Ian Watt: Hi good afternoon it’s Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver. As we know, real estate is super hyper loco. The difference between Yaletown and Coal Harbour is significant the price per square foot in all the areas of Downtown Vancouver is quite significant. However, Coal Harbour being the most expensive place in the Downtown core has seen a huge impact in 2012 as far as activity is concerned. Anyone who spins real estate and says real estate doesn’t changed in Downtown Vancouver it’s got to be line or they’re not checking out the stats. In 2011 January 1st to September 15, 2011 there were 276 sales all sizes from studios to penthouses. January 1st to September 15, 2012 hundred and sixty. From 276 to a 160 sales. Big change in 2012 in Coal Harbour. Also the price per square foot is still well over $800 dollars a square foot but its come down about $45 dollars a square foot. Not enough to make anyone panic and not significant enough to change the whole real estate market but as far as activity is concerned it’s definitely down from 276 to 160 sales. Big changes in Coal Harbour. My name is Ian Watt if you have any questions you can always email me at ianwatt@ianwatt.ca. Thank you very much and have a great day!
