This is your Real Estate Market update by Coquitlam Realtor® Krista Lapp for sales in February 2023 for Greater Vancouver.*
Cities included in Greater Vancouver are: Coquitlam, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, New Westminster, Burnaby, Pitt Meadows, and Maple Ridge.
Last month we experienced multiple offers, condition free offers, and many sellers setting a date to review offers. New listings are still at an all-time low, which makes selection limited for buyers.
During the month of February, 35% of properties sold, which means it’s a seller’s market. Total sales for February 2023 were 702, which is a 46% decrease from last year, and an 89% increase from the previous month. The median sales price for a home in Greater Vancouver was $1,090,000 which is a 14% decrease from last year and a 7% increase from the previous month.
The total active listings last month was 2,015, which is a 24% increase from last year and a 1% decrease from the previous month.
For detached homes throughout Greater Vancouver, it took on average 18 days to sell, which is down from the previous month.
For attached properties which includes condos, town homes, and duplexes it took 25 days to sell, which was the same as the previous month.
Benchmark prices for all property types increased from January to February. As we move closer to a spring Market we should start seeing more inventory come on the market, which also means more buyers will be in the market too.
