The chart shows the bulls in charge prior to the 2007-2008 plunge that took the average Vancouver SFD price down $122,900, or 15.9% in 8 months (24% per year drop). The crash derailed the exponential doubling trend but after reignition prices doubled again in June of 2016 at $1,542,642 + $18,858. The next double was scheduled for around December 2021, but it is now unlikely that buyers are as fearful of missing out as they were in 1H 2016.
In February 2017, Vancouver detached house prices added very little drama to the slump from the July peak under the heavy weight of sentiment change and sales that are 53% below their March 2016 peak. The manic detached buying spree moved prices up 21.5% per year since the JAN 2013 low. Prices now are deflating at 11.4% since the peak in July 2016.
