The Vancouver East Detached House Market

Vancouver East Detached Homes are the hottest market in Vancouver Real Estate. This sentiment is supported by these statistics and the continued interest we’re seeing the market – sales doubled over this time last year while prices increased. The biggest challenge for us is finding our clients what they’re looking for, and getting it for a good price given some of the competition out there. Buyers, remember to keep an open mind – renovations can go a long way for East Vancouver Homes; location is still a big factor in pricing. Anything within a few blocks of Main St is still the most popular area, with Grandview, Hastings, and Fraser not far behind. Detached Homes in East Van saw an increase in their assessed values released last week, with almost all of the product selling between $700,000 and $1,750,000.
