vancouver: Buyer's Condo Choces Keep Getting Better - 10/25/08 12:18 PM
With all the bad news lately in the newspapers I thought to update the absorption rates in the Greater Vancouver area for condos. So what does the following chart say. Well, for example, the absorption rate for NorthBurnaby has gone from 8.18 to 9.24 in the last month. That means that it will take on average 9.24 months to sell a condo in North Burnaby. East Burnaby looks the best, but it is a very small sample. The aren't too many condos being built or resold in East Burnaby.On the other side of the market, West Vancouver condos have gone from (0 comments)
vancouver: It may just take a little longer to sell yor home in Vancouver - 10/25/08 12:01 PM
Depends where you are in the Lower Mainland it may take you an average from 7.2 months to 18.8 months to sell your home. Sellers in North Vancouver still seem to have the best shot at selling their homes quicker than elsewhere. Luxury home market in West Vancouver is slower. Sellers need a lot of patience and some good preparation to sell their homes. It is not like nothing is selling. There are 31 homes on average, being sold in West Vancouver. Cool heads should prevail and sellers have to get reasonable if they have to sell. Buyers are well informed. (0 comments)

This review was conducted by a banking analyst, Charles Peabody of Portales and partners. prices seem to be bottoming out and there has been increase in home sales and reduction in "days on te market' time.

vancouver: Yuo Better Talk To Your Realtor - 07/28/08 01:09 PM
Most of us Realtors work hard with our clients and go to a lot of effort to present the property in the best possible light. We buy good equipment and sometimes fancy software to play with pictures, virtual tours, panoramic scenes etc. Sometimes we use outside service to get these photos and virtual tours done. Today, I was looking for a property for one of my buyers and found a listing with this picture. Wow! This is July! Middle of summer and the sun is shining. There is no way this picture should be up now. Even if the listing is (6 comments)
