Is this the best time to upgrade from a Vancouver condo for a house?

For years, the gap between the price of a condo and a house has widened in Metro Vancouver. In 2005, the difference in prices was around $350 thousand and by 2016 it had reached $1.1 million. Recently that has changed.

In the past year, detached home prices have flattened or drifted downward in Vancouver while condo prices have surged so the price gap between the two has narrowed. At the end of this article we explain our belief that now may be the best time to trade in your condo or townhome for a detached home.

The benefit of trust in a business relationship

Studies have shown that above all, consumers want a mortgage broker and real estate agent they can trust.

People want transparency and for their professional advisors to help them make decisions about financing, choosing a home, and any document they sign. They also want their professionals to get them the best value for their money.

Buyers also want an honest assessment of market conditions, so they can set realistic home price expectations.

The last thing people want to hear is “buyer beware”. Professionals these days are held to a higher industry standard and people expect more of their advisors in the 21st century.
