East Vancouver Condo Market Update – April 2016

07.04.2016

Condo Sales in East Vancouver

The East Van condo market is incredibly busy right now – the sales to active ratio (which is the number of listings compared to the number of sales) is at 1 right now, which means every condo that is listed is sold. Inventory dropped compared to last month, and is hovering around the average thus far for 2016.

The average price per sqft is about $620/sqft and the median price per soft is $575/sqft. The median number of days on market is 8, which is the perfect number to allow a listing agent a chance to list the property, hold open houses and accept offers the week after listing. This is common practice these days, but don’t forget that it’s not a guarantee! Some agents will look at offer before a scheduled offer day, so contact us to ensure you know what the situation is.

Take a look at some of the stats for 1 bedroom condos vs two bedroom condos vs three bedroom condos so you can get a sense of how the market has shifted over the last three years. Since three bedroom condos are a rarity in East Vancouver, those stats are skewed, but one bedroom and two bedroom condos seems o follow a similar path.

(Green is 1 Bedrooms, Blue is Two Bedrooms, Orange is 3 Bedrooms)
