Vancouver Real Estate : Prices Begin to Lower (August 2018)


This August, sales in the Lower Mainland are continuing to drop to their lowest level this year. As Buyers are being less active in today’s market, we are finally seeing the impact of this inactivity on prices as prices for all housing types in the Lower Mainland begin to edge down.


Condition free offers are becoming a thing of the past, as Buyers have less competition and are afforded more time in making informed decisions. If you are waiting for the market to simmer down to jump in, now might be a good time..
