Strong December activity brought Metro Vancouver’s* 2020 home sales total in line with the region’s long-term annual average.


The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 30,944 in 2020, a 22.1 per cent increase from the 25,351 sales recorded in 2019, and a 25.7 per cent increase from the 24,619 homes sold in 2018.


Last year’s sales total was 2.8 per cent below the 10-year sales average.


“When the pandemic began in March, the housing market came to a near standstill. We knew, however, that shelter needs don’t go away in times of crisis, they intensify," Colette Gerber, REBGV Chair said. “The real estate community worked closely with our regulatory bodies and public health officials in the spring to ensure appropriate precautions and protocols were implemented so BC REALTORS® could help residents safely meet their housing needs."


Home listings on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in Metro Vancouver reached 54,305 in 2020. This is a 4.6 per cent increase compared to the 51,918 homes listed in 2019 and a 1.3 per cent increase compared to the 53,614 homes listed in 2018.


Last year’s listings total was 2.7 per cent below the region’s 10-year average.


“After adapting to the COVID-19 environment, local home buyer demand and seller supply returned at a steady pace throughout the summer, fall and winter seasons," Gerber said. "Shifting housing needs and low interest rates were key drivers of this activity in 2020. Looking ahead, the supply of homes for sale will be a critical factor in determining home price trends in 2021.”


The MLS® HPI composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver ends the year at $1,047,400. This is a 5.4 per cent increase compared to December 2019.


The benchmark price for apartments increased 2.6 per cent in the region last year. Townhomes increased 4.9 per cent and detached homes increased 10.2 per cent.


December Summary


REBGV reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 3,093 in December 2020, a 53.4 per cent increase from the 2,016 sales recorded in December 2019, and a 0.9 per cent increase from the 3,064 homes sold in November 2020.


Last month’s sales were 57.7 per cent above the 10-year December sales average and is the highest total for the month on record.


“Robust December sales outpaced long-term averages in what’s traditionally the quietest month of the year in real estate. This was part of an unusual seasonal pattern the market followed last year, which can be attributed in large part to the pandemic,” Gerber says.


There were 2,409 detached, attached and apartment properties newly listed for sale on the MLS® in Metro Vancouver in December 2020. This represents a 51.7 per cent increase compared to the 1,588 homes listed in December 2019 and a 40.8 per cent decrease compared to November 2020 when 4,068 homes were listed.


The total number of homes currently listed for sale on the MLS® system in Metro Vancouver is 8,538, a 0.8 per cent decrease compared to December 2019 (8,603) and a 23.2 per cent decrease compared to November 2020 (11,118).


For all property types, the sales-to-active listings ratio for December 2020 is 36.2 per cent. By property type, the ratio is 35.2 per cent for detached homes, 50.4 per cent for townhomes, and 33.1 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 2020 reached 1,026, a 71.3 per cent increase from the 599 detached sales recorded in December 2019. The benchmark price for detached homes is $1,554,600. This represents a 10.2 per cent increase from December 2019 and a one per cent increase compared to November 2020.


Sales of apartment homes reached 1,474 in December 2020, a 40 per cent increase compared to the 1,053 sales in December 2019. The benchmark price of an apartment property is $676,500. This represents a 2.6 per cent increase from December 2019 and is unchanged from November 2020.


Attached home sales in December 2020 totalled 593, a 62.9 per cent increase compared to the 364 sales in December 2019. The benchmark price of an attached home is $813,900. This represents a 4.9 per cent increase from December 2019 and a 0.1 per cent decrease compared to November 2020.

Your front walkway is one of the first sections of real estate a buyer will set foot on when coming to see your home. So, it makes sense to make that pathway to your front door as appealing as possible.


The obvious way is to make it as clean and clear as you can. Ensure there are no obstacles in the way, such as overhanging branches, kid's toys, or potted plants. What you want is a clear, unobstructed and pleasant walk to your main entranceway.


If your walkway needs deeper cleaning, consider a powerwash. There are special detergents available that are designed specifically for stone, asphalt or cement walkways and other outdoor surfaces.


A deep cleaning isn't a major project. In most cases, the job can be done within an hour. Yet, the result can be stunning.


If you're selling in the spring or summer, another way to make your walkway look better is to add flowers or other plants along the sides. Don't overdo it. You only need a few flowers or a couple of shrubs to make a big difference.


The great thing about adding a few flowers or shrubs is the impact they can have on your entire frontage making it more attractive, and adding to your home's overall curb appeal.


Making your walkway look better may seem minor, but keep in mind that when buyers make their way to your front door, they're forming their first and often most important impression of your property. The walkway plays a small but important role in making it a good one.


Want more ideas for making your home show better, so it sells quicker and for a higher price? Call me.

When you think about selling your property, do you dwell on the possible work and stress involved? You're not alone. Many homeowners share the same concerns.


But it doesn't have to be that way.


In fact, there are plenty of ways to add some fun, anticipation, and even a sense of adventure to the selling process. Here are just a few ideas:


  1. Plan fun things to do when your home is being shown. That can include walks, sports activities, or trying something you and your family have never done before.
  2. Declutter for your own benefit. Instead of thinking about decluttering as a chore required for the sale, focus instead on how much more comfortable your home will be after decluttering. Studies consistently show that less clutter reduces stress and increases a sense of well-being.
  3. Get everyone in your home anticipating the move in a positive way. Put pictures of your next home, including neighbourhood shots, on the fridge door. Sit together on the computer and explore your new neighbourhood's features and amenities.
  4. Celebrate milestones in the selling process. For example, when you're finished preparing your property for sale, go out to celebrate. Make a checklist of milestones and how you'll celebrate each one.
  5. Get the help you need. A big part of the stress of selling is the anticipated work involved. Remember, you don't have to do it all yourself. Much of what needs to be done can be handled by contractors and other professionals. 


