Hey all, This is my first submission, mostly I lurk in the forum but read this site daily.
I just want to send out a big thank you to everyone who shares otherwise unavailable Vancouver housing market data here.
Watching the stats roll in day after day has been fascinating.
It’s amazing to watch the market change day by day, and the aggregate data provides an even clearer picture.
First of all of course there’s Paulb who’s been providing daily numbers for a long while. It’s thanks to Paul that we see the daily number of new listings, sold properties and have a total inventory count. Pauls website is here.
Then there’s VHB, who consistently posts analysis tracking the numbers through the month. Here’s his most recent post.
We have a new commenter going by the name of HFHC who has been providing other great stats including listing data for the entire lower mainland and a break down of sales by category.
Then there’s Inventory, who’s provided excellent number breakdowns for specific markets as seen in yesterdays post about the low June sales numbers.
And of course everyone else who provides such amazing data, analysis and comments. I started listing your handles, but the list went on and on and I knew I’d leave out some the best so I’m opting to just send out a big general thanks to ALL of you, you’re amazing.
