The East Van condo market had a 28% sales to active ratio in July, with 105 sales and 373 current listings. The average sale price is just over $400,000 while the median sale price if $350,000 – indicative that there are a lot of high priced condos, but just as many listings under the $350,000 mark. You’ll find most of those inexpensive listings in oft-overlooked areas of East Van like Collingwood and Hastings East, though you may find some affordable options in Grandview-Commercial Drive and Mount Pleasant. The most active markets last month were, not surprisingly, the $300k to $600k price range, and $800k to $900k. Some of the highest priced condos in East Vancouver are in condos bordering the West side and hugging the east end of False Creek. Look for more listings to hit the market in September, and be sure that you’re pre-approved financially and connecting with us to ensure that you’re on the right path to finding a great home.
