Spring delivers greater balance to Greater Vancouver housing market
A closer relationship between home buyer demand and the supply of homes for sale has been having a stabilizing impact on home prices in the Greater Vancouver housing market over the last three months.
The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential property sales in Greater Vancouver reached 2,627 on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in April 2013. This represents a 6.1 per cent decrease compared to the 2,799 sales recorded in April 2012, and an 11.9 per cent increase compared to the 2,347 sales in March 2013.
Last month’s sales equate to the lowest April total in the region since 2001 and 20.9 per cent below the 10-year sales average for the month.
“While the number of home sales remains below average, properties that are priced right are selling and we’re seeing greater balance between buyer demand and the number of homes listed for sale. This is having a steadying influence on home prices in the region,” says Sandra Wyant, REBGV president.
New listings for detached, attached and apartment properties in Greater Vancouver totalled 5,876 in April. This represents a three per cent decline compared to the 6,056 new listings reported in April 2012 and a 21.4 per cent increase from the 4,839 new listings in March of this year. Last month’s new listing count was 0.4 per cent above the region’s 10-year new listing average for the month.

Century 21 Real Estate LLC, the franchisor of the world’s largest real estate sales organization, announced the results of a third-party survey that shows consumers identified the CENTURY 21 brand as the “most respected in the industry.” CENTURY 21 maintained its lead in brand awareness among consumers presented with a list of real estate organizations, a position it has held since 1999.
In the study conducted by global market research firm Millward Brown, the CENTURY 21® brand achieved 96 percent total brand awareness among consumers in the market to buy or sell a home in the past two years or in the next two years. The nearest industry competitor was five percentage points behind. The study also notes that the CENTURY 21 System remains one of the top recommended real estate agencies in “Likelihood to Recommend and Future Consideration.”
“The fact that CENTURY 21 was identified by consumers as the most respected real estate brand in the study is due to the hard work and dedication of our sales professionals,” said Rick Davidson, President & CEO, Century 21 Real Estate LLC. “Our continued prominence in this brand study is a testament to our bold marketing initiatives designed to keep our agents top-of-mind with home buyers and sellers.”
The CENTURY 21 brand advertised in both the 2012 and 2013 Super Bowl® games, as well as the 2012 Summer Olympics. CENTURY 21 Real Estate is also the official real estate company of U.S. Soccer. Additionally, in 2012, the brand has enhanced its website, century21.com with advanced functionality, including search by top-ranked schools, neighborhoods, and added highly relevant content such as property detail pages displaying schools that children would attend based on school zone attendance boundaries.
Thank you to our amazing vendors, old – and new – friends, and clients who came out to support our 2nd Annual FRESH LOOK show! We hope you all got some great reno ideas, and met some lovely people.
Please let us know if you missed the show, and can provide you with our list of trades and vendors, and a complimentary home renovation guide!
See you next year:)
What do you get when you bring together a room of like minded individuals with a passion for homes and renovations? Fresh Look Vancouver. This trade show is the brainchild of local realtor Ashley Avinashi, who together with mortgage broker Jacqueline Baker, wanted to create a niche environment where homeowners could get them- selves renovation-ready. “We’re helping homeowners and buyers learn about the art of renovations, find credible product and service suppliers,” says Avinashi, “and a place to ask questions and share.” The pair has brought together a select group of vendors, each of whom they have worked with and each specific to a different area of renovation.
Attendees can learn about the latest green technology when it comes to home renovations and take advantage of supplier discounts. The second annual Fresh Look Vancouver takes place April 13 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Creekside Community Centre in the Olympic Village. Admission is by donation, with proceeds benefiting our local chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Whether you’re in the planning stages, or even just contemplating a renovation, Avinashi and Baker hope this event provides “one-stop shopping” and a forum to explore and share ideas.
