A History of Vancouver Real Estate Prices

In April 2006 the benchmark price of  a detached home in Greater Vancouver reached $610,382, an increase of 21% over 2005 and an increase of 55.5% since 2004 and an increase of 79.5% since 2001. For Vanouver home buyers this isnt good news but for those who got their foot in the door a few years prior and have built home equity, then trading up is possible. 

Back at the beginning of 2006 one could buy a condo in Burnaby, Coquitlam, Ladner, Maple Ridge, North Vancouver, New West, Pitt Meadows, Port Moody, Richmond, Tsawwassen and East Vancouver for less than $210,000! For the West Side the most affordable condo was $214,900 which required an annual household income of $47,222, based on 5.5% mortgage rate and 10% down.

Real estate buyers could purchase a house back in 2006 for less than $300,000 in Coquitlam, Ladner, Maple Ridge and Port Coquitlam if you had the require annual income of $65,922. If buyers raised the bar to $350,000 they could buy a house in East Vancouver, New West and Pitt Meadows.
