As typical of September, the real estate market takes time to get going after the summer.

Total units sold has increased week over week so far in September showing acceleration in the market. The fundamentals of Vancouver’s Real Estate market appear much stronger than what is currently being reported. Opportunities exist in the market whether buying or selling, pricing as always remains extremely important.
