The Metro Vancouver real estate market has shown remarkable strength in May, with significant year-over-year increases in sale prices for attached homes;
West Vancouver experienced a notable surge, with prices rising by 24%, while Delta witnessed an astonishing 36% increase despite a rise in interest rates of 4.5% over the past 13 months. 

The latest data reveals positive trends in the real estate market, specifically in New Westminster and South Surrey. Year over year, sale prices for detached homes have increased by 12% in New Westminster and 9% in South Surrey. 

In contrast, areas such as Pitt Meadows have seen a decline in sale prices compared to May of the previous year. This variation emphasizes the localized nature of the real estate market, where different factors can influence prices in specific regions.

These substantial growth rates are particularly surprising considering the rise in interest rates by 4.5% over a period of 13 months. 

A significant contributing factor to the rising sale prices in various areas, such as New Westminster and South Surrey, is the imbalance between housing supply and demand. The demand for housing has outpaced the rate at which new properties are being built or made available on the market.

The current market conditions present opportunities for buyers and sellers alike, and by seizing those opportunities, you can position yourself for success in today's housing market.
