"They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself." - Andy Warhol

 

Sales and listings stats are attached as of February 14, 2016. February continues the trend of a busy real estate market. What’s badly needed is still not coming on – Supply. The question of why prices are rising in all segments and areas of the market relate back to a fundamental of supply and demand – and right now supply is far below that of the demand in the market place. While constraints on demand is looked upon as a solution, the supply side of the equation needs to be tackled. This is becoming more and more evident in the strata segment of the market. In looking at inventory levels for strata properties we see that in Vancouver’s West Side townhouse/half duplex listings are down 56% and apartments are down 43% to last year at this time. In East Vancouver the townhouse/half duplex listings are down 48% and apartments are down 56%, in North Vancouver townhouse/half duplex listings are down 46% and apartments down 64%, and in Richmond townhouse/half duplex listings are down 70% and apartments are down 27% to this time last year. So while it may seem like there is a lot of new building going on, it’s not enough. And with the pressure of affordability pushing people to strata properties from a dwindling stock of detached properties, supply will continue to be in need.  Here is a summary of the activity so far:

VIREB President Margo Hoffman notes that limited inventory is the biggest challenge for REALTORS® and home buyers in the VIREB area. Our housing market is now in seller’s territory, primarily caused by inventory levels that steadily declined month over month in 2015.
