"Life is 10% what happens and 90% how we react."
 – Charles Swindoll

The March real estate market was well summarised by Andrew Lis, GVR’s Director of Economics and Analytics:
“Despite the welcome increase in inventory, the overall market balance continues inching deeper into sellers’ market territory, which suggests demand remains strong for well-priced and well- located properties.”
In numbers:
  • Although we have 22.5% more properties currently listed than this time last year, the HPI benchmark price for all properties in Vancouver sits 4.5% above March 2023 and 1.1% higher than February 2024 (up 1.8% for detached homes, 0.9% for apartments and 1.7% for townhomes). 
  • Growing demand is responsible for the price increases, with the sales-to-listing ratio up from last month, now at 23.8% overall. By property type, it sits at 18.2%  for detached homes, 25.8% for apartments and for 31.3% townhouses. Generally, analysts say downward pressure on prices tends to occur when demand falls below 12% for a prolonged period, and increase when sustained above 20%
  • There has been a noticeable influx of homes being brought to market since the beginning of April. If this continues, demand could potentially be diluted. However, it is largely anticipated that there will be several modest cuts to the Bank of Canada's overnight lending rate this year - something which 26% of buyers are waiting for according to this recent Dye & Durham survey.
  • At today's (April 16th) federal budget announcement, the Liberals made a commitment to "unlock 3.9 million new homes by 2031" through a series of measures that includes converting public lands into housing and improved programs to help first-time buyers.
