sale list ratio

The sales for Richmond's detached homes for April 2017 improved further compared to the previous month. The sale to list ratio for detached homes edged up above 20%, to cross into the Seller Market, joining townhouses and condos in the Seller Market territory.

The median home price for Richmond edged up to around $1.6 million from $1.47 million. The decline in detached home prices since the middle of 2016 appeared to be arrested with the gain in April's median price. 

The median price for Richmond townhouses continued to climb after 3 months declined in the median price around the September and October period. Buying interest remain high for Richmond townhouses at current median price around $750,000. 

Richmond condos remain the most active market segment with multiple offers for most newly listed condos. There is a real shortage of condo listings to satisfy the high demand for condos in Richmond. There are no signs of the situation for Richmond's supply of resale condos surging to satisfy the high demand for condos for the next few months.

Sales-to-Active Ratio

Both townhouses and single family detached homes in Richmond had been in Seller Markets since early 2015. Buyer interest for these two groups of homes picked up strength in October 2015 and home sellers were getting multiple offers for their homes within days of their homes being listed for sale.  

Home prices for townhouses and detached homes in Richmond jumped significantly as a result of strong buying interest from home buyers.

Richmond Benchmark Price

The price lines for detached homes in Richmond had deviated far above the trend line by 50%. There is a high likelihood of substantial price adjustment to the trend line level. For home sellers, selling now appear to be a prudent decision to capitalize on the great price they can get in today's market.

The townhouse situation is less critical as the price above the trend line appeared to be just around 10%. The strong buying interest for detached homes and townhouses and low supply of inventory may not continue un-interrupted. A sudden pullback in buyer interest if compounded by a reversal in the supply of homes would ease demand.

The condo market is relatively stable. Price gain in the condo market was noticeable for presale condos and recently completed new condos. Condos under 5 years were found to be the most sought after segment of the condo market.

Hot Vancouver and Surrey Housing Market

Hot Housing Market Every Where!

sell video

The red hot housing market around the major metro Vancouver markets like Vancouver, Burnaby and Richmond has now spread to the suburbs and neighboring municipalities like Coquitlam, Surrey, LAngely and as far as Abbotsford and Mission.

Detached home prices in cities within  20 to 30 minutes drive to downtown Vancouver are selling well over $1.2 million. Most entry level older homes were sold for their lot values as holding properties or eventually get torn down to be replaced by new homes.

Tri-Cities and Fraser Valley Homes 

Homes that were sold 2 years ago at $500,000 to $600,000 in these areas are now routinely soldl for $800,000 or more. It is increasingly difficult to find single family homes selling at $500,000 or less.

The video to the left about riding the housing roller coaster; going up and coming down is a warning to the danger of a housing crash. When this will happen is any body's guess.

Since the 12% or so drop in 2007 as a result of the credit crunch, the housing market for Vancouver has gained in value for the past 9 years.

Multi-family Townhouses and Condos   

New townhouses and condos have been selling like hot cakes lately. There was a noticeable jump in townhome prices between 10% to 20%. Similarly, new condos in hot areas were seeing an increase of 10% or more.

Is it time to sell?

The market is unsustainable at current price level. It is time to seriously consider the risk of a sudden decline in home prices.
