East Vancouver Townhouse and Half Duplex Market Update – January 2016


The townhouse and half duplex market in Vancouver slowed last month, especially when compared to the previous month. The number of listings remained the same (at 53) but the number of sales dropped from 35 to 8. The average price increased from just over $800k to the mid-$900’s, though a lot of that is to do with fewer sales to consider in the average, where many of them were at a higher price point (i.e. it was more duplex sales than townhouses).

This half duplex and townhouse market in East Van will remain busy as Buyers move up from their 2 bedroom condos into larger 3 bedroom townhouses. There isn’t enough inventory to satisfy Buyers, and it still takes a long time to build new properties in Vancouver thanks to the City’s restrictions and slow approvals with regards to new developments.

Take a look at the inventory number for townhouse and half duplex listings (specific to East Van) over the last few years:
