Purchasing Then vs. Now

General Angela Calla 7 Mar

Within the last year, BC’s housing market has undergone numerous changes and adjustments. The image above compares some key figures from a year ago to now. This can be crucial for one looking to buy their first home and what they can expect regarding rates, payments, and what direction the trend in the market is heading towards.

We’ve broken down the difference in these figures below:

  • Median Purchase Price: Decrease of $396,500
  • Down Payment: Decrease of $79,300
  • Property Transfer Tax: Decrease of $7930
  • 5-Year Fixed Rate: Increase of 2%
  • Mortgage Payment: Decrease of $251.96
  • Balance at the end of the 5-Year Term: Decrease of $254,248.64

What this indicates is that while rates have increased since last year, you are ultimately paying less overall for a home and paying it off faster.
