We are contemplating selling or waiting for Vancouver’s market to recover. How is Vancouver in relation to past markets or other jurisdictions that were in a downturn?

Vancouver has experienced major downturns in 1974, 1978, 1981 – 1984 (16% interest rates), 1989, 1993 (13.5% mortgage), 1998, 2008. It recovered from all of them. Other markets? Toronto had a 16% sales increase, Montreal ditto (prices up 7% and volume 15%). Ottawa seems to be even reversing Canada’s declining home price trend by “experiencing its biggest boom in almost a decade,” according to The Globe and Mail increasing price by 8% in March.
