What’s Happening in the Kitsilano Condo Market? 

Condos in Kitsilano showed quite a bit of interest, and unlike many other areas of town – we saw 10% average decline in price. There were more than twice the sales in February compared to the previous month, and an increase in listings as well. Interestingly, the sub-$425,000 market and the $600,000 to $1,000,000 market’s performed best with at least 28% sales to active ratio (a Seller’s Market), where the $425,000 to $600,000 price bracket was sitting at 11% (a Buyer’s Market). This difference explains a median price of $415,500, and an average price is $495,609. Much of this is due to a lack of inventory in the mid range market, however, it could indicate some potential Buyers looking elsewhere for their second home. Come summer, we should see strong numbers in each price bracket.
