East Van Real Estate Market Update – Townhomes and Half Duplexes
The townhome and half duplex market in East Vancouver has a 20% sales to active ratio even with a 35% drop in sales over the previous month. The $600,000 to $700,000 market and $800,000 to $900,000 market are strong, clearly the result of people not yet being able to jump into the detached market, and the increase in attached homes being built by developers. The average price for a townhouse or half duplex is in the mid-$600,000’s, though you can expect half duplexes to be priced higher than townhouses.
