Unless you’ve been asleep for the past couple of seasons, I’m sure you’ve noticed the real estate boom happening on the North Shore right now. It seems that pretty much any street your drive up or down on has a for sale sign in the ground and there’s a good chance that if there’s not a sold sticker on it yet, it’s soon to have one. There’s some real demand out there right now and at least in the foreseeable it sure doesn’t seem to be slowing down any. It’s so beautiful here, should we be surprised that everyone else seems to be catching on to all the beauty this area has to offer? North Vancouver Real Estate and specifically North Vancouver Homes just continue to be one of the most sought after places to reside in all of Vancouver. It truly appeals to the masses as an outdoor enthusiast paradise with your proximity to endless parks, hiking trails, biking trails, Capilano Suspension Bridge, minutes from the local ski hills, while also being such a community and family oriented place with a host of excellent schools to choose from. North Vancouver Homes are doing a great job in checking off the criteria list for many families looking for that perfect combination of schools, community, picturesque scenery and great neighbourhoods. With the latest monthly totals from the Real Estate Board Of Greater Vancouver for Detached North Vancouver houses for February and March, the trend looks as strong as ever. February showed an inventory of 248 detached homes in North Van listed for sale, with a 49% sales ratio. March showed 262 North Vancouver homes listed for sale, with 189 sales(72.14%). I’ve called North Vancouver home for over 35+ years and the real estate market and the desire to live here does not surprise me. Couples see it as an ideal place to raise a family, surrounded by outdoor activities, walking distance to amenities, and just steps from a handful of schools to choose from. You’re far enough away from the congestion of downtown, but only 20-25 minutes from being in the heart of it when needed. The listing and sales stats for North Vancouver houses in April will be released in roughly 1 week and I suspect the trend has not altered very much.
