Spotlight: 5 New North Shore Apartment Listings

June 3, 2017 | On The Market | By Matt Council

Inventory has crept lower to 160 units this week after sales outpaced new listing (NV 112/WV 48).  Total new listings to market since Monday included 30 listings in North Vancouver and 4 in West Vancouver.

Looking at May numbers for North Vancouver, statistics validate the limited supply and frothy market.  While total sales transactions were in line with last year (down only 6.3%), inventory was down a whopping 35.5% year-over-year.  With a turnover rate (sales:active listings) of 1.14, meaning there were more sales than listings brough to market in the month of May, median and average sale prices were up an astonishing 38.9% and 32.1% respectively year over year.  I buyers remain in the market and current demand levels continue, expect a squeeze into the summer market as inventory typically continues to lower into the summer months.
