Vancouver Home Buyers did not take a vacation this summer August numbers prove! The Metro Vancouver housing market experienced steady home sale, listing, and pricing trends for the month of August. Property sales in Greater Vancouver were up over 10% from August 2013.
“Activity this summer has been strong but not unusual for our region,” Ray Harris, REBGV president said. “The volume of home sales has been higher than we’ve seen in the last three years, yet below the record-breaking levels of the past decade.” Last month’s sales were 4.3% above the 10-year sales average for August.
