Home buyers have more confidence today than we saw in the first half of the year. the Metro Vancouver housing market is experiencing a fall pickup in home sale activity.  The sales to active listings ratio for condos is 32.5 per cent and 25.7 per cent for townhomes. Overpricing will only make your condo sit on the market. Sellers now is still the time to list your home as good inventory is very low. We are still a world class city with investors looking to us first for safety, clean air, safe banking, top schools and mild winters. Please call me as there are many buyers looking for your exact home.  Downtown Vancouver is a very specific special micro market and cannot be compared to any where else in this province or in Canada. The foreign buyers tax and speculation tax have also been implemented. Click "Google map"  to search all properties.
