Vancouver Price Drop

Documenting Vancouver real estate price movements

West Vancouver Spotlight – August 26, 2012

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

Some Highlights

  • It takes a 20% drop to make this top 10 up from 19%, 19% and 15% the last three months
  • 2 of 9 listings with assessment information are now listed below assessment
  • #1 initially listed about 50% above assessment.  Now they are asking for below assessment…
  • #5 has an incomplete description…  Hey Brock Smeaton, it’s a 3 million dollar listing and it has been listed for about 100 days – fix the description!!!
  • Maybe #9’s realtor should purchase this place.  He says “The finest quality home I have ever seen in Lions Bay”.  Sounds a bit used car salesman-y
