This is all you need to know - March home sales are the highest ever recorded !

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver said in a report Friday March sales were 126% higher than in the same month in 2020.  

The board said a total of 5,708 homes were sold last month, compared to 2,524 sales the previous March, when the pandemic was just beginning. The March 2021 number is also 53% higher than the total of homes sold this February (3,727). 

Focusing on the Downtown Vancouver condo market in March 2021, there is consistent activity in all price brackets. However, the under $1.5 million sales are incredibly hot.

The median price increased 1% from last month, and the median price is up 2% from March 2020. 



The average price per square foot increased 1% from $1,029 in February to $1,041 in March.



Our Downtown Vancouver inventory is holding steady with a decrease of 6% as there are presently 712 active listings.  



As always, the sellers’ best bets still remain 1 bedroom condos in particular in the Downtown and the West End. And the buyers’ best bets are units priced between $2 and $2.5 million, in particular condos in Coal Harbour and Yaletown  



I hope you find this helpful, but should you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.



Stay Safe !!!
