Vancouver Real Estate Market Update for February 2018

Posted on March 22, 2018

Spring is here and it’s typically the busiest time in the Vancouver Real Estate market. Rising interest rates and new mortgage rules have somewhat reduced the number of home buyers. Even still, the supply of condos and townhomes can’t keep up with demand whereas the detached market is starting to go into Buyers’ Market territory.

A buyers’ market occurs when the sales to active ratio drops below about 14%, a sellers’ market is when the ratio is over 20% and a balanced market occurs when the ratio is between 14% and 20%.

The Sales to Active ratio for detached homes is currently 13%, townhomes are sitting at 37.6% and condos are at a whopping 59.7%
