Sep 27, 2018

Each quarter, rennie Intelligence provides a Multi-family Pricing Update based on the latest data sourced from Urban Analytics' NHS Live database. The data presented are price per square foot (PPSF) averages for concrete, woodframe, and townhomes combined, based on the date of each project's first home sale.

Data highlights

  • Pre-sale projects in Greater Vancouver that have launched in 2018 (through July) have sold at an average PPSF of $848, versus a 2017 year-end average of $826.
  • The highest average PPSF achieved through April 2018 was in Downtown Vancouver, at $3,037 (down from $3,300 in Q2 2018), while lowest was in Abbotsford at $436.

What this means for youPredictably, there is a distinct price gradient, from high to low, emanating outwards from the Downtown Core. And while PPSF continues to rise throughout the region, there are good value options within a multitude of transit notes (including Surrey City Centre) and along rapid/frequent transit corridors (for example, along with the new Evergreen Line).

the victoria rennie review | May 2024
Like its larger neighbour across the Salish Sea, the Greater Victoria market was defined by flat sales, a sharp spike in new listings, and supply conditions that have eased to levels not seen in several years.

the kelowna rennie review | May 2024
A large rise in total sales in April wasn’t enough to mask broader softness in the Central Okanagan market, which has been especially weak from a per-capita perspective. The flipside is above average inventory and a range of options that buyers haven’t seen in years.
