Vancouver real estate is one of 2017’s pleasant surprises. Originally predicted to drop in the later half of the year, the market for the region has proved its resiliency. Sky-rise properties dominate Vancouver’s real estate market. Condominium prices have increased by 2.2%– and the trends note that they could continue to increase. This is in contrast towards similar Vancouver markets. New Zealand and Australia, after experiencing a peak in their respective real estate markets, have noted a significant ‘cooling’ after the said peak.
