 Although the current condition in the Greater Vancouver real estate is still attractive to the first-time home buyers, one must remember that this current state of home prices won’t be there forever.

 

We participate in a cyclical market. Therefore, first-time buyers who have been eyeing an opportunity to own a home should take time to find out how they can make use of the benefits of being a home owner.

 

In the last couple of months, we have been seeing a greater level of interest from first-time buyers.

 

Some of the reasons why they continue to get attracted are:

 

 

  1. Very low interest rates
  2. Affordability (in home prices)
  3. Great savings by availing government incentives for first-time buyers

 

In the long run, home buyers could see the value of acting upon their decision to be a home owner.

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – (http://iclickproperty.com/prepare-to-own-a-home/?p=82)

In a news release posted by the The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) on

May 4, 2009, the housing market has come to a more even balanced state. This indicates that there are more buyers who show participation in the market while we see lesser number of home sellers.

The increase in demand by the buyers is beginning to be more apparent.

And if this activity continues and there are only few participating sellers around, this could help Greater Vancouver home prices become more stable.

How are we coping in the market? An Update from January to Mid-February

The opening of the year 2009 in the real estate industry may not be as strong as the previous years, but those who are in the market to keep it going are surely positive that we will get by; and certainly reap the rewards in time.

It was good to learn that in January of this year, the local board (Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver) reports (through the Board’s President W. Dave Watt) that thirty eight (38) sales  are posted a day across the Greater Vancouver board and seventy seven (77) sales a day as of mid of February.

This is an indication that the market is getting there. despite  this struggling economy we are experiencing today.

It may seem slow, but homebuyers could actually contemplate and see the potential in shopping for properties offered at a much lower price.

Apparently, the opportunity is knocking on doors of homebuyers, specifically first-time buyers. Interest rates are low; “so why not strike while the iron is hot? (goes a popular idiom)

Homebuyers should take advantage of favorable conditions available to them.

First-time buyers or other individuals who may want to consult about the best options they might have,  may inquire by email.
