Home listings increase while buyers remain in holding pattern

Home listings continue to increase across all housing categories in the Metro Vancouver housing market while home buyer activity remains below historical averages.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 1,103 in January 2019, a 39.3 per cent decrease from the 1,818 sales recorded in January 2018, and a 2.9 per cent increase from the 1,072 homes sold in December 2018.

Last month’s sales were 36.3 per cent below the 10-year January sales average and were the lowest January-sales total since 2009.

“REALTORS® are seeing more traffic at open houses compared to recent months, however, buyers are choosing to remain in a holding pattern for the time being,” Phil Moore, REBGV president said.

There were 4,848 detached, attached and apartment homes newly listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in Metro Vancouver in January 2019. This represents a 27.7 per cent increase compared to the 3,796 homes listed in January 2018 and a 244.6 per cent increase compared to the 1,407 homes listed in December 2018.

The total number of homes currently listed for sale on the MLS® system in Metro Vancouver is 10,808, a 55.6 per cent increase compared to January 2018 (6,947) and a 5.2 per cent increase compared to December 2018 (10,275).

For all property types, the sales-to-active listings ratio for January 2019 is 10.2 per cent. By property type, the ratio is 6.8 per cent for detached homes, 11.9 per cent for townhomes, and 13.6 per cent for condominiums.

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

“Home prices have edged down across all home types in the region over the last seven months,” Moore said.

The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential homes in Metro Vancouver is currently $1,019,600. This represents a 4.5 per cent decrease over January 2018, and a 7.2 per cent decrease over the past six months.

“Economic fundamentals underpinning our market for home buyers and sellers remain strong. Today’s market conditions are largely the result of the mortgage stress test that the federal government imposed at the beginning of last year,” Moore said. “This measure, coupled with an increase in mortgage rates, took away as much as 25 per cent of purchasing power from many home buyers trying to enter the market.”

Sales of detached homes in January 2019 reached 339, a 30.4 per cent decrease from the 487 detached sales recorded in January 2018. The benchmark price for detached homes is $1,453,400. This represents a 9.1 per cent decrease from January 2018, and an 8.3 per cent decrease over the past six months.

Sales of apartment homes reached 559 in January 2019, a 44.8 per cent decrease compared to the 1,012 sales in January 2018. The benchmark price of an apartment property is $658,600. This represents a 1.7 per cent decrease from January 2018, and a 6.6 per cent decrease over the past six months.

Attached home sales in January 2019 totalled 205, a 35.7 per cent decrease compared to the 319 sales in January 2018. The benchmark price of an attached unit is $800,600. This represents a 0.5 per cent decrease from January 2018, and a 6.2 per cent decrease over the past six months.

Эфир 16 Сентября на Радио Вера в Ванкувере


Краткое содержание утренней передачи "Наш Дом"на Радио Вера.

Олег Царёв: -Наша передача не только образовательная, её задача чтобы радиослушатели вышли на новый уровень мышления. На уровень понимания того, что владение собственной недвижимости является самой первой необходимостью, проживая в Ванкувере.

 Вопросы поступившие от наших радиослушателей после проведения посдеднего эфира:

  1. Какие расходы покупатель несёт при покупке дома – Налог На Покупку/Property Transfer Tax, Услуги Нотариуса и Риэлтора, прерасчёт Utilities и Property Tax и конечно страховка. !!!Покупайте страховку на дом обязательно до встречи и подписания документов с вашим нотариусом, то есть до completion date – очень важно это запланировать зараннее. - подробности
  2. Что такое depreciation report спрашивают радиослушатели – это план и бюджет предстоящих ремонтов на ближайшие 30 лет. В 2011 появились новые требования вынуждающие страты проводить полную инспекцию технического состояния дома каждые 3 года. Жильцы могут проголосовать 3/4голосов против проведения такой инспекции или в случае когда в страте 4 или меньше страта лотов/квартир/таунхаузов, они так же могут отказаться. Но почему отсутствие этого репорта негативно сказывается на продажу такой квартиры - подробности
  3. Отсутствие жилья в аренду, низкий vacancy rate, и безумно высокие постоянно растущие цены на жильё, вынудило всё таки принять решение о введении в Ванкувере vacant home taxes к 2017, как заявил вчера мэр города Грэгори Робертсон. Налог составит 0,5-2% от городской оценки жилья. Принимая во внимание наличия около 5% пустующих домов в Ванкувере, то генерируемая сумма составит около $2 млн ежегодно. Все деньги будут направлены на постройку и обслуживание субсидированного жилья. Если вы постоянно проживающие в своём жилье, сдаёте в аренду или, если в этой недвижимости проживают ваши родственники, то вы не облагаетесь налогом. Наверняка возникнет вопрос у тех кто занимается строительством и ждёт buildong permit или те кто занимается flippping и ремонтами жилья – тоже нет – не облагаетесь – only empty year-roundyear after year. Как будут проверять? – randomly – запросом документов с Revenue Canada, health cards, driver's licence...

