Vancouver Real Estate Market Update for April 2022


Metro Vancouver home sales return to more traditional levels in April

 Home buyer demand in Metro Vancouver* returned to more historically typical levels in April.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 3,232 in April 2022, a 34.1 per cent decrease from the 4,908 sales recorded in April 2021, and a 25.6 per cent decrease from the 4,344 homes sold in March 2022.

Last month’s sales were 1.5 per cent above the 10-year April sales average.

“So far this spring, we’ve seen home sales ease down from the record-breaking pace of the last year,” Daniel John, REBGV Chair said. “While a small sample size, the return to a more traditional pace of home sales that we’ve experienced over the last two months provides hopeful home buyers more time to make decisions, secure financing and perform other due diligence such as home inspections.”

There were 6,107 detached, attached and apartment properties newly listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in Metro Vancouver in April 2022. This represents a 23.1 per cent decrease compared to the 7,938 homes listed in April 2021 and an 8.5 per cent decrease compared to March 2022 when 6,673 homes were listed.


The total number of homes currently listed for sale on the MLS® system in Metro Vancouver is 8,796, a 14.1 per cent decrease compared to April 2021 (10,245) and a 15.3 per cent increase compared to March 2022 (7,628).


“With interest rates climbing and the total inventory of homes for sale inching higher, it’s important to work with your local Realtor to understand how these factors could affect your home buying or selling situation,” John said. 


For all property types, the sales-to-active listings ratio for April 2022 is 36.7 per cent. By property type, the ratio is 25.3 per cent for detached homes, 47.1 per cent for townhomes, and 45 per cent for apartments.

Generally, analysts say downward pressure on home prices occurs when the ratio dips below 12 per cent for a sustained period, while home prices often experience upward pressure when it surpasses 20 per cent over several months

The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is currently $1,374,500. This represents an 18.9 per cent increase over April 2021 and a one per cent increase compared to March 2022.

Sales of detached homes in April 2022 reached 962, a 41.9 per cent decrease from the 1,655 detached sales recorded in April 2021. The benchmark price for a detached home is $2,139,200. This represents a 20.8 per cent increase from April 2021 and a one per cent increase compared to March 2022.

Sales of apartment homes reached 1,692 in April 2022, a 26.1 per cent decrease compared to the 2,289 sales in April 2021. The benchmark price of an apartment home is $844,700. This represents a 16 per cent increase from April 2021 and a 1.1 per cent increase compared to March 2022.

Attached home sales in April 2022 totalled 578, a 40 per cent decrease compared to the 964 sales in April 2021. The benchmark price of an attached home is $1,150,500. This represents a 25 per cent increase from April 2021 and a 1.1 per cent increase compared to March 2022.

My name is Axel. Ziba, pre-sales specialist in Vancouver. Number one is to discuss your wish-list, your location, and the desired budget.

So based on those information, your specialist has found you a perfect project and a development that you like.

So step two is for you to book and schedule an appointment to attend to those Sale Centers and discuss further information, select from best plans available and make an offer.

Step three and step four can switch places sometimes. Well, let's talk about the first option.

Step three is “Deposit”. some developers. They require deposit at the time of writing the offer or at the time of acceptance.

And some developers, they may require that after seven days, which we get to step number four, your seven days to do your due diligence.

And that's called “rescind period” or “recession period”.

congratulations.

The “7 Days” past and you've done your due diligence and every review and every disclosure has checked out and you've excitedly went ahead with the purchase.

Number five, is following the deposit instruction of step No. 3, if there is any remaining deposit is remaining. And closer to the Completion date, you do a walkthrough with developer's representative to look for issues that they need to be fixed.

Although you have the 2, 5, 10 warranty, this walkthrough is very important. It can be done with your hired inspector.

Of course, the next step after that is getting the key and celebrate and pop the campaigns. If you find this information useful, hit the LIKE and to SUBSCRIBE to my videos.

3 Points to Give you Advantage when Buying Presales

I'm a managing broker and presale specialist in Vancouver, and I'll be happy to share three secret weapons, put you at an advantage.
And also as a bonus, I'm going to be throwing 3, 1, 2, 3 pointers to put you in a lookout for pre-sales as well.
Let's start with number one, Enter the market when the price is at the platinum stage. That's a time One of the biggest advisors in the industry once told me it's about time in the market, not timing the market. 2- too many people ignore this part.
Now always review your contract. Every developer and every builder, they have their own contract, which has been written in their favor.
And that's the one you have to make an offer upon. Also, there are about 300 to 400 pages of a disclosure.
You have to go through many things. This is a simple template. I always refer my clients into, have that carefully reviewed with the lawyer and making sure if there is anything that is not in a consistency with what you want, then you can use your seven day rescission period or rescind and walking away from that deal.
That's an advantage. Number three, that's stem from number one as well. So when you enter a project early, you have a lot to choose from so many floor plan.
Don't stick with only one floor plan, take a look at many different ones, the layout direction of the unit and analyze everything.
This is the one that's going to put you into the advantage. Now stay tuned because I want to throw in three pointers to keep an eye on when purchasing your presale, the things that you need to keep your eyes on is 1- number one deposit.
So take a look at the deposit instruction from the developer or a builder.
That's one of the things to look after for number two, to keep your eyes on is the developer or a builder's reputation. And I can't say enough about number three, focus on location.
We all say that in real estate, that is location, location, location. I'm going to say that again, focus on the best location.

4- Number four, despite of the fact that some people believe that pre-sales, they have a futuristic prices, maybe 20% higher than the current pricing. If you're purchasing at platinum stage, and if you're using your VIP realtor to get you that platinum pricing with your choices, then you also get some bonuses from, from the developer.

5- Number five, you have seven days to rescind the contract, meaning that within that seven days, you have seven days to do your due diligence in terms of reviewing everything and everything in regards to the disclosure, the amendment to disclosure, the second amendment to disclosure. And so on understanding the fact, do a drive by the projects or anticipated location of the project, making sure you understand, talk to your realtor about that location, particularly and the history of the growth I'm going to stop right there.
