According to the recent market report from the FVREB, there was an 11% increase in sales over July last year and a 1.4% above the 10 yea average.

 

President of the Board, Ray Werger had this to say:

 

“July’s steady activity is a continuation of what we’ve been seeing all year. Our market has fully recovered from last year’s slump and has returned to what we typically see in the Fraser Valley, which is a steady, consistent market... we’re actually seeing a shortage of listings creating a seller’s market for particular homes."


In July the benchmark price determined by the MLS HPI of a 'typical' single family detached home was $568,300; for Townhouses it is $298, 500; for apartments it was $194,700.

Have you heard of the MLS HPI (Home Price Index)? It's a great tool that measures house price trends in the Greater Vancouver area and other major markets in Canada. 


Developed by 5 of Canada's largest real estat boards (Greater Vancouver, Fraser Valley, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal), it measures the change in price of housing features.

 

 

Other HPI facts:

- It measures pure price changee (inflation or deflation)

- It measures the price of a 'typical' property

- It uses lot size, age, number of rooms, etc to provide accurate information

- Simply enter the area you are interested in, the type of property (residential, detached, etc), and date

to determine the HPI for the property type in the area you are interested in

 

Click here to check out the HPI.

 

If you are trying to figure out what you can afford in the areas you love, or want to know what your home is worth, get in touch and I'll be happy to answer your questions!
