Home buyer demand depends on property type. The sales to active listings ratio for condos remains high at 57.2 percent and townhomes at 32.8 percent, which still indicates a strong SELLERS MARKET. Home prices will likely continue to rise until we see more housing supply coming onto the market. Sellers now is still the time to list your home as inventory is very low.  Some properties are still seeing multi offer situations in Yaletown. Demand remains elevated and listings scarce in the attached and apartment markets across Metro Vancouver. 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.  Click "Google map"  to search all properties.
