Sales have been steadily falling since March. In fact, the number of sold homes fell by 52% between March and July. As a result median prices fell by $60,000 in July. Inventory is still low compared to this time last year. Currently, we can see strength in the Westside condo and townhouse market from $400,000 up to $1,250,000. Overall, the Westside condo market is one of the only markets favouring sellers with 22% of homes sold last month, The communities with the most activity continue to be Kitsilano and Fairview. The median sale price which peaked at over $1M in February, is now sitting at $909,000. This median price is around $50,000 more than the median price this time last year. The condo market should continue to cool down as inventory continues to increase and the number of sold homes fall.
