Stats Don’t Lie – Vancouver Real Estate Report for June

Buyer Run

The spawning ‘run’ of salmon in our B.C. rivers is an annual event. Based on June’s Stats that Don’t Lie the Vancouver Real Estate Board tells us that June saw a ‘run’ of Vancouver home buyers.

Taking the Leap

Last month’s sales were 0.6 per cent above the 10 – year sales average for June of 3,386.


The Board’s President Ray Harris claims that “competition amongst home buyers today is as strong as it’s been in the region” as the sales to active listing ration reached its highest level since 2011.

“Over the last three years , we’ve seen changes in demand yet home prices at the regional level have maintained relative stability. While these numbers provide high level trends, it’s important to know that changes in prices always vary depending on neighbourhood and property type.”

Hi Larry,

Sounds like the market is going to explode higher!

Bidding wars and surging demand in the face if shrinking listings.

Recipe for a bull market!

Lowest rates in history don’t hurt either.

It is really true that demand of real estate assets are increasing day by day and it will be more demandable in the near future.
