The Average Sold Price is up strongly at over $22k.Our next chart plots the 3-month rolling average Trend for Pending Home Sales in Vancouver.

When thinking about home ownership, there is more to consider than the current interest rate.Stable Payments:A fixed-rate mortgage ensures stable monthly payments, offering financial stability as cost-of-living increases. This predictability is a significant advantage over renting, where payments can rise with inflation. Even with changes in taxes and insurance, the principal and interest payments remain the same.Tax Benefits:Deduct your Mortgage interest, insurance premiums, and property taxes may be tax-deductible, reducing your overall tax burden. Talk with your tax advisor to understand the specific benefits you can enjoy.Freedom to Renovate:You own it, paint it any color your heart desires! Whether you want to remodel the kitchen, add a new bathroom, or create a garden oasis, ownin...
