East Vancouver Townhouse Market Update – October 2017


East Vancouver Townhouse Market Update – October 2017

The townhouse market in East Van is one os the busiest markets based on sales to active ratio. The ratio is 130% for 1 and 2 bedroom townhouses and 46% for 3 bedroom townhouses. Inventory has dropped for townhouses and sales are up. The unfortunate thing about townhouses is there isn’t a ton of inventory available, despite them being a fantastic option for those who can’t quite afford a house. The City of Vancouver recently announced new zoning changes that will allow for more infill housing (i.e. laneway houses, couch houses and boutique complexes) than are currently allowed, which will hopefully increase the stock available to buyers. The unfortunate part is it will take years for the finished product to be available.

The average price is $760k for 1 bed townhouses ($872/sqft), $898k ($821/sqft) for 2 bed townhouses and $861k ($602/sqft) for 3 bed townhouses. Keep in mind the price of 3 bed townhouses is skewed by the plethora of options available in South Vancouver on Leasehold Land that is often quite a bit cheaper than Freehold units.
