East Vancouver Detached House Market Update – December 2015

15.12.2015

East Vancouver Detached House Market

The detached house market in East Vancouver followed through with what was expected – a drop in inventory (thanks to the upcoming holidays), steady days on market (the average this year has been 9 days), an increase in sales price (to an average of $1.39M) and a sales to active ratio nearing 50%. Detached house sales has have remained so busy, throughout the year, that it’s hard to say what’s going to happen to the market in the New Year. Hopefully the amount of inventory increases to satisfy the number of Buyers and bring the market back to a more normal pace. Until then, Buyers have to be ready to submit “subject free offers” on any property, which means you have to ensure your financing in solid, do a pre-inspection and gather any documents and information before submitting your offer. Having your deposit on hand and flexible dates are often needed as well. 

The busiest markets remain the neighbourhood close to downtown, including Mount Pleasant, Grandview, Hastings, Fraser, Knight and Main.
