大溫哥華豪宅現狀 | Luxury Housing Market Vancouver 2019 – How’s the Vancouver housing market in 2019; the answer is simple – buyer’s market – especially in luxury homes – a new release report by Engel & Völkers.

According to the Vancouver Real Estate Board’s data, overall sales dropped 46.3%, which is the lowest sales since 1986; on the other hand, MLS Vancouver inventory increase to the historic high level.

Conversely, the total number of listings in April, buoyed by low sales numbers, climbed by 46.2% in April compared to last year, and these conditions pushed down the benchmark price in the city by 8.4% over the same period in 2018.

But these same conditions that have caused prices to fall may also open up housing ownership opportunities to a segment of prospective homebuyers later this year.

“With buyers holding on the sidelines creating less demand, sellers are reacting by adjusting prices down to sell in a buyer’s market. This increase in affordability, coupled with steady interest and mortgage rates, may help boost the market this spring,” reads the report.

However, younger prospective homebuyers hoping to pass the heightened mortgage stress test are struggling to overcome the new requirements, and this has negatively affected the demand of Vancouver’s once-robust housing market.

“We’re seeing millennial buyers apply for mortgages, but struggling to secure them due to the mortgage stress test. Some are finding their way around the test limitations by turning to their families for financial assistance and engaging parents and grandparents as co-signers,” the report continues.

“Interestingly, and in contrast to the ‘avocado toast’ theory, millennials are showing more responsible financial behaviors and creating savings, willing to forgo certain luxuries like cars in order to make first-home purchases.”

The report notes that its analysts expect fixed mortgage rates to fall in the next two quarters, which may potentially help boost home sales later this year.

The most expensive prime location for real estate remains West Vancouver, followed by the waterfront areas of West Point Grey in Vancouver and downtown Vancouver.

When it comes to secondary ski, ocean, and recreational properties in Whistler, Sun Peaks, Big White, and on Vancouver Island, recent taxation changes on such properties are beginning to have a significant impact on these secondary homes.

Vancouver Realtor Chen’s opinion: Housing Market back to normal which is a good sign for local. Everybody wants to make some money in the real estate market, but the market has already made everybody become deal makers or flippers since 2015 – if the market keeps increasing crazily, the young generation would never found their affordable homes.

 


大溫哥華豪宅現狀: Engel&Völkers今天發布的一份新報告已經確定大溫哥華地區的住房市場已經轉變為買方市場 – 尤其是豪華住宅市場。

根據行業數據,3月份溫哥華的整體房地產銷售額比本月的10年銷售額平均值下降了46.3%,這恰好是自1986年以來的最低水平。

相反,由於銷售數字較低,4月份的房地產房源上市總數與去年同期相比上升了46.2%,這些情況使得該市的基準價格比2018年同期下降了8.4%。其實不止8.4%啦, 如果其他商業機構做出來的報告, 這個數值絕對會高很多。

但導致價格下跌的同樣條件也可能在今年晚些時候為一部分未來的購房者開放住房所有權機會。

由於買家持觀望態度創造需求減少,賣家正在通過調整價格來降低買方市場的賣出價。這種可負擔性的增加,加上穩定的利息和抵押貸款利率,可能有助於推動今年春天的市場,“報告中寫道。

然而,希望通過加強抵押貸款壓力測試的年輕預期購房者正在努力克服新的要求,這對溫哥華曾經強勁的住房市場的需求產生了負面影響。

“我們看到千禧一代的買家申請抵押貸款,但由於貸款壓力測試而努力爭取抵押貸款。一些人通過向家人尋求經濟援助以及讓父母和祖父母成為共同簽名者來找到解決測試限制的方法,“報告仍在繼續。

“有趣的是,與’鱷梨吐司’理論相反,千禧一代正在展示更負責任的金融行為並創造儲蓄,願意放棄像汽車這樣的奢侈品,以便進行首次購房。”

報告指出,其分析師預計未來兩個季度的固定抵押貸款利率將下降,這可能有助於推動今年晚些時候的房屋銷售。

目前,越來越多的年輕購房者一直在尋找替代性住房市場 – 更多經濟適用房市場以及城市和郊區,如本拿比,蘭利,薩里和三角洲。

“發展中地區的共管公寓和附屬住宅市場繼續保持強勁勢頭。隨著獨立式住宅價格的上漲,不斷增長的細分市場正在尋找價格適中但宜居的家庭住宅,“報告補充說。
