Why Vancouver House Prices Have Been Unusually Volatile -- And What's Next

The fact that the Home Price Index has obscured the extreme and unusual volatility in average detached home prices may itself be a problem. Few home buyers or sellers are likely aware that it is even occurring. It certainly hasn't been widely reported. Since early 2011, average house prices have changed direction by a factor of 10 per cent or more five times. Such volatility had never happened before, and the swings are getting wilder.
