It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness. - Seneca

 

Attached are the Sales and Listings Stats updated to the end of January 2014. January typically starts off slower and gains momentum as the month progresses. This year was no different. Only 5 times since 1986 has January seen a higher number of units sold compared to the preceding December for Greater Vancouver. As well, Greater Vancouver sales in January 2014 were higher than January 2005, with total sales in 2005 being the highest amount on record. A pretty good start after all. Total Active Listings are down from this time last year and 2012, with strong absorption of new listings coming on market – 33% in January 2014, compared to 26% in January 2013 and 27% in January 2012. The Benchmark Price for Greater Vancouver is at the same level as it was in January 2012 but up 3% compared to January 2013. So while prices declined through 2012 and into 2013, they are recovering coming into 2014. While the weather is cold to start February in Vancouver, the real estate market is starting to warm up!
