There may not be a better time than the present to make an offer for Vancouver homes for sale. The Globe and Mail’s Kerry Gold states in his December 13, 2013 article:
Along with a jump in house sales, house prices in Vancouver have risen sharply and will likely continue to climb in the new year, pushing some frustrated house hunters to call for curbs on the foreign buyers they blame for stoking the rapid ramping up of housing values.
B.C.’s real estate market powered through third-quarter 2013 as the number of sales rose 18.91 per cent this year over last, according to the most recent report by Landcor Data Corp., which bases its findings on provincial assessment numbers. The total value of those sales rose 25.62 per cent to $14.72-billion for July through September.
The above may strike chords with residents of the Couv. The city often wins the Best Place to Live in the World award under a number of international bodies and surveys because of its friendly residents and welcoming atmosphere. Sometimes, residents may say you’re a Van native if you know the differences between three types of salmon or will be interested in a suburban job yet live downtown. When you have decided to move to Vancouver and need to buy a place, take the next step with help from a trusted real estate agent like Jean Seguin.
Part of the challenge of finding your dream home is marking which neighborhood has the right combination of basic services and transportation access (among others) for you and your family. Your Realtor may provide a number of listings to help you out, depending on which specific areas you are interested in. Your budget helps narrow down the listings but some properties may be higher; a new third-quarter report by Landcor Data Corp revealed that median prices of single-family houses in Metro Vancouver, for example, were up 6.39% year-on-year to almost $869,780.
Searching for homes for sale in Vancouver will not be a tedious exercise when you have an agent like Jean Seguin guiding you to a place you’d love and afford. However, it’ll be a mad scramble to land one when you have other buyers with their sights on the same.
