VANCOUVER - Home sales in Vancouver picked up in February compared with both January and the same month a year ago, coming in 2,530, the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver says.
Sales through the board's Multiple Listing Service were up more than 40 per cent from 1,797 a year ago and from 1,760 in January this year.
"Homebuyer demand picked up in February, which is consistent with typical seasonal patterns in our housing market," said Sandra Wyant, president of the Vancouver board.
February sales were in line with the city's 10-year average for the month of 2,547.
