What does all this mean?

In the detached home market on the west side of Vancouver, prices are down around 8% from last year, sales activity is down as well, and listings are up. All of this creates a BUYER'S MARKET - great time to BUY!

For condos, activity continues to be strong, with prices up, listing numbers up, but activity down in the summer months. It is a SELLER'S MARKET.

For townhomes, which is a small market on the west side, listings are up, sales slightly down but prices still on the rise. One reason for this is lack of supply and high demand, especially amonst the down sizing crowd. This is a BALANCED MARKET.
