Average June

April’s Showers…..

The last time we had a look at the average residential prices it seemed that we came up short on April’s showers as we watched May’s Average prices take a bit of a tumble. Today, on Canada Day 2010, the roles of attached and detached home sellers has reversed their fortunes.

April’s average apartment price took a hit at $427,847 bouncing in May to $444,055 only to wilt in June at $428,924.

Does this mean just Vancouver West and East, or also North and West Van? Or more?

System wide

Continuing the flattish range-bound trend it seems. Makes sense, likely more flat prices ahead.

wow, looks like I should put my townhouse up for sale right now for a certain positive profit after buying just last year. This market is crazy. No fear, the buyers are out there…..

Those are not bullish sales numbers. A chilling similarity to 2008 is developing; increased weakness extending into the summer months will bring price drops quickly.

Wouldn’t the rush to beat HST on new builds in June push up average prices? If so, i guess next few months should show a drop again.

Upenuff, the buyers are always out there regardless of the market condition.

Move fast if you still want that ‘certain’ profit… or maybe you’re already too slow.

are these average list prices or avg sale prices? you should make this clear as there is a huge difference between the two.

Buyers are always out there, but their numbers change and so does the amount of money they’re willing (and able) to invest, which also affects the market. If the sales are going down, the prices are bound to drop as well and it seems it’s going to happen soon. So yeah, it might be already too late but I think it’s never too late to at least give it a shot.

never considered it to be unclear but, now that you point it out it makes sense.

so? avg list price, or sale price?

July 3rd, 2010 at 10:12 pm

sale price

Sure the markets may slide a few points over summer. The most important data is Recovery time. How long does it take a certain market to get back to it’s highs
TSX is not back
DOW is not even close
US housing market forget it.
Europe housing market not in this lifetime
Canadian market getting better each day.
Vancouver RECOVERED in 10 months.
Keep up the great posts Yatter!!!
Strong future or not? Buying opportunity on dips?? .

The market is awaken again. And it is the last call for those buyers who missed the summer time. My feeling that strong fundamentals will continue to support demand for housing throughout the remainder of 2010 and in 2011.
