VANCOUVER, B.C. – December 2, 2010 – Greater Vancouver residential home sales improved in November compared to the previous four months, with the number of sales posted on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) coming in slightly higher than the 10-year average for that month.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that the number of residential property sales in Greater Vancouver totalled 2,509 in November 2010. This represents a 7.4 percent increase compared to October 2010 and an 18.6 percent decline from the 3,083 sales in November 2009.
Looking back further, last month’s residential sales represent a 187.1 percent increase over the 874 residential sales in November 2008, a 13 percent decline compared to November 2007’s 2,883 sales, and a 6.4 percent increase compared to the 2,358 sales in November 2006.
“Housing sales numbers were fairly typical for a November and indicate a fairly balanced market. Activity on the buyer side has been stable, with slight increases, over the last few months while the number of homes listed for sale in our region has declined each month since we reached a peak in June,” Jake Moldowan, REBGV president said.
Total active residential property listings in Greater Vancouver currently sit at 12,384, a 12.1 percent decline from last month and a 12 percent increase from November 2009. New listings for detached, attached and apartment properties declined 17.1 percent to 3,030 in November 2010 compared to November 2009 when 3,653 new units were listed.


“Home values have been relatively stable over the last five months compared to the summer period when we were seeing some downward pressure on prices,” Moldowan said. “It’s the homes priced accurately for today’s market that are receiving a lot of attention and selling right now.”

The MLSLink® Housing Price Index (HPI) benchmark price for all residential properties in Greater Vancouver over the last 12 months has increased 4.1 percent to $580,080 in November 2010 from $557,384 in November 2009. This price has remained virtually unchanged since June of this year.
Sales of detached properties on the MLS® in November 2010 reached 1,050, a decrease of 9.8 percent from the 1,164 detached sales recorded in November 2009, and a 226.1 percent increase from the 322 units sold in November 2008. The benchmark price for detached properties increased 5.6 percent from November 2009 to $799,312.
Sales of apartment properties reached 1,052 in November 2010, a decline of 24.6 percent compared to the 1,396 sales in November 2009, and an increase of 156.6 percent compared to the 410 sales in November 2008.The benchmark price of an apartment property increased 1.9 percent from November 2009 to $389,168.
