Housing- safe & stable...


Because the mainstream media can often mislead borrowers with its doom-and-gloom headlines regarding the Canadian housing and mortgage industries, as well as consumer debt, it’s important to get the facts straight from the mortgage brokering industry.

    The Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals (CAAMP) released a new report in mid-February on employment impacts of housing and related mortgage activity that describes the impact of jobs in Canada related to the housing and mortgage sector.

     The Canadian housing economy is safe and stable. At the peak of the US housing boom, approximately 20% to 25% of all US housing sales were for investment purposes. In contrast, CAAMP estimates that only 2% to 3% of Canadian home sales nationally are investment properties. The reason why this is important is that lenders assume borrowers will pay the mortgage on their primary residence ahead of any investment properties.

    The latest CAAMP report also shows that home equity is growing rapidly, and Canadian mortgage holders are repaying their mortgages more quickly than is required. This is great news as, not only are Canadians paying less overall interest throughout their courses as mortgage holders, but they’re also becoming mortgage-free faster as a direct result.

The MLS® HPI benchmark price for all residential properties in Greater Vancouver currently sits at $670,900, up 6% per cent compared to February 2011.

(The benchmark prices  shown here are based on the  average sold listings in all of the Greater Vancouver region.  For more accurate pricing per area, please see chart below.)

The benchmark price for detached properties increased 10.5% from February 2011 and 2012 to$1,042,900.

The benchmark price of an apartment property increased 2.8% from February 2011 and 2012 to $373,300.

The benchmark price of a townhome unit increased 0.7 per cent between February 2011 and 2012 to $472,800.

At 14,055, the total number of residential property listings on MLS(R) increased 17.9 per cent from this time last year.

Did you know that: In 2011, 32,390 homes changed ownership in the Board’s area, generating $1.36 billion in spin-off activity and 9,069 jobs!
