On a work related topic the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver has released a news release for the statistics on last month’s market, the board is now saying that there is a closer relationship between home buyer demand and the supply of homes for sale which is causing a stabilizing effect on home prices in the Greater Vancouver market over the past three months. “While the number of home sales remains below average, properties that are priced right are selling and we’re seeing greater balance between buyer demand and the number of homes listed for sale. This is having a steadying influence on home prices in the region,” says Sandra Wyant, REBGV president. If you would like the full report please visit the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver’s site. I would gladly answer any questions you have about the ever changing market in your neighborhood, please feel free to contact me anytime or 604-468-0010.

I hope everyone gets out and enjoys this great summer like weather we are having here in the lower mainland, don’t forget to apply the sunscreen, with many record temperatures broken over this past weekend (22 on Saturday & 37 Sunday) and many more expected to be broken today!
