The Kitsilano Detached Market was slow in January, with only 2 sales despite higher inventory. The sales were two very different properties – with one being a four unit investment home, and the other being a single family home. Every home is priced above $1.4-million, with at least 9 units currently for sale for over $3-million. Note that the stats in the above chart are incorrect for January 2014. The median price should be closer to $2-million, and it should state only 9 sales occurring in that time period. This market is fairly resilient and will increase as the weather warms up.
