Outlook

Associated confidence with lower interest rates has driven the Kitsilano detached market. As witnessed in a number of public domain reports, overall detached sales exceeded many expectations during this period – Kitsilano was not an exception.

Catch-22

The drop in the total number of listings will, should it continue, become a concern in the next while. An interesting side effect of the drop in the over all inventory is that while sellers would like to sell and upgrade, they soon find that little in the way of suitable upgrade homes are available. Not wishing to be left out in the cold, quickly they remove their home from the market – ergo a Catch 22 that effects all levels of buying and selling Vancouver Real Estate. Could the market be heading for a stalemate? What might the next intervention be to relieve this potential conundrum? Rest assured, price definitely will be a factor.

Watch for this market variable developing in your ‘Kits’ neighbourhood.
