The East Vancouver townhome and half duplex market also remained steady over last month, after seeing an increase in activity over last year. The Average and median prices hover around $630,000 for an, on average, 1300 sqft home. A good majority of the homes sold were 3 bedrooms homes as developers are focusing on families who need extra space and bedrooms. One third of the sales this past month were units built in 2012 or 2013, and having worked with clients who purchased the last remaining townhome unit in a recently completed complex near Commercial Drive, I know that this market has a lot of interested Buyers. The location, and number of bedrooms one the same level are key factors in families choosing their new home.
