As expected, Lower Mainland Real Estate sales are up over 45% from Oct 2018. This represents the 4th consecutive month of sales growth. The active sales to listing ratio is now up to 29% ( well into a sellers market). Prices month over month are also up. The latest Vancouver rental rates show that an average 1 bedroom condo is now renting for $2200 month and 2 bedrooms are at $3175 a month. As I have been saying for the last 9 years on my blog .. if you're planning on living and working in Vancouver for the long term i.e. minimum 9 years or more. You need to be an owner not a lifetime renter.
