Conditions within the Metro Vancouver* housing market continued to strengthen in February as home sale and listing totals came in well above the region’s ten-year average for the month.

 

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential property sales in Greater Vancouver reached 3,061 on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in February 2015. This represents a 21 per cent increase compared to the 2,530 sales recorded in February 2014, and a 60 per cent increase compared to the 1,913 sales in January 2015.


Last month’s sales were 20.2 per cent above the 10-year sales average for the month.


“It’s an active and competitive marketplace today. Buyers are motivated and homes that are priced competitively are selling at a brisk pace right now,” Ray Harris, REBGV president, said.

New listings for detached, attached and apartment properties in Metro Vancouver totalled 5,425 in February. This represents a 15.4 per cent increase compared to the 4,700 new listings reported in February 2014.

Last month’s new listing count was 11.8 per cent higher than the region’s 10-year new listing average for the month.


The total number of properties currently listed for sale on the REBGV MLS® is 11,898, an 11.3 per cent decline compared to February 2014 and a 10.1 per cent increase compared to January 2015.


The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is currently $649,700. This represents a 6.4 per cent increase compared to February 2014.


The sales-to-active-listings ratio in February was 25.7 per cent. This is the highest that this ratio has been in Metro Vancouver since March 2011.


“We’re seeing more multiple offer situations and generally more traffic at open houses today,” Harris said. “In a market such as this, it’s important to do your homework and work with your local REALTOR® before embarking on your home buying and selling journey.”


Sales of detached properties in February 2015 reached 1,296, an increase of 25.6 per cent from the 1,032 detached sales recorded in February 2014, and an 84.1 per cent increase from the 704 units sold in February 2013.

The benchmark price of an apartment property increased 3 per cent from February 2014 to $386,500.


Attached property sales in February 2015 totalled 521, an increase of 11.8 per cent compared to the 466 sales in February 2014, and a 56.5 per cent increase from the 333 attached properties sold in February 2013.

Most Canadians aren’t aware that credit is not just a score or an ability to make payments on time, but is actually composed of a few different categories; hence, the five C’s of credit:

1. Credit shows the lender a snapshot of what the borrower’s repayment history has been over a period of time. This is the only way a lender can predict the borrower’s propensity to make future payments. The credit score is the primary measurement factor.

2. Capacity is the ability to repay loans. Arguably, this is the most critical of the five C’s of credit.  Lenders look at debt service ratios (total debt service and gross debt service), as well as payment history in order to assess a borrower’s capacity, or ability, to repay a loan. 

3. Capital is the amount of money that a borrower has invested in a property. It is otherwise known as a down payment. Lenders want to see how invested you are in a property before making a decision.  Loan-to-value is a measurement used to determine the amount of capital required as down payment, in addition to the rate and terms of the mortgage. 

4. Character can be described as a borrower’s general trustworthiness to repay loans. Factors such as length of employment and the borrower’s propensity to save and utilize credit responsibly all help to establish character.

5. Collateral can be thought of as additional security provided to the lender. The subject property itself – its value, location and characteristics – can be thought of as security, but collateral can also include outside parties that will guarantee the loan. These parties are often referred to as covenant partners.

The goal is to get a “YES” to your deal with a lender. The five C’s outlined above determine a borrower’s ability and willingness to make payments. Understanding what a lender is looking for allows you to set yourself up to put your best foot forward. If your investments are analyzed and planned correctly, every “YES” from your lender will bring your closer to achieving your goals.
