Spring Update 2024

Every Spring, Vancouver’s forty thousand cherry trees burst into bloom. The blossoms are world-renowned and part of a six-phase cycle. But did you know the Vancouver Real Estate market also mirrors the gradual transition from buds to bloom?

Phase 1 - Buds (January)

January typically starts with buyer optimism. This year was no exception as buyers snapped up the limited inventory, and the market began showing signs of emerging from 2023’s slumber.

Phase 2 - Florets (February)

Inventory increased in February, but sales did not keep up.

Phase 3 - Extension Florets (Early March)

Buyers eagerly await quality listings, but sellers continue to hold out until the weather improves; the market shows signs of movement with the prospects of finding something to transition to improving.

Phase 4 - Peduncle Elongation (Spring Break)

The effects of Spring Break should not be underestimated. Like cherry trees needing sunshine, a dose of vitamin D, a break from routine, and some self-reflection work wonders for individuals and the real estate market.

Phase 5 - Fluffy White Petals (April)

By the time kids go back to school, the cherry blossoms will be in full bloom, and the Vancouver real estate market will be buzzing. Quality new listings will emerge, and buyers will feel more confident because of a more robust supply.

Phase 6 - Peak Bloom (Post Easter)

Just as the cherry trees reach their peak bloom, the Vancouver real estate market hits its stride. It’s a time of vibrant activity, where buyers and sellers come together in a flurry of excitement and opportunity. However, unlike the blossoms, Vancouver’s market peak bloom could last through the Summer and beyond.

So, as we enter the Spring Market, let’s savour the beauty of Vancouver’s cherry blossoms and get excited about a fruitful 2024. With interest rates stabilizing, we predict a healthy market and prolonged bloom. But if all of this is too flowery for you, check out the latest stats from the REBGV below.

Our team fuelled up at the new(ish) burger joint, Monzo, after a grueling sales meeting, and it was a feast to remember! This elevated fast food restaurant is inspired by the energy of the 80's Milanese youth movement.

Money Talk with Reza Sabour

Canada’s annual inflation rate fell to 2.8% in February, lower than the expected 3.1%, potentially pressuring the Bank of Canada to consider lowering interest rates sooner. Reza believes the lower-than-expected inflation data will pressure the Bank Of Canada to cut rates sooner, perhaps as soon as April. However, they may wait until June as more economic data around job numbers and wage growth are released over the Spring.
