Condo HPI

For houses, the Housing Price Index (HPI) continued it's moderate decline at $7,500 below December stats and a total of $73,100 below August 2016's HPI peak.That's a decline in value of $14,620 per month since last August or a 4.9% decline in value since August's peak value. The number of sales in January was 44 compared to 47 in December and compared to the 245 sales reported at the peak last March. The average sales price for the 44 sales was $1.490M, compared to $1.564M in December and $1.985M at the sales price peak in October.

For White Rock area town homes, the HPI declined very slightly for the second month in a row. Only by $1,100 from December and by $11,900  since November's peak. That's a 2% decline in 2 months.The number of sales remained similar to December at 36 compared to 113 at last April's peak. The average sales price of the 36 sales reported increased to $657,808 from December's $624,056. But that's still below  last July's peak average sales price of $678,828. The percentage of the townhouse inventory selling declined as we would expect as more townhouses start to be listed for sale at this time of year....

Oh how we love dogs. We had a dog that my parents named "Jerk" back in the 60's. And we love dog and cat owners. A cat had us as care givers while we lived in Ocean Park.
So how am I helping dog owners find South Surrey and White Rock condos that are pet friendly? My earlier blog mentioned that our Board's MLS service database is limited. That's partly due to Strata councils not following any pet restriction conventions. One condo allows a small dog to a 10" height and the next condo allows dogs to a maximum 45 lbs weight etc. That's why I keep my own database of which condo allows pets based on their bylaw restrictions. But bylaws do change, so it's a never ending task to keep my list updated. So why do I do the updating? Because I love the excitement of helping my pet loving clients find and purchase their new condo. This Link shows condos for sale in the White Rock area that allow 2 dogs. Please note. Although a condo is shown as available, it could be that there is a pending sale already in place.
Give me a call when it's time to find your new pet friendly White Rock condo.
