This 1960s Port Coquitlam home with a pool offered for $1.69M amid real estate rebound

Prices for apartment, condos and detached homes are inching up in the Tri-Cities, with Port Coquitlam seeing the biggest gains.
This seven-bedroom, five bathroom home at 3490 Edinburgh St., Port Coquitlam is for sale for $1.699 million.

Port Coquitlam beat out Coquitlam and Port Moody for biggest price gains in housing over the last month.

That statistic from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver's (REBGV) latest report comes as PoCo's market appears to be rebounding.

For example, just 10 days ago, someone listed a large 1960s family home with an in-ground pool on for nearly $1.7 million.

The listing shows a well-kept single-family detached house on a more than 8,000 sq-ft. lot.

Located in the Glenwood neighbourhood, at 3490 Edinburgh St., the home is listed at $1.699 million, about 12 per cent more than the 2022 assessment by the BC Assessment Authority.

According to REBGV, prices rose in May as sales across the Lower Mainland reflected more closely the average spring real estate market.

This is despite a series of interest rate hikes that began last year.

“Back in January, few people would have predicted prices to be up as much as they are — ourselves included,” stated Andrew Lis, REBGV’s director of economics and data analytics said.

“Our forecast projected prices to be up modestly in 2023 by about two per cent at year-end. Instead, Metro Vancouver home prices are already up about six per cent or more across all home types at the midway point of the year.”

Figures for Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam and Port Moody show prices rose last month.

PoCo saw the biggest gains, compared to its sister cities, with prices increasing 2.8 per cent for detached houses, compared to April.

Similarly, prices for townhouses and apartments rose 2.2 per cent — higher than price increases for Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam (see numbers below).