Фраза сегодняшнего дня: "Vancouver is unaffordable because of the disconnect between local incomes and local house prices"

Студенты готовят петицию, пытаясь добиться изменения существующих правил не разрешающих строительства домов университетами для студентов. Требования студентов направлены на то, чтобы правительство разрешило высшим учебным заведениям провинции брать ссуды на строительство комплексов в которых аренда квартир будет гораздо ниже рыночной.

Напомним, что недавно провинция Британская Колумбия ввела 15 % налог на покупку жилья иностранцами. Несмотря на это, в августе 2016 года цены на дома и квартиры в мегаполисе выросли на 1,7% по сравнению с июлем и на 25,8% по сравнению с годом ранее...

Не все инвесторы или не резиденты вкладывают деньги для отмывания или надёжной парковки своих денежных средств. Например, приезжают покупатели, которые приобретают жильё в пределах 300К ценовой категории для своих детей, которые собираются учиться в Капилано университете, UBC и других высших учебных заведениях и налог на 300К составит 45К. Anyone who fails to pay the tax, or who provides incorrect information to avoid the tax, could face fines up to $100,000 or two years in prison - подробности

Покупаем Абботсфорд. Abbotsford highrise 70% sold – Mahogany с геотермической системой отопления и охлаждения.



B.C. economist says price of Metro Vancouver houses will keep climbing. 27 Сентября 2016


На сегодняшний день спрос на дома и квартиры в Ванкувере не упал, а даже наоборот - повысился. Цены на дома, дуплексы и таунхаузы не выросли с 12 Августа этого года - с момента введения 15% налога на покупку инострааными резидентами - но на квартиры... резко пошли вверх. Чем это обусловлено -звоните и обсудим вместе. Что ждёт рынок жилья Ванкувера на ближайшие 4 месяца - звоните Олегу Царёву - ведущему Риэлтору Ванкувера - 1-604-719-4490. Что же пишет медиа о ситуации на рынке.

VICTORIA — Metro Vancouver house prices will more than double over the next 25 years, as supply continues to be tight and more people move to the region, a senior B.C. economist predicts.

Helmut Pastrick, chief economist with Central 1 Credit Union, said Metro’s housing market has taken a hit with the recent 15-per-cent foreign buyers’ tax, but demand for property will likely rise in the long term because there is little room to expand in geographically constrained Metro and a million more people are expected to move here by 2041.

This demand will likely worsen affordability and force more young people to rent for longer, he added, as incomes won’t rise at the same pace. Metro Vancouver home prices have ballooned in recent years: Just recently, a “student” flipped a Point Grey property for a $1.6-million profit within a year.

“We just have a shortage of land,” Pastrick told delegates at the annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention Tuesday. “As long as we have ongoing growth, we will see increased demand for housing. I think it will be a national and global development as well.”

Pastrick maintains such cycles aren’t new, noting there have been constant rises and dips in B.C.’s housing market, with a series of recessions since 1957 in which prices dropped between 10 per cent and 35 per cent.

Pastrick said he couldn’t predict when the next recession will strike, but wouldn’t be surprised if, in the meantime, the provincial government considers other measures to cool the market. This could include requiring higher down payments for first-time homebuyers or a gradual increase in interest and mortgage rates.

“This cycle will come to an end, but affordability will worsen,” he said. “Someone once said ‘they don’t make land anymore.’ We will see more renters than we do today, largely because of the unaffordability.”

High house prices are crushing the young demographic’s dreams in this province

Paul Kershaw, associate professor at UBC’s School of Population and Public Health, said interest rates should be increased. They are helping to fuel the sluggish economy, he said, but the availability of cheap cash is driving up housing prices across B.C.

He and UBC’s Thomas Davidoff have a more controversial suggestion to cool the market: increase taxes for older homeowners — most likely seniors — who have paid off their homes and accumulated wealth in those properties.

The idea concerns North Saanich Mayor Alice Finall, who said many of her residents are already “house poor” and “a higher tax may make it impossible for them to stay in their home.”

Kershaw acknowledged such a tax may be unpopular, but said people over 55 can defer taxes until they sell.

Meanwhile, it would take the average young person in Metro Vancouver 15 years to save enough for a down payment, and that would likely only be enough for a condo.

“High house prices are crushing the young demographic’s dreams in this province,” he said.

He also suggested the province should cut income taxes, provide more rental accommodation and reduce the cost of child care, parental leave and transit so that young families aren’t having to take out a second mortgage to care for their children.

Davidoff, meanwhile, said the province should go beyond Vancouver’s vacancy tax and insist that all B.C. homes that are not used as a primary residence face a higher tax. Politicians also have to get tougher with zoning practices, he added noting that they hold public hearings for one-off rezonings and end up bowing to residents who want to keep luxury single-family homes in places like Vancouver’s west side, which results in renovictions in other places where there is weaker opposition, such as Vancouver’s east side.

Davidoff added the province should also dictate to municipalities how many apartments, townhouses and single-family houses they need, so municipalities can set “targets” for themselves, as well as tell developers what to build.

“Over time, this challenge isn’t going to go away, it’s going to be exacerbated.”
