Fairview condo market barely slowing down 

Fairview’s condo and townhouse real estate market was still seeing strong sales activity and demand in August. Many parts of Greater Vancouver are seeing a cooling trend with benchmark price declines and a declaration in the condo market.  Despite this Fairview has not seen much of a slow down and remain in a firm Seller’s market.
