Does Kitsilano Have a New Neighbour?


A new neighbour means longer and leaner outcomes in this Kitsilano detached home snapshot.

Snapshot Series Kits Det 2013 03 28

The two periods considered in this Kitsilano Snapshot cover 60 days beginning January 26, 2013 and ending March 28, 2013


Total Listings stagnated during the two 30 day periods. Jan/Feb’s total was 53 as was Feb/Mar’s.


It was a shallow pool for sales but sales in Kitsilano did increase a little from 7 to 10.

Expired, Reductions, Increases, Days on Market

  • Expired mandates decreased from Jan/Feb’s 4 to Feb/Mar’s 1 suggesting that pricing levels are more realistic and reflective of the current market place.
  • Sales appear to have run into a wall during the Feb/Mar period as the Days on Market increased from 14 to 54.

New Neighbour

Kitsilano has long been a place where new neighbours are welcomed.

Under the assumption that decreasing prices and the increased length of time it takes to sell a home are the new neighbour. I would speculate that this neighbour will not be readily welcomed by the current residents selling their piece of Kitsilano.
