Congrats to my Buyer!

My savy and experienced Client and friend of the family was looking to purchase his "forever home", so the pressure was really on.

We wanted to find a spacious home, in a solid building, with generous outdoor space, all at a good value, and we did just that! This penthouse property in PACIFIC POINT has a massive 900+ sqft rooftop deck, and one of the most unique primary bedrooms I have ever seen. The fit and finish throughout is top notch, and the building itself has been newly rainscreened with brand new windows.

After a several rounds of back and forth between Buyer and Sellers, we were able to secure this wonderful home for my Client. I look forward to the next BBQ!! ...hint, hint:)

Testimonials

"Bradley Wattum is my agent. He stepped up as a salesman, worked very hard and got my house sold for a good price. One can't go wrong enlisting him as listing agent. Great agent and a friend."

by John

"We have worked with Bradley as our realtor in 2014 purchasing our first home and the experience was excellent so when we decided to sell in 2017 the decision to contact Brad again was easy to make. His professionalism and easy going personality make you feel comfortable through every step of the buying/selling process and not once did we feel pressured to make any decisions we were not comfortable with. Bradley was able to get us in contact with a mortgage broker and home inspector that have both saved us money and enabled us to purchase the home we desired in the neighborhood we have started our family in. If you are looking for someone you can feel 100% confident in them we would highly recommend contacting Bradley."

by Mark & Tomo

"I had an outstanding experience when purchasing my first home and cannot thank Bradley enough for his professional help. Bradley guided me through every step, laid out everything very clearly and gave great advice. I especially appreciated Bradley’s non-pressure approach, his patience, and him giving his honest opinion about each place that we viewed. Thanks to his knowledge and experience, I found my perfect home in my desired location and within my budget. I feel very fortunate to have him as my realtor, and it was a pleasure to work with him. I would highly recommend Bradley to anyone."

by Sigrid

"We have known Bradley for over 10 years. He has assisted us with the purchase and sale of several properties, including a townhouse and condominium, as well as the most recent purchase of a home in Kerrisdale, as well as the sale of our home in Arbutus. Bradley is always very professional, prompt and answers all of our questions fully and without delay. He cares, understands our requirements, and consistently meets our expectations when either selling or buying a home. We would use Bradley’s services again in the future. Thanks Bradley!"

Rising mortgage rates brought uncertainty and caution to Metro Vancouver’s housing market in 2022

VANCOUVER, BC – January 4, 2023 – After seeing record sales and prices during the pandemic, Metro Vancouver’s* housing market experienced a year of caution in 2022 due to rising borrowing costs fueled by the Bank of Canada’s ongoing battle with inflation.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 28,903 in 2022, a 34.3 per cent decrease from the 43,999 sales recorded in 2021, and a 6.6 per cent decrease from the 30,944 homes sold in 2020.

Last year’s sales total was 13.4 per cent below the 10-year sales average.

“The headline story in our market in 2022 was all about inflation and the Bank of Canada’s efforts to bring inflation back to target by rapidly raising the policy rate. This is a story we expect to continue to make headlines into 2023, as inflationary pressures remain persistent across Canada,” Andrew Lis, REBGV’s director, economics and data analytics said.

Home listings on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in Metro Vancouver reached 53,865 in 2022. This is a 13.5 per cent decrease compared to the 62,265 homes listed in 2021 and a 0.8 per cent decrease compared to the 54,305 homes listed in 2020.

Last year’s listings total was 3.2 per cent below the region’s 10-year average.

The total number of homes currently listed for sale on the MLS® system in Metro Vancouver is 7,384, a 41 per cent increase compared to December 2021 (5,236) and a 19.6 per cent decrease compared to November 2022 (9,179).

The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is currently $1,114,300. This represents a 3.3 per cent decrease over December 2021, a 1.5 per cent decrease compared to November 2022, and a 9.8 per cent decrease over the past six months.

“Closing out 2022, the data show that the Bank of Canada’s decisions to increase the policy rate at seven of the eight interest rate announcement dates in 2022 has translated into downward pressure on home sale activity and, to a lesser extent, home prices in Metro Vancouver,” Lis said. “While the consensus among many economists and forecasters suggests the Bank of Canada may be near the end of this tightening cycle, rates may remain elevated for longer than previously expected since the latest inflation figures aren’t showing signs of abating quickly.

We’ll watch the 2023 spring market closely to see if buyers and sellers have adjusted to the higher borrowing-costs and are participating more actively in the market than we have seen over the last 12 months.”

December 2022 summary

Residential home sales in the region totalled 1,295 in December 2022, a 51.8 per cent decrease from the 2,688 sales recorded in December 2021, and a 19.8 per cent decrease from the 1,614 homes sold in November 2022.

Last month’s sales were 37.7 per cent below the 10-year December sales average.

There were 1,206 detached, attached and apartment properties newly listed for sale on the MLS® in Metro Vancouver in December 2022. This represents a 38 per cent decrease compared to the 1,945 homes listed in December 2021 and a 60.5 per cent decrease compared to November 2022 when 3,055 homes were listed.

For all property types, the sales-to-active listings ratio for December 2022 is 17.5 per cent. By property type, the ratio is 12.3 per cent for detached homes, 19.5 per cent for townhomes, and 21.7 per cent for apartments.

Generally, analysts say downward pressure on home prices occurs when the ratio dips below 12 per cent for a sustained period, while home prices often experience upward pressure when it surpasses 20 per cent over several months.

Sales of detached homes in December 2022 reached 371, a 53.3 per cent decrease from the 794 detached sales recorded in December 2021. The benchmark price for a detached home is $1,823,300. This represents a 5.1 per cent decrease from December 2021, a 1.8 per cent decrease compared to November 2022, and an 11.4 per cent decrease over the past six months.

Sales of apartment homes reached 702 in December 2022, a 52 per cent decrease compared to the 1,464 sales in December 2021. The benchmark price of an apartment home is $713,700. This represents a 1.7 per cent increase from December 2021, a 0.9 per cent decrease compared to November 2022, and a 6.9 per cent decrease over the past six months.

Attached home sales in December 2022 totalled 222, a 48.4 per cent decrease compared to the 430 sales in December 2021. The benchmark price of an attached home is $1,012,700. This represents a 0.2 per cent decrease from December 2021, a 1.5 per cent decrease compared to November 2022, and a 9.2 per cent decrease over the past six months.
