HOW WAS THE MARKET IN DECEMBER '13
4 lofts traded hands in December while 6 lofts remained on the market through the end of the year. The lofts that sold spent, on average, 90 days on the market. 2 of those lofts were in the new development INGastown so it's typical to see some pre-sale properties stay on the market longer than the resale properties. There was a loft at the Greenshields Building that took quite awhile to sell and one at Koret Lofts that sold in just over 1 month. Koret had a lot of action this year. I personally sold 3 lofts in the building. I think that building is getting better and better.
2013 was a pretty good year in Gastown and in the Real Estate Market in general. Looking at Gastown specifically the total number of sales went up 12.5% when compared to 2012. The average days on the market went up but we don't need to sweat that because as mentioned above Gastown saw a couple of new developments who's properties landed on the mls so that can skew the numbers a touch. Lastly, the average sale price also went up by 6.8%.
2012 was nothing to brag about. When looking at what happened in 2013 I see an even better 2014!
