Metro Vancouver home sales set an all-time record in 2015
VANCOUVER, B.C. – January 5, 2016 – In a year when the number of homes listed for sale
was below historical averages, actual home sales in Metro Vancouver set a new record.
The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that 2015 home sales were the
highest annual total in REBGV history. This was powered early in the year by four straight
months with more than 4,000 sales a month from March to June, another first for REBGV.
Sales of detached, attached and apartment properties in 2015 reached 42,326, a 27.8 per cent
increase from the 33,116 sales recorded in 2014, and a 48.4 per cent increase over the 28,524
residential sales in 2013.
