VANCOUVER, B.C. – January 5, 2011 – The Greater Vancouver residential housing market entered three distinctive phases in 2010. Continued buoyancy from the post-recession recovery began the year, followed by a summer lull and, throughout the fall, a sustained period of stability.

 
The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that total sales of detached, attached and apartment properties in 2010 reached 30,595, a 14.2 percent decrease from the 35,669 sales recorded in 2009, but a 24.2 percent increase from the 24,626 residential sales in 2008. Last year’s number of housing sales was 10.3 percent below the ten-year average for annual Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) sales in the region.
 
The number of residential properties listed for sale on the MLS® in Greater Vancouver increased 9.7 percent in 2010 to 58,009 compared to the 52,869 properties listed in 2009. Compared to 2008, last year’s total represents a 7.3 percent decline compared to the 62,561 residential properties listed in 2008. The number of properties added to the MLS® peaked in April and generally declined for the remainder of the year.
 
“The last two years have been a bit of a rollercoaster for the real estate market. However, sales over the past six months have definitely shown a trend toward stability. We think that’s good news for home buyers and sellers,” Jake Moldowan, REBGV president said. “The Greater Vancouver housing market experienced a modest increase in home prices in 2010, and a continual decrease in the number of properties being listed for sale.”
 
Residential property sales in Greater Vancouver totalled 1,899 in December 2010, a decrease of 24.5 percent from the 2,515 sales recorded in December 2009—an all time record for the month—and a 24.3 percent decline compared to November 2010 when 2,509 home sales occurred.
 
More broadly, last month’s residential sales represent a 105.5 percent increase over the 924 residential sales in December 2008, a 0.1 percent increase compared to December 2007’s 1,897 sales, and a 12.6 percent increase compared to the 1,686 sales in December 2006.
 
The residential benchmark price, as calculated by the MLSLink Housing Price Index®, for Greater Vancouver increased 2.7 percent to $577,808 between Decembers 2009 and 2010. However, prices have decreased 2.6 percent since hitting a peak of $593,419 in April 2010.
 
“Although we saw some pressure on home prices throughout the year, home values in 2010 remained relatively steady in the region compared to the last few years when we witnessed much more fluctuation,” Moldowan said.
 
New listings for detached, attached and apartment properties in Greater Vancouver totalled 1,699 in December 2010. This represents a 21.1 percent decline compared to the 2,153 units listed in December 2009 and a 43.9 percent decline compared to November 2010 when 3,030 properties were listed.
 
Sales of detached properties in December 2010 reached 769, a decrease of 14.8 percent from the 902 detached sales recorded in December 2009, and a 121.1 percent increase from the 348 units sold in December 2008. The benchmark price for detached properties increased 4.0 percent from December 2009 to $797,868.
 
Sales of apartment properties reached 811 in December 2010, a decline of 29.7 percent compared to the 1,154 sales in December 2009, and an increase of 94.5 percent compared to the 417 sales in December 2008.The benchmark price of an apartment property increased 1.2 percent from December 2009 to $387,115.
 
Attached property sales in December 2010 totalled 319, a decline of 30.5 percent compared to the 459 sales in December 2009, and a 100.6 percent increase from the 159 attached properties sold in December 2008. The benchmark price of an attached unit increased 2.7 percent between December 2009 and 2010 to $490,869.
