-1. This may be a good time to buy your new Vancouver condo if you are looking to buy only or looking to move up substantially.
-2. If you are moving sideways in price, the state of the market is immaterial. Now is as good a time as any. Vancouver is always a top choice for out of country investors and is always in the top 3 of places to live in the world!

Government reduces tax burden on first time buyers. Effective February 19, 2014 under the Property Transfer Tax (PPT) First Time Home Buyers Exemption program, qualifying first time buyers can buy a home worth up to $500,000. The previous threshold was $475,000. The partial exemption continues and will apply to homes valued between $500,000 and $525,000.
August 2021 Vancouver Real Estate Stats
Summer sees home listing supply decline across Metro Vancouver. With a revised mortgage stress test that reduces the maximum borrowing amounts by approximately 4.5 per cent, and the average five year fixed mortgage rate climbing back over two per cent since the beginning of 2021, we'll have to pay close attention to these factors plus the election leading into the fall, to understand what affect they'll have on the current market cycle.
Last month's sales were 20.4 per cent above the 10-year sales average.
The benchmark price of an apartment property is $735,100. This represents a 7.6 per cent increase compared to August 2020. Sales of apartment properties reached 1,631 in August 2021. This represents an increase of 22.4 per cent compared to August 2020.
