Low inventory sets stage for a heated spring market TRICIA LESLIE
and social networking sites, there is a lot of knowledge and information that can easily be researched by today’s homebuyers. Still, Metro Vancouver builders are constantly taking the feedback they receive from their homebuyers, and making it reality in today’s new homes. At Morningstar Homes, president Dale Barron notes that one room usually stands out from all the others. “For us this year, it’s all about the kitchen,” he says.
Lack of inventory in the housing market will be the greatest challenge across the country this spring, according to the Re/ Max Market Trends Report 2010. Canadian buyers have been busy, and with a harmonized sales tax on its way in B.C. and Ontario, tighter lending criteria, and interest rates expected to only go higher, homebuyers will likely get busier leading into this summer. The recently released report, which looked at real estate trends in 16 housing “There is markets across Canada, a growing found that unusually strong activity in January sense, on – traditionally one of the both sides quietest months of the year – has led to a sharp of the decline in active listings fence, that in 81 per cent of the the time to markets surveyed. As a result, 87.5 per act is now.” cent of markets posted an increase in sales in January, while average price appreciated in 81 of markets surveyed. “Affordability is the catalyst for the vast majority of purchasers in today’s housing market,” says Re/Max of Western Canada regional executive vice-president Elton Ash. “While home ownership is still within reach in many major centres, levels are slipping. There is a growing sense, on both sides of the fence, that the time to act is now.” Markets experiencing the tightest inventory levels include Toronto (-41 per cent);

Homes: how they’re changing Trends to look for in 2010 and beyond: what locals say TRICIA LESLIE Purchasing a brand-new home is a big step for most people. Whether it’s a large single-family house on a spacious lot or a low-maintenance townhome, condo or rowhome, buyers have plenty of choice in today’s market. Making the actual decision can be tough; much of the time, it comes down to the
homebuyers’ personal taste and why they are looking for a new home. Some may be looking for a larger home to suit the needs of an expanding family, while others may want to downsize from the family home after the kids have moved out. Professional couples may be looking for less home maintenance; a small family may need more room for an aging relative. Local builders are constantly creating new homes based on what homebuyers want. Most will tell you that today’s consumer is much more savvy than 20 years ago – with the advent of the Internet

Kitchener-Waterloo (-33 per cent); Ottawa (-30 per cent); Victoria (-30 per cent); and Greater Vancouver (-27 per cent). The highest year-over-year sales gains were reported in Metro Vancouver (152 per cent); Kelowna (121 per cent); Greater Toronto (87 per cent); and Victoria (69 per cent). Western Canadian cities dominated the the list of centres with the highest increase in price appreciation, the report notes, with Victoria at 25.5 per cent, Kelowna at 22 per cent, Greater Vancouver at 19.5 per cent, while St. John’s posted a 23 per cent increase and Toronto came in at 19 per cent. There have never been so many motivating factors in play at once,” says Re/Max Ontario-Atlantic Canada executive vice-president Michael Polzler. “We’re in for a heated spring market that will, in all probability, spill over into the “It’s summer months been an as the window of 180-degree opportunity draws turnaround to a close. “The supply from this of homes listed time last for sale has been drastically reduced, year.

Competing bids are a factor in the marketplace once again, with well-priced listings – especially at the entry level price point – experiencing multiple offers. Properties priced at at fair-market value will likely sell quickly for top dollar, and the overall pressure on sales and price likely won’t subside unless more inventory is released, the report says. “The level of frustration is growing as pent-up demand builds,” Polzler says. “For every successful offer, there are those who will walk away emptyhanded. They’re thrust back into the buyer pool and the process starts all over again. Some buyers are upping the ante, while other are considering alternate housing options.” Buyers will likely adjust to the new mortgage rules, but this may mean they’ll have to go smaller or further in their pursuits. “It’s been a 180-degree turnaround from this time last year, “ Ash says. “It’s clear that real estate from coast to coast has roared back to life and markets are once again firing on all cylinders.”
“People are more
sophisticated” Off the front: “We
see Abbotsford as the next ‘it’ place.” – Dale Barron, president,
Morningstar Homes CONTINUED FROM P.1
People are starting to embrace the notion that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and while it is a notion that is not new, Barron says kitchens in new homes are finally starting to reflect that train of thought. “The size and the function are what is changing,” he says. “Now, we’re finding our most popular rooms in showhomes is the kitchen – the kitchens that afford the most opportunity to mingle, eat, chat or recreate in the same space.” Some kitchen islands can now seat up to eight people, he notes. Barron has also noticed a shift in one of the mainstays of real estate: location, location, location. With home prices on the rise, it’s harder for many buyers to buy a home in Vancouver or within its outskirts, he says. “We’re now finding that more people are moving to places like Langley, Abbotsford, Mission and Chilliwack. People are definitely moving to the valley ... probably 50 per cent of my employees live in the valley,” Barron says. Morningstar is currently building homes in a new development in the Bradner area of Abbotsford, entitled Pepin Brook. Surrounded by vineyards in a pastoral setting, the spacious, single-family homes of 2,250 square feet are on 6,000-sq.-ft. lots, and feature green construction practices. Prices start at under $500,000. “That home in Coquitlam would be over $1 million,” Barron says. “We see Abbotsford as the next ‘it’ place.” Mosaic Homes’ Andrea Camp notes that sustainable building, in general, is more and more prominent. From the types of windows, fireplaces and appliances installed in new

