Vancouver Condos Sales Dropped 2/3 | 溫哥華公寓買賣跳水式下滑:According to Sotheby’s International Realty Canada report:  $1 million-plus condos sales have plunged by 2/3 year over year.

There were only 86 condos sold on Jan and Feb 2019, compared to 254 units sold in 2018 (same period of time), that was a big dropped.

Overall, sales of $1 million-plus homes which included condos, townhome and houses fell 52% in the first 2 months of 2019, compared to 2018’s Jan and Feb, there were 576 sold.

In the Vancouver housing market, all houses are almost entirely over $1 million-plus, had seen steeper sales volume declines than the condo market, however, the slowdown seems to settle a bit.

The Sotheby’s report said, “The $1-2 million segments of the market saw the most activity, however. Sales experienced a 21% reduction.” Steeper year-over-year sales declines were seen in the market for homes between $2 million and $4 million, which saw a 48% drop.

In an interview, Brad Henderson – CEO of Sotheby’s International said that all types of properties are in the downdraft, but different property caught in the downdraft at a different time….. He also said:” The condo market was the asset choice for many buyers – 1st-time buyers, move-up buyers looking for a better location, and investors…Particularly Chinese investors, having a harder time to get the money out, plus buyer tax increase, all of this malaise among all the other buyer cohorts.”

Henderson observed that real estate cycles are both inevitable and self-fulfilling. He comments: In Vancouver, many people believe that in the down market the price can only go down; in the hot market the price can only go up. He reminds what goes up must come up.

根据苏富比国际地产加拿大公司3月20日发布的报告,温哥华公寓100万以上的销售额同比下降了66%。

2019年前两个月,溫哥華仅有86套公寓售价超过100万,而2018年同期为254套。

总体而言,2019年前两个月销售额超过100万的房屋(公寓,附属房屋和独立式住宅)下降了52%,售出279套房产,而2018年1月和2月的销售数量为576套。

温哥华的独立房屋几乎全部超过100万,销售量下降幅度高于公寓市场,但放缓似乎趋于平缓。

在2019年的前两个月,超过100万的独立式住宅销售下降了35%,销售量为146套,而去年同期售出的房屋数量为223套。

苏富比的报告称,然而,市场上1-2百万的市场活动最多。销售额下降了21%。200万至400万美元的房屋市场销售额同比下降幅度更大,下降了48%。

苏富比总裁兼首席执行官Brad Henderson在接受采访时表示,“所有不同类型的房产都陷入了同样的下降趋势,但是在不同的时间不同的物業價格下降…公寓市场多年来一直是首选; 有许多买家群体 – 首次购买者,寻求更好位置的买家,以及国内和海外投资者. 尤其是中国投资者,由於他们更难以从中国获得资金,再加上买家增税,这导致所有其他买家群体的整体萎靡不振。“

Henderson指出,房地产周期既是不可避免的,也是自我实现的。“我们被提醒過,上升的东西必须降下来,反之亦然。在温哥华,人们说只有一条路可走,那就是房價下降。但几年前,同样的谈话正在逆转。人们总是认为低迷市场的价格只会下降,而市场的上升只能继续上涨。“

他表示,2019年联邦预算案中提供的“适度”新购房者激励措施“不会显着推动市场发展。”
