My experienced Client was looking for a detached home to demolish and build new. After months and months of searching and negotiations, the property finally purchased was the very first one we viewed, way back in JULY/ 2022!; however, the Seller was not willing to accept our price at that time. We viewed many, many other homes and wrote at least 10 - 12 other offers; however, none of those Sellers accepted either. Soooooo much back and forth and negotiating. After our 5th or 6th attempt, the Seller for FOSTER finally accepted and we got the deal done. ...I think he just got sick of us, lol. The moral of the story, NEVER GIVE UP! Win by sheer persistence. ??
Buy or Sell with Bradley: detached, townhouse, condo, for home or investment.
CLIENTS FIRST SINCE 2003??
"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!"by Anna and James
"Bradley was hard working and very prompt with his service.He was courteous and professional in every aspect. I will definitely recommend him as a Realtor and now consider him my Realtor for future dealings."by Laura M.
Below average home sales allow inventory to inch upwards
February listing data show a continued reluctance among prospective home sellers to engage in Metro Vancouver’s* housing market, leading to below-average sales activity. With sales remaining well-below historical norms, the number of available homes for sale in the region have continued inching upwards.
The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 1,808 in February 2023, a 47.2 per cent decrease from the 3,424 sales recorded in February 2022, and a 76.9 per cent increase from the 1,022 homes sold in January 2023.
Last month’s sales were 33 per cent below the 10-year February sales average.
“It’s hard to sell what you don’t have, and with new listing activity remaining among the lowest in recent history, sales are struggling to hit typical levels for this point in the year,” said Andrew Lis, REBGV’s director, economics and data analytics. “On the plus side for prospective buyers, the below-average sales activity is allowing inventory to accumulate, which is keeping market conditions from straying too deeply into sellers’ market territory, particularly in the more affordably priced segments.”
There were 3,467 detached, attached and apartment properties newly listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in Metro Vancouver in February 2023. This represents a 36.6 per cent decrease compared to the 5,471 homes listed in February 2022 and a 5.2 per cent increase compared to January 2023 when 3,297 homes were listed.
The total number of homes currently listed for sale on the MLS® system in Metro Vancouver is 7,868, a 16.7 per cent increase compared to February 2022 (6,742) and a 5.2 per cent increase compared to January 2023 (7,478).
“While we continue to expect home price trends to show year-over-year declines for a few more months, current data and market activity suggest pricing is firming up. In fact, some leading indicators suggest we may see modest price increases this spring, particularly if sales activity increases and mortgage rates hold steady,” Lis said. “In the somewhat unusual market environment we find ourselves in right now with higher mortgage rates, fewer sales, and inventory that is inching higher but remains far from abundant, working with a Realtor who understands your local market conditions and has experience navigating challenging markets is paramount.”
For all property types, the sales-to-active listings ratio for February 2023 is 23 per cent. By property type, the ratio is 16.8 per cent for detached homes, 30.1 per cent for townhomes, and 25.8 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.
The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is currently $1,123,400. This represents a 9.3 per cent decrease over February 2022 and a 1.1 per cent increase compared to January 2023.
Sales of detached homes in February 2023 reached 514, a 49.1 per cent decrease from the 1,010 detached sales recorded in February 2022. The benchmark price for detached properties is $1,813,100. This represents a 12 per cent decrease from February 2022 and a 0.7 per cent increase compared to January 2023.
Sales of apartment homes reached 928 in February 2023, a 49.9 per cent decrease compared to the 1,854 sales in February 2022. The benchmark price of an apartment property is $732,200. This represents a three per cent decrease from February 2022 and a 1.6 per cent increase compared to January 2023.
Attached home sales in February 2023 totalled 366, a 34.6 per cent decrease compared to the 560 sales in February 2022. The benchmark price of an attached unit is $1,038,500. This represents a 6.3 per cent decrease from February 2022 and a 1.8 per cent increase compared to January 2023.
