rundown on bidding wars

West Vancouver's sky-high priced detached house market is seeing strong competition among homebuyers in certain neighborhoods the first three months of 2015.

21.5% of West Vancouver homes sold received full MLS® list price or more implying multiple offer situations.  

Records from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver show 279 West Vancouver homes sold between January to March this year of which:
  • 8% sold at full MLS® list price and 
  • 13.5% above their MLS® list price.
This slightly elevated demand from home buyers in a particular West Vancouver neighborhood pushed the final sale price $702,000 above the home's MLS® list price. 

"The 1952 built British Properties 2,677 sf one level residence on a 27,577 sf open city view lot across from a local park, hedged by new homes, came onto MLS® February 7th at $4,298,000 with notice of offer(s) presentation scheduled for February 16th and sold for $5,000,000."

Two more British Properties addresses in the first three months of 2015 concluded a final sale with $512,000 and $530,000 over their MLS® list price!
