March East Van Real Estate Update

March 2016 East Vancouver Townhouse Data

Well Spring has officially sprung and the East Vancouver Townhouse market has been VERY competitive for buyers.  There simply are not enough listings to keep up with the demand.  This is especially prevalent in the 2 and 3 bedroom townhouse market.  Every townhouse that was listed sold, and most sold in multiple offers.  The average sale price in March for Townhomes in East Vancouver was $736,250 which was up from $699,000 in February 2016.  The reason for this is LACK OF SUPPLY.  There were only 27 Townhomes on the market in March and they all sold.  The average sold for 4.7% over asking price.

As we continue through the Spring market and into the summer market I expect this market to remain very competitive for buyers and very lucrative for sellers.  The number of buyers looking to move from a condo to a townhouse or duplex dominates the number of available options.  This leads to multiple offers and upwards pressure on sale prices.
