Grandview Grind


This snapshot of our local Grandview neighbourhood’s detached home market should make sellers happy as prices have held steady. If you were without any other influence you might just think this looks like a normal market.

In the period April 23, 2010 to June 22, 2010 detached properties in the Grandview neighbourhood showed the following results.


Total Listings declined by one from April/May’s 68 to May/June’s 67.


Sales saw a decline of 4 sales dropping to 9 in May/June which as a percentile of April/May’s 13 is significant.

Expired, Reductions, Increases, Days on Market

  • April/May had no listing mandates expire but that jumped to 2 in May/June.
  • Price reductions in April/May were 13 increasing to 17 in May/June.
  • There was 1 price increase registered in both periods.
  • Worth noting is that it only took 9 days to sell a house in April/May which increased to 22 days in May/June. Are buyers taking longer to make up their mind?

Man Larry these dailys are giving me the spins. Yesterday sell/list was pushing 100% and now its less than 25%. Any idea what gives? Or is it just bad luck to do the paperwork on a wednesday?

took a look back and yesterday was abnormal so I understand why you are in a spin. Don’t have a brilliant explanation for you as to the ‘why’. Could be Karma, stars aligning, extra staff at the board or the shifting of tectonic plates that created the Quebec earthquake – who knows??
here’s last week’s sales as well as the past 3 days that I recorded 169,120,147,176,114 – – 83,207,56
***you will of course remember the time stamp so these aren’t the finals for the day but they do tell a story. Me – I’m going with the earthquake theory. 🙂
