The Chinese Speculators are selling - causing a $150,000 price drop in 4 weeks!

April 26  2011 w8c

The Richmond single family detached residential market has just experienced some serious market manipulation with short term speculation. Back In January and February we saw many homes purchased with longer completion dates and assignment rights. There has been a large contingent of speculators that purchased about 50 standard homes on normal sized lots and they are now offering many of these assignment sales contracts back up for resale at $100,000's more. The days of multiple offers and selling at the average of $49,000 over list with only 10 days on the market are gone. The current discount is now $28,000 below list and the average price based on sp/sqft is now down $110,000-$160,000 from the March 29 2011 peak.  With fast increasing inventories MTI and poor sell through rate STR (absorption) this confined market in Richmond West of #3 road will now experience continued pressure on selling prices.

We are expecting a good sales volume in the next 8 weeks from mainland China and this extra inventory could be absorbed quicker than the current local demand indicates.

Listen to the local experts  "Austin Kay and Anita Chan" as they explain these changes on our next interview on "The Chinese Buying Activities" as to how these price changes affect your home values and how you can plan ahead and make informed decisions.
