more affordable neighbourhoods in Hastings East, Collingwood, Fraser and Knight.