homes to the toilets and lighting, green building is flourishing, she says. Camp says that, in general, homes are better built than they were 20 or 30 years ago. “We’re trending toward better-designed homes,” she says, and adds that buyers know what they want in today’s market – much more so than in the past. “People are more sophisticated.” At ParkLane Homes, senior designer Grant Miller has noticed that great room designs are increasingly popular in new homes, because they are a better use of space. “There has been a large movement toward recognizing how and why people use space ... open-space planning makes a space feel bigger,” Miller says. “There is less emphasis nowadays on ritualized, formal events. Thus, the space that used to serve those events, such as the formal dining room, is being rendered obsolete. People want space where they will use it.” Miller notes that a very noticeable trend is a
greater appreciation of outdoor space. “Homes are being designed to provide a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living space,” he says, and adds that French doors from the kitchen to the patio are a great example. A love of natural light, akin to the appreciation of outdoor space, has also led to such features as floor-to-ceiling windows and great rooms designed to be open from above, giving a loft-like feel to the upper level, he says. And having areas in a home that can be used for more than one purpose is increasingly popular, Miller adds, noting that many new homes have “flex” space. “Now, people are looking for homes that allow for flexible use and provide more livable space.” Whether looking for a large or small home, today’s buyer has several, well-built options to choose from; homes that are greener than ever before and offer choices for every lifestyle.

A home for every lifestyle at Time
Townhomes set in a quiet Langley community A lone teen makes his way down the street, past the park, his backpack slung over a shoulder. Towering evergreens are thick throughout the well-established neighbourhood, lining the quiet streets where one dogwalker takes advantage of a break between showers. In the midst of this peaceful Walnut Grove community, ParkLane Homes is building a select collection of 106 brandnew, three-bedroom townhomes that have already enticed several people to purchase a new domicile. Entitled Time at Walnut Grove, the homes allow residents to make the most of their indoor and outdoor spaces, with spacious patios, generous living areas, and room to store all the tools, toys, games and sports gear. Parks and green spaces abound in the surrounding community, offering links to the hundreds of kilometres of nature trails available to locals. In fact, Parklane built a trail at Time’s back park that connects to the area’s extensive network. “Our modern, open-plan living areas are designed to maximize the amount of space in a home that a family will actually use on a daily basis,” says sales manager Jenny Wun. With more than 10 different floorplans, homebuyers have a wide variety of choice, she notes. “Our buyers have responded very positively to our range of home sizes and pricing – it fits both their budget and their lifestyle,” Wun says. Time represents a total package, she continues, with a great community to live in, townhomes that fit every lifestyle, and a

Look sharp. Live smart.
Home sweet home Discover all that Richmond has to offer in a Polygon Cambridge Park home During the day, you might enjoy exploring the historic fishing village of Steveston, or perhaps, hike some of the 75 kilometres of trails along Richmond’s extensive dike system. By night, you may choose to go glam and dine out at a posh restaurant before experiencing the myriad nightlife options available to you. When you live at Cambridge Park, these are just a handful of examples of how you may spend your time. Polygon Homes’ latest community, Cambridge Park, is located in Richmond’s Alexandra Gate neighbourhood, and offers a prime location for any homeowner. Home to Vancouver International Airport, the bustling island city is just 20 minutes away from downtown Vancouver, and the Aberdeen SkyTrain station (on the Canada Line) is only a 10-minute walk from Cambridge Park. The contemporary apartment residences offer the convenience of a location that offers an international selection of shopping, dining, amenities and services; families appreciate the range of top-quality educational institutes, from elementary to post-secondary. New parks, shopping and greenways are planned for the entire Alexandra Gardens community as well – something for residents to look forward to. And it seems buyers are interested in these new one- and two-bedroom homes – on opening weekend alone, 65 out of 120 homes were sold, and homebuyers camped out overnight to be among the first to choose a Cambridge Park home. “Now, we’re almost 65 per cent sold,” says Cambridge Park sales manager May Kam. “(Homebuyers) are pretty excited ... we have a great selection of floorplans and very affordable pricing.” Cambridge Park is part of a masterplanned community that Polygon hopes to build in the Alexandra Gardens neighbourhood, Kam says, so it’s easy for buyers to get a new home in a new community, and still have excellent resale value for at least the next five years. Although the homes won’t be finished until February or March 2011, they will be move-in ready when construction is complete, says Kam. “Presale is back because the market is good,” she notes. “All they have to do is just move in. There’s no stress.” Designed by award-winning architect Robert Ciccozzi, the brick buildings of Cambridge Park feature Internationalstyle architecture in a clean façade, with flat, overhanging rooflines. Inside, become a foodie in your gourmet kitchen, which features oversized granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Imported porcelain tile flooring comes in the entry, kitchen, nook and bathrooms, while luxury ensuites pamper with soaker tubs and more granite counters. Private, residents-only amenities include a fitness studio, a social lounge, a guest suite for visitors and a live-in resident manager to take care of all the details. Two-bedroom homes start from $329,900. Visit www.polyhomes.com for more information.

GVHBA hosts 16th annual seminar for first-time homebuyers With so many diverse factors to take into consideration when buying a new home, it is no surprise that first-time home buyers need a little help de-mystifying the process. What location is preferable? What type of home is best matched to current needs and financial resources? What are the mortgage options? Will interest rates rise by summer? How about legal considerations and closing costs? How will the federal government’s new mortgage qualifying rules and upcoming harmonized sales tax affect buyers? What is involved with buying a pre-sale condo? What are the benefits of builder licensing and mandatory home warranties? These and other key questions will be answered by a panel of housing experts at the 16th annual seminar for first-time homebuyers, presented by the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association on March 23 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel (15269 104 Ave., Surrey).
