• Greater Vancouver Detached Prices Are Rising, While Condos Are Falling

    The price of a typical home across Greater Vancouver is up from last year. REBGV’s composite benchmark price reached $1,044,000 in November, down 0.1% from the month before. Compared to the same month last year, this represents a 5.8% increase. Prices dropped $1,100 from the previous month, but are still higher than last year. REBGV also notes prices for the composite are still down -0.1% from three years ago. There is a highly unusual trend of divergence between segments though.
