Vancouver Real Estate - Gift Bag Still Full

Season's Greetings !  Just thought I would take a mid month look at the real estate market in Vancouver.  Still showing good numbers in both sales and listings.  A very nice surprise on the listing side but I suspect there is a substancial number due to expire at the end of the month.  In the downtown, Yaletown, Coal Harbour and West End areas - the MLS is showing 984 current listings.  Not bad considering the time of year.  Maybe Santa will expand the gift list and someone can scoop a new home before the end of the year.  I say scoop as this is a great time to look at properties - before we enter the spring market which is just around the corner and comes early to Vancouver. 

This is a great week - families planning get togethers - shopping for gifts (who doesn't like the buzz of downtown) - the odd snowstorm to delay your flight - lost baggage (did I lock the door before heading to the airport ??) - yes we do it every year.  Make plans to finish up early but end up on the last day - looking for one LAST thing !  Nice to know that as of the 21st - the days start to get longer !!

Here is a break down of sales - as of today for the month of December.  Downtown showing 15 sales, Yaletown in at 19, Coal Harbour with 2 and the West End moved 6 properties.  More to follow as we proceed. 

I wish you all a safe holiday season and all the best for the new year.  If you have any questions about real estate in Vancouver - contact me anytime.
