I have listed a new property at # 205 4783 DAWSON ST in Burnaby.
This is a great two bedroom unit at "COLLAGE" by Polygon. Very central location to Brentwood town centre and Skytrain for easy access downtown. There is a large west facing patio over looking the courtyard greenspace, certainly one of thebest locations in the building. The suite is bright and very well laid out with a practical and spacious floor plan. The kitchen has a gas stove cooktop, lots of counter space tiled backsplash a large double sink and a breakfast bar. The complex has a clubhouse with an amenity room and there is still the balance of the home warranty. This is a great place to start in the Brentwood area. YOU'LL LOVE IT!

VANCOUVER, B.C. – June 2, 2009 – A continued increase in buyer activity over the last four months has resulted in increased home sales and lessened the downward pressure on housing prices in Greater Vancouver.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that the number of residential property sales in Greater Vancouver totalled 3,524 in May 2009, an increase of 17.4 per cent from the 3,002 sales recorded in May 2008, and an increase of 18.9 per cent compared to last month.

Since the beginning of the year, the MLSLink® Housing Price Index (HPI) benchmark price for all residential properties in Greater Vancouver has increased 4.5 per cent to $506,201 from $484,211. However, home prices compared to May 2008 levels are down 10.9 per cent.

“The increased level of buyer activity over the last few months has had a stabilizing effect on home prices across our region,” Scott Russell, REBGV president said. “MLS® data continues to show a trend toward a balanced market in the region.”

New listings for detached, attached and apartment properties declined in Greater Vancouver, down 36 per cent to 4,733 in May 2009 compared to May 2008, when 7,390 new units were listed. At 13,641, the total number of property listings on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) declined 4.7 per cent compared to last month and 16 per cent compared to May 2008.
