On a real estate topic, this week’s Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver’s news release stated “We saw steady increases in home seller and buyer activity in April, which is typically the case in the spring months,” Ray Harris, REBGV president said. “People often look to buy or sell their home this time of year as the school year draws to a close and the summer holiday season is still a few months away,” Harris said. “Home prices in the region continue to show steady, yet modest, increases when compared to last year,” Harris said. The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is currently $619,000. This represents a 3.6 per cent increase compared to April 2013.
