Greetings!

As we move forward into 2018, one thing is certain, this upcoming year will no doubt be a watershed year for the real estate industry in British Columbia. The Superintendent of Real Estate is committed to introducing new rules and regulations designed to slow down the escalation in sale prices and rein in unscrupulous Realtors® who currently hold real estate licenses.

Personally, as a proud Realtor®, with over 22 years of experience, I welcome any changes proposed by the Superintend, if they make this industry more transparent and fair to all parties involved.

As mentioned in this space previously, I spent some time during 2017 updating and increasing my social media and online presence, and I would like to ask for your support with my efforts in these areas.

Please visit my Facebook page at Barrie Seaton - Your Local Realtor and you will see me on the right side of the page. Please click on “Write a Review” give me a star rating to describe your experience and click “Post”.

Thank you in advance for your support, and please feel free to contact me anytime if I can be of help or you need anything from me.

Home buyer demand depends on property type

Attached and apartment homes are in demand across Metro Vancouver* while detached home buyers are facing less competition today.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 1,818 in January 2018, a 19.4 per cent increase from the 1,523 sales recorded in January 2017, and a 9.8 per cent decrease compared to December 2017 when 2,016 homes sold.

Last month’s sales were 7.1 per cent above the 10-year January sales average. By property type, detached sales were down 24.8 per cent from the 10-year January average, attached sales increased 14.3 per cent and apartment sales were up 31.6 per cent over the same period.

“Demand remains elevated and listings scarce in the attached and apartment markets across Metro Vancouver,” Jill Oudil, REBGV president said. “Buyers in the detached market are facing less competition and have much more selection to choose. For detached home sellers to be successful, it’s important to set prices that reflect today’s market trends.”
