Vancouver Average Price on the Grill

Takin a Break

In May Vancouver’s average detached home prices paused. Is this a summer time adjustment while the warm weather redirects our attention to warming BBQ grills instead of selling your home.

Summer Break


Emulating the slight decrease witnessed in March this latest price drop may amount to nothing more than sellers taking a “summer break”.

Over all inventory still resides in negative numbers relative to years past. The balance between a buyers and sellers market continues to favor a sellers market.

Contrary to some opinion, as the seller’s BBQ grill warms in the months ahead expect average prices to heat up later this year.

OK my limit entry from March as been triggered. I’m short at $1.78M with a stop loss at $1.85M. Up $55k looking for my first take profit at $1.4M.

Wish me luck!
