Killarney – Neighbourhood Numbers

Total Listings decreased from February/March’s 64 to March/April’s 59.


Sales dropped February/March’s 14 to March/April’s 10.

Considered by many to be a great neighbourhood, with fine schools and community center, Killarney’s real estate market is hot.

Eerily similar, market patterns seen here closely match those in Cambie,and Grandview.

The sense amongst contemporaries is that a change is afoot. Will the Vancouver residential home market trip and tumble? Idle coffee conversations with cohorts are leaning in that direction. However, none are expecting it to equate a star burst.

I believe you should post a comment on how you engage potential buyers in the buying process. It’s the least you can do given the great articles and comments you post here.

re: least I can do – Simply it all starts with a phone call or an email. They talk, I listen. If we get along, we start the process.

This will be a HOT HOT HOT month for sales.

Hotter even for listings.

Next month, sales will wane a tad and change.

Listings will skyrocket.

MOI will move from 4-5 up to 7+.

June gets worse.

July will be a horror show.

And so on….and so on.
