What was good in April?

VANCOUVER, BC – April 2, 2020 – Metro Vancouver’s* housing market saw steady home buyer demand to begin March and a levelling off of activity as the month went on and concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak intensified.  

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 2,524 in March 2020, a 46.1 per cent increase from the 1,727 sales recorded in March 2019, and a 17.4 per cent increase from the 2,150 homes sold in February 2020.

Last month’s sales were 19.9 per cent below the 10-year March sales average.

“The first two weeks of the month were the busiest days of the year for our region with heightened demand and multiple offers becoming more common,” Ashley Smith, REBGV president said, “Like other aspects of our lives, this changed as concerns over the COVID-19 situation in our province grew.”

Thinking of listing your home?  

As the industry shifts to virtual showcasing we're finding our stride at the head of the pack.  We also understand that you can't just take some fancy pictures and 3D renderings etc. and leave it at that.  

Your home and property have so many great attributes that need to be communicated to potential buyers.  We understand how to tell those stories and connect with people and make sure that buyers understand the value of your home beyond what they can see in pictures.  

We work incredibly hard to illustrate those special features create excitement with buyers to help you earn the value your home deserves.  Get in touch to learn more.

Things to do or learn at home...

  • Check out our favourite Instagram accounts of the month.
  • Interior Design (source of a few domestic disputes around our place) but great to do while you're spending so much time at home these days.  (I really hope you're staying home and staying safe; just browse and be inspired).
  • Latte Art... I'm really no bueno.  But as I tell my wife; "I'm a work in progress."
  • Haircuts at home... unsuccessful and not highly recommended. #bowlcut
Our dear friends at True North Screen Printing are feeling the challenges of COVID19 like so many others these days.  We helped come up with a plan to create some good.  Their line of "Social Distancing" wears and goods is not only current now, but I can see myself wearing mine 5, 10, 20 years from now.  Not only that, it helps support a local small business with a heart of gold and they're also donating 10% of proceeds to Backpack Buddies.  A local charity near and dear to our hearts.
