1.大家好，我是陆健，Jonathan Lu, 加拿大温哥华地区前1%顶级房产经纪，今天和大家分享一下大温最新公布的2020年2月份 房屋销售数据。 2.销售总量 大温哥华地区2月份的购房者需求稳定，而房源供应减少。 大温哥华房地产局（REBGV）报告称，2020年2月大温住宅房屋销售总量总计2,150套，比2019年2月1,484套增长44.9％，比2020年1月出售的1,571套增长36.9％ 上个月的销售量比2月份的10年平均销售量低15.6％。 大温房产局主席称“二月份购房需求再次出现同比强劲增长，而待售房屋的总库存却难以跟上步伐。这在公寓市场上最为明显。” 3.基准价 目前，大温哥华地区所有住宅物业的MLS®房屋价格指数综合基准价格为1,020,600加元。这比2019年2月增加0.3%，比过去六个月增加2.7％。 4.挂牌量 2020年2月在MLS上新挂牌独立屋,联排屋和公寓为4,002套。与去年同期3,892套相比上升了2.8％。与2020年1月3,872套房屋相比增加了3.4％。 目前在大温哥华的MLS®系统上挂牌出售的房屋总数为9,195套，与2019年2月（11,590套）相比下降20.7％，与2020年1月（8,617套）相比增长6.7％， “我们的房地产经纪人报告说，在某些市场上，Open house的客流量增加，并且出现了多人报价。如果您正在考虑出售这些市场的房屋，现在正是买方需求增加，其他卖方的竞争减少以及价格上涨的好时机。”大温房产局主席Ashley Smith 5.挂售比 对于所有类型的房地产，2020年2月的挂售比为23.4％。按物业类型，独立屋的比例为17.3％，联排屋的比例为26.9％，公寓的比例为28.4％。通常来说，当挂售比持续下降至12％以下时，就会出现房价下跌的压力，而在几个月内挂售比超过20％时，房价往往会受到上涨的压力。 6.个人见解 正如我在一月份预测的，2月份的大温哥华楼市已经全面由本地刚需换房拉动，销售比2019年同期活跃。最重要的原因之一是本地家庭对于一月份收到的最新政府估价的影响已经消化。 大家对中低端的公寓，联排及别墅市场已经整体止跌回涨达成共识，持币等待两年的本地买家已经开始大量买入。这也造成最近一次次的买家多方竞价最终卖价高于政府估价情况的出现。 而高端楼市则取决于买卖双方的心态。市场上现在不缺买家和资金，如果卖家愿意按现在市场价卖，有买家愿意接手。反之，今年要等高端楼市复苏反弹, 几乎不再可能。第二个因素是市场供应量，2月份市场上并没有大量新挂牌房源，造成买家只能在有限的房源内挑选能买到的性价比好的房源，这也解释了市场上看房的买家明显增加，而所谓性价比好的房源最终也都卖了出去。 3月份将进入本地择校换房的高峰季节，而影响3月份楼市销售的最重要因素在于新挂牌的供应量以及新冠肺炎对本地经济和心理的影响程度。短期来讲下面几个是对楼市的利好因素： 第一，前2个月卖出房屋的卖家将开始买入想要置换的物业，第二，被私校及大学录取的家庭开始进入看房和换房模式，最后央行降息和压力测试的调整将会进一步促进本地刚需楼市的买卖。3月3日和4日美国和加拿大央行都分别下调基准利率50个点，这也是加拿大央行自2015年来的首次降息，房屋买卖借贷成本将继续降低。我们预计3月份楼市销量会继续走高，不同的地段和房屋产品，他们的价格表现将会完全不同。 那未来1-2年的大温楼市走势将会如何呢？从政府政策层面来讲，省政府在2月份如期公布了2020年度新的预算案。BC省的经济在2019年表现良好，失业率属于加拿大全国最低，经济增长也是全国最高。省政府财政年度有超过2亿元的盈余，而且预计在2020年度盈余还会增加。按现在的势头，这一届省政府将会继续执政到2021年的秋季选举。政府对本地楼市的政策将会继续对外国人买房征税及对投机税的执行不会放松，而三级政府也会对出租及可负担的公寓开发持鼓励和支持态度。未来个人楼市的投资将会更多元化，从过去几年一味的民用独立屋的投资转变成小公寓出租及工业和商业房产的投资。高端的公寓及别墅会在这两年一直处于本地自住换房的小量需求推动。开发商的投资主要会集中在刚性出租公寓建设及政府政策导向的商业，工业及写字楼开发。 讲了这么多，您所在区域的房产是处于什么样的竞争情况呢？您现在是否应该挂牌赶快出手做置换或买入自住及投资房呢？楼市复杂多变，那怎么样才能做到洞悉大温哥华楼市变化，在您需要房产买卖时做到胸有成竹呢？ 想解答上述疑问您可以扫我们的二维码免费收到每月您所在区域的楼市分析报告。也可以直接联系我们Jonathan Lu, 陆健 电话604-868-9920， 电邮[email protected] 来面对面为您免费做房产买卖一揽子解决方案的专业咨询和评估。请记得扫描我们微信公众号二维码继续关注大温哥华地区房市动态，最后祝大家2020年3月愉快。

The first time in Canada to buy a house, because at that time living abbotsford, daughter-in-law at work, every day traffic is very inconvenient to end as soon as possible to run around, so buy a house is also very busy time After a friend introduced Jonathan, successfully won the present house, very satisfied. Because we are more catching, so most of the showings time after get off work and the weekend, the new home came out after the arrangement is also very efficient time close, once to see a few, pick the right house to quickly offer. Because the property market hot, grab several times without a deal, Jonathan or has been with us to continue to showings, to a reasonable proposal. Finally finally bought the house now. From the beginning of the election room, the purchase to the entire moving details, as well as the back of the service after the move, their team is doing very carefully. Help us to arrange moving company, as well as some of the facilities after the move recommended. In short, the choice of Jonathan team service is absolutely wrong, buy a house please find Jonathan, above.
