Home prices in Vancouver continue their ascent a year after the BC government imposed a foreign-homebuyer tax on the metro area a year ago, and it has a lot to do with an insufficient supply of housing, TD Bank observes.
“We don’t anticipate a significant drop in home prices in any way. Interest rates are going up but they’re going up very gradually, and really what matters is the supply-demand balance of home price,” Diana Petramala, TD Bank economist, tells BuzzBuzzNews.

"We had previously tried to sell our house a few times, but with no success. We went though a couple of agents trying to do so. Then a friend introduced us to Carmen. Right from the start we realized we made a right decision. She was very articulate, patient and professional. We love the creative marketing that she created for our home, which included a cinematic film, gorgeous daytime/twilight photos. Best marketing in town!! During the offers and counter offers, Carmen turned out to be not only our agent, but also a very good negotiator, by getting us over our asking price. We are extremely happy and highly recommend Carmen Leal to anyone.
