Hello and welcome to our April 2013 newsletter at Pinnacle Group Marketing. As always, we want to start off by thanking you for taking the time to read this update and hope that it proves to be informative for you.
Although April 2013 home sales volumes across the Lower Mainland real estate market rose over March figures, they softened compared to the same month last year. Demand for properties continued to result in sales of homes that met buyer requirements which in many cases had more to do with the properties location or other attributes vs pricing. Finding the “right buyer” for a property has become more important than ever. At PGM, our marketing efforts are geared to creating unique online exposure for a property, giving potential buyers the best opportunity to discover and consider it in their real estate search for a new home.
PGM is proud to announce that our listing at 950 Bend Court in Coquitlam has been SOLD! This impressive 7,714 sq. ft. gated estate offered at $1,868,900 was sold at over 96% of the listing price in just over 4 weeks. We are very happy to have achieved the goals of both the seller and buyer in this multiple unit transaction.
This is the one you have been waiting for in Westwood Plateau! From the moment you step into this stunning 6-bedroom home you will be amazed with the modern renovations from top to bottom.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver released their April 2013 residential home sales statistics on May 2, 2013.
The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential property sales in Greater Vancouver reached 2,627 on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in April 2013. This represents a +11.9% increase compared to the 2,347 sales recorded in March 2013 but slightly down from the 2,799 sales last year in April 2012.
“While the number of home sales remains below average, properties that are priced right are selling and we’re seeing greater balance between buyer demand and the number of homes listed for sale. This is having a steadying influence on home prices in the region,” says Sandra Wyant, REBGV president.