Jonathan Lu team reached out to me offering their services in realty when I mentioned an interest in buying a home in the lower mainland. Despite a limited budget and ambitious deadline, Jonathan Lu team undertook the challenge with both enthusiasm and a high level of professionalism. As I was a first time home buyer, Jonathan Lu team took the time to answer all my questions thoroughly, and worked around my busy schedule to ensure the process went as easily and smoothly as possible. They worked with me to find the right home that met my needs while remaining honest, transparent, and trustworthy throughout. I thank Jonathan Lu team for their hard work and am very happy with my new home!
Jonathan gave us a lot of advices when we confused about what to do in the buying process. His team offered very professional services and communication. Especially, we are very satisfied with their patience. Reliable, thoughtful arrangements can as the key words of Jonathan team. Thank you Jonathan and your team helped us to find our desired place.
Very satisfied, Jonathan Lu team has professional knowledge of real estate, selling our property very fast!
The listing is rapid, the market price is accurate, and our home was sold with a good price at a rocket-like speed when the housing market was on a downhill. Jonathan Lu team has provided us professional knowledge and a warm service attitude during the selling process. Jonathan can be truly considered as the Greater Vancouver TOP 1% real estate agent expert. I will strongly recommend you to my friends.
Jonathan helped us sold the condo as the best price in only a few days even in this bad market. He has professional knowledge about the real estate field and fantastic customer service! Answer my question on time, communicate with the most updated information, analyze the competitors. I will highly recommend him to my friends!! The Top 1% realtor!
Jonathan helps me to purchase my first home in Vancouver. I have problems with my mortgage, he referral ALL different banks’ mortgage specialists and other mortgage brokerages to me. After I get my mortgage pre-approve, he analysis the real estate market and tell me what kinds of options I have within my budget. He helps me with searching and viewing properties, always communicate with me to update the newest market information. Finally, I have the one in my mind, and there is another one which is located at the same community just across mine, the same direction, same layout, similar condition, same size… Then he makes an AWESOME NEGOTIATION STRATEGY. As a result, I purchased mine as almost $50k LOWER than the other one. Less than 80% of the Property Assessment Price. The sold date is just ONE DAY different… His customer service after sell also help me to save a lot time! Amazing knowledgeable realtor! I will definitely recommend you to choose him to save money!! Call him!
We’re very glad and satisfied with Jonathan’s outstanding service. Actually we had another agent before him to sell our apartment. However, the pervious agent didn’t do his job at all even though he and his team knew we had time limitation. We fired him after 2 months since he missed best time period to sell and poor service we had. After seeing 3 different agents, we decided to work with Jonathan Lu without any referral because his professional advices and pervious business record let us believe he could sell our apartment ASAP. I told him I didn’t receive any good not even standard service from my first agent such as no pro-active communication, no follow-up, awful pictures of my home that listed on the website, just his assistant for every time showing and open house, just met the agent twice during our collaboration which signed the contact and returned the keys at the end.
Hiring Jonathan is our best and wise choice. He sold our home after 1st open house and higher price on late October which was not regular hot selling time. He did lots of work before the Open House so that we even had couple showing before first time open house. He sent very good photographer for shooting pictures, posted articles on different social media to promote our home, commutated and followed-up any updates with me, always replied efficient about my concerns or questions. Therefore, we got 3 offers on 1st Open House night. Jonathan came to our home that night and explained the difference among them, and helped us to make best decision. That’s sold our apartment higher price than what we listed in 7 days. That’s what we were looking for it!
We truly recommend Jonathan Lu not only his professional knowledge of real estate market but also his detail-oriented excellent service!
Have known Jonathan for over 5 years. He’s been helping my family buying and selling properties. Under current down market, him and his team sold my property just over one month.
