That’s a hefty drop for Condos Larry. One more of those and we will be negative YOY.

It would be interesting to see the numbers for Richmond, now that the HAM army has moved on to the North Shore. Did it leave destruction in it’s wake..?

Your timely numbers saved me from having to shut my blog down 🙂

The relative value of West Vancouver to Westside Vancouver or even Richmond is startling.
More house, bigger lot, views, for less money-simply because of the bridge?

Foreign money-launderers don’t care about value, just a safe place to stash their cash.

been away up coast so no current coffee chats

Re Dunbar house – Thanks.
Interesting reference note on this property.
Compare these 2 properties. Both houses are tear downs with identical lot sizes
The differences –
House #1 sold in 50 days for $1,585k. It has a north facing front door, no lane access, on the downhill side of the street.
House #2 sold for $1,900k in 6 days. It is 200 feet away from house #1, but has a back lane, a front door that faces south and is on the uphill side of the street.

Bottom line – it’s tough to be accurate when evaluating in this market. Even the appraiser was wrong on this one.