There are many other ways to make selling your home a positive and turbulent-free experience. Give me a call if you'd like more ideas and suggestions.

Don’t get discouraged if your property hasn’t sold during its first appearance on the market.  Your home may actually have been one of the most appealing listings of its kind—and the reasons it didn’t sell may have nothing to do with the property itself or the market.  Rather, a number of separate factors may have influenced the outcome.  Take a step back, break your original selling method into parts, and allow yourself time to evaluate each one.  Make a commitment.  Establish a new approach.  Stick to it.  A reassessment of your system, and a shift in perspective, may be just what you need to realize your ultimate goals in the sale of your home. 

If your listing has expired, you will usually find weakness in one of the following areas:


  1. 1.      Appearance and Condition of your Property

When preparing your home to show to buyers, always remember:  the decision to buy a home is one coloured primarily by emotion, not logic.  Every buyer has different ideas of what “Dream Home” means to them.  Of course, your home won’t appeal to every buyer’s palate.  But, how prepared are you?  Is your home inspiration-worthy?  Have you prepared each room with the goal that it leave a lasting impression?  Have you cultivated ambiance?  For example, when a buyer stands in your kitchen, will she warm to the thought of drinking coffee at the table every morning?  Does the décor in the master bedroom inspire feelings of comfort and relaxation?  You should make every effort to make you home appear inviting and appealing.  This means covering all the bases: 

  • Take care of any general repairs needed.
  • Tidy away the clutter; every room should appear well-ordered and neat
  • Maintain a strict level of cleanliness while showing.  Everything should be clean, from shelves to carpets to furniture.  While you may no longer notice that wine stain on the rug, it could be the first thing a potential buyer sees when she walks into the room.
  • Increase the brightness and warmth in your home:  open curtains, turn on the lights, put out flowers, play soothing background music.
  • Don’t forget the exterior of the house.  Concentrate on the “curb appeal” of your home.  What impression will a buyer get when s/he first pulls into the driveway?  Keep the lawn well-groomed and the rest of the property tidy.
  • Assess any major decorating or renovation projects that your property could be in need of.  If your home could use a new paint-job, for example, consider taking care of this yourself, rather than offering a repair allowance to prospective buyers.  Don’t leave such changes to their imagination—if they are looking at run-down walls, chances are they will incorporate this flawed experience of your house into the price they’ll be willing to pay.  Ultimately, you’re better off checking these projects off the list before showing your home.


A house that is showcased well and offers a lasting impression will sell for the best price, going a step beyond the competition.  Be sure to see if your agent will put together a no-obligation examination of your home to assist you in looking at the factors we’ve mentioned.


  1. 2.      Pricing

The market value of your home is based on the price a willing prospect will pay, as well as the price a willing seller will accept.  Pricing your home too high can be as financially dangerous as pricing it too low.  Keep in mind, your listing does not include the price you paid originally for your home.  Often, sellers include this original price—or the amount of money they’ve invested in their home so far—into their selling price equation.  This mistake may prove to be a costly one.  Pricing your home too high can result in prospective buyers rejecting your home for larger homes listed at the same price.  Ask yourself:  did your price work for you or against you?  The “right” price balances upon a combination of:  competition within the market, the condition of the market, and the state of your home.

Request an up-to-date market analysis from your agent to help give you an idea of what an appropriate asking price for your home might be.  This market analysis should give you an idea of the competition involved in the current market, offering an assessment of homes similar to your own that have recently sold or are currently on the market.  It should also show you how long other homes have been listed, in order to give you an idea of the average amount of time you can expect a home to stay on the market.  And it should indicate the homes with expired listings, to help you glean some understanding of the reasons why this might occur.


  1. 3.      Marketing and Communication

Your marketing plan begins with choosing the right realtor for your home-selling needs.  The realtor you choose should be committed to selling your property, ensuring your home is marketed and showcased in the most effective way possible.  So, when interviewing agents, it’s a good idea to ask them to give you a rundown of the marketing strategy they would use to sell your home.  Investigate and compare how much money each realtor spends on advertising a property and the types of media s/he employs.  How effective is each brand of advertising? 

Your real estate agent should recognize the most effective marketing strategy for the unique offerings of your home.  S/he should also articulate to you the most direct marketing route to the largest pool of potential buyers.  Be wary of agents who rely on outdated advertising strategies.  The most successful agents on the market today are those who employ current, innovative marketing techniques.  These are the agents you can rely on to have the skills and tools required to sell your home fast and for top dollar.


  1. 4.      Operating as a Team

Communication between you and your realtor is essential.  Your realtor should listen to your needs and goals, and be able to translate these into an active, effective home-selling strategy.  Once this strategy has been put into play, you should receive detailed, up-to-date feedback on the status of the sale.  Your realtor should be actively involved in every showing, speaking to agents who have shown your home, and relaying this information to you.  You should be able to work together to build an effective strategy and alter the course if need be.  Evaluate the relationship you had with your realtor while your home was on the market.  Did you feel as though your realtor involved you every step of the way?  Were you given the information you needed to stay on top of progress?  Did your realtor listen to your wishes and concerns and act upon them?
