Quick Snapshot at some stats that aren't as boring as you would think!

Of course the broad numbers never tell the full story as the Greater Vancouver housing market is made up of many diverse individual markets. To demonstrate that point, a look at some notable regional prices.

  • The typical price of a single-family home on Vancouver’s East Side jumped 12% year-over-year in November to $957,300
  • Detached home values shot up on the West Side of the city too. The benchmark price went from $2,095,500 in November 2013 to $2,323,300 last month, an 11% increase
  • After falling sharply a number of years ago, the Whistler condo market continues to recover with the benchmark price climbing 26.5% year-over-year in November to $240,900 (but this is still down -29.6% from where prices were five years ago during the buildup to the Olympics)
  • The benchmark price for all property types in West Vancouver ended November at $1,671,100, the highest of any market in the region. (On the West Side of Vancouver proper the benchmark price for all property types is $867,900.)
  • The typical price of a condo in Port Coquitlam is only $229,900, it’s one of the region’s most affordable markets
