Wow... the highest number of detached sales in North Vancouver for February since 2002. Yep, I said 2002. There were 124 detached sales in February 2015 compared to 94 in 2014 and 137 in 2002. The least number was 46 in 2009. Coupled with low inventory, relative to the level of demand, multiple offers are commonplace in both North and West Van for detached homes, now trickling into the townhouse and condo markets as well.

However, not EVERYTHING is selling for higher than the asking price. The detached market saw 57 out of 124 homes selling at or over list price (from 3k to 160k); townhouses 25 out of 53; and apartment condos saw 31 out of 94.

Multiple offers are back in play as the North Vancouver real estate market experiences low detached inventory. There were 134 sales in March, which is up by about 19% over the previous year while listings are down by 21%. Due to the shift in supply and demand, 41 of those properties sold for asking price or, more commonly, over asking price. The busiest neighbourhoods being Lynn Valley with 8 and Blueridge with 5. Canyon Heights, Forest Hills, Central Lonsdale and Westlynn were also popular.

The West Vancouver market had a very different experience where only 9 of 62 detached sales resulted in multiple offers however, prices continue to rebound and are up by 6.8% over last year and 1.7% over last month. While condos prices are down by -1.6% over last…

In North Vancouver prices are up across all property types this February compared to last. Detached by 2.6%, townhouses by 0.6% and condos by 1.3%. West Vancouver notably experienced a 7.2% increase in detached pricing.

Sales in North Vancouver are up considerably as well with the most significant being townhouses by 47%, condos by 36% and detached by 26%. In saying that, we've noticed a large number of sales being posted over the last few weeks for single family homes so I would expect this number to bump up for March. 

Supply is generally down... buyers in the detached market don't have as much to choose from which is unfortunate. If this trend continues as more purchasers enter the real estate market this spring, we will see an upward pressure…

In North Vancouver prices are up by approximately 4% across all property types this January compared to last. While detached sales remain relatively unchanged, North Vancouver attached sales have increased. Apartment sales are up 32% and townhouse sales are up 12% over January 2012. We've also noticed in these early weeks of February that sales on new listings are happening more quickly... and that even 60 - 120 day old listings are starting to move. 

Now let's talk inventory. The total number of detached listings is down by 23.4% compared to last January and townhouse listings are also down (by 17%). This would be why those 'older' listings are starting to sell as more buyers enter the real estate market in these early stages of spring. On the flip…
