North Vancouver approves new brewery district for Lonsdale

A sizeable area near the City of North Vancouver’s Lonsdale waterfront has been designated as the region’s newest brewery cluster.

The market has corrected in North Vancouver.

Detached supply-and-demand we have 433 for sale40 houses sold in November.

The graph shows that there’s still a wide gap between listings and solds our months of inventory is 11 months which puts us in a buyers market we have 40 sold now the previous month there were 69 and 2 properties over the $3.0M dollar mark sold in November homes sold over the $3.0M price range – and previous month was 5.

The average sold price is $1,743,537 homes are selling for approximately 93% of their list price last month was 95%. Average days on market is 46 compared to the previous month of 39 so we’re seeing bigger discounts and longer days on market.

There are 68 homes over the $3.0M mark currently listed for sale in North Vancouver and the hot three neighbourhoods starting with number 3 is:

This is 2 months in a row where Canyon Heights has been in the top 3.

And for the North Vancouver attached market, that’s condos and townhomes:

Supply and demand we’ve got 411 properties for sale that’s down from the previous month and 98 properties sold. Our months of inventory for attached ins for 4 months which puts us back into a balanced market for condos.

And the attached snapshot we have for North Vancouver we’ve got 98 properties sold 16 of those properties are priced at $1,000,000 or higher now that’s lower than November 2017 one year ago but it’s consistent with the September trend we’ve have here in 2018 September, October, November all around the same number 16.

So where are the opportunities in this market?

Buyers clearly have an advantage in the detached market and all knows those who are moving up the property ladder in this market will do particularly well. Selection is good and the gap between different property segments is narrower than it’s been in a very long time. Selection is good and prices are good.
