Documenting Vancouver real estate price movements

Here are the top 10 properties currently listed in Vancouver West with the largest overall drop in asking price since early March

Some Highlights

  • It now takes a 22% drop to make this top 10 up from 20% the previous two months
  • Last month the #1 drop was 29% and this week we have 4 properties at 34% or worse
  • 2 new homes on the list
  • 3 of the 8 homes with assessment info are listed below assessment
  • The 42 year old home on West 64th that is currently $1.298M and assessed at $1.107M is apparently, and I quote from the listing, “BEST PRICE EVER!!!”.  When the truth doesn’t work just make stuff up
