Vancouver Real Estate board overall 

The number of sales improved and prices declined slightly overall on the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. Increased sales volume was in all types of homes, single family, condos and townhouses. There was a minimal decrease of approximately 1.45% in the sale price of single family homes to $1,043,161. The average home including Maple Ridge to West Vancouver is still over $1,000,000!  Townhouses had an average selling price of $539,429 which is an increase of approximately 3.9% over Octobers and Condominiums average price was $416,709 which is  decrease of 5.66% over Octobers.  Buyers had less choice as the over all number of units available dropped by 12 .01% . This is a fairly typical change as Sellers take their houses off the market for the holiday season. The market is showing healthy improvement overall. We are anticipating a fairly busy market early in the new year.

Another year gone by, how time flies! The Olympics have come and gone, the Real Estate market has heated and cooled, the HST story has kept the newscasters busy. It has not been boring! 

We have all been busy throughout the year and have enjoyed helping our clients find homes and get settled. We continue to enjoy good health and good times with families and friends and hope you have been as fortunate. 

Don and Debi spent some time in Disneyland with their family and went to way too many theme parks (lol) but a good time was had by all! They also took a quick week in Hawaii last December to relax and enjoy the tropical weather, palm trees, sun and surf.   

Nicole and her husband are now proud parents of Madison Alexis Hunt who arrived on March 8th, 2010. This will be her first Christmas and they are looking forward to it. Their nephew, Brad Hunt, was named as one of the Hometown Heroes by the MeadowRidge Rotary this year – a proud   moment for the entire family. 

Michelle has had a busy and fulfilling year volunteering as Co-Chair for the District Parents Advisory Council and as being the Awards Director for the Haney Neptunes Swim Club, where her daughter continues to excel.  

The highlight of Lisa’s life this year was moving from their townhome to a lovely rancher in East Maple Ridge.  Her and Doug have completed their renovations and are ready to settle in for their first Christmas in the new home and are excited that Doug’s daughter Mariika will be joining them.   

We are all looking forward to a healthy and prosperous 2011. We would like to thank all of our clients for their business and referrals and we hope you have a safe and happy holiday season and a prosperous 2011.  

If you need more calendars, please give Lisa a call at 604-466-4549 or email her at and we will be happy to drop them by. 


Enjoy the many gifts life affords us all in this beautiful country we call home and take care of each other.

Don, Debi, Michelle, Nicole & Lisa
