East Vancouver Detached House Market Update: September 2015

East Vancouver Detached House Market

We saw some respite for Buyers looking to get into the detached house market last month – the sales to active ratio dropped to 33%, which is the lowest it’s been since it was at 32% in January, though make no mistake, it’s still a very busy market with not enough inventory to satisfy the demand, and continually increasing prices pushing certain Buyers out of the market. It will be interesting to see what happens this fall with inventory and interest, and how that affects prices.

Average and median price dropped slightly over July, but are still up 23% and 27% respectively since this time last year. Currently, average price is $1,290,209 while the median price is $1,259,400. Take a look at this graph detailing average prices of detached houses in East Vancouver over the last few years:
