The sales and listings numbers are attached as of October 15, 2020. The real estate market continues to move along with October keeping pace with where September was at mid-month, albeit with a slight drop in the number of new listings coming on. Sales in the last half of September did gain momentum, will that be the case for October? In Greater Vancouver, there have been 1,741 sales as of October 15th while there were 1,755 sales last month as of September 15th. While we’ll likely see over 3,000s sale at month end for Greater Vancouver as was the case in September, the year-over-year increase won’t be as dramatic given October 2019 had the highest monthly sales for 2019 at 2,892. But that doesn’t take away from the fact this real estate market continues to move – no pun in intended.
 
Typically, October would have more sales than September – but of course in the year of COVID, there is no usual. We may not quite see the same level of sales to finish the month but buyers are still engaging and with the number of new listings less so far in October than we saw in September, competition continues to be strong – especially for detached homes. There have been 3,060 new listings in Greater Vancouver so far this month, which is less than the 3,385 new listings at mid-month in September. Total active listings are down slightly to 13,670 from the 13,790 at the end of September. We do have a provincial election on October 24th which may distract a few buyers and sellers over the next week but so far that really hasn’t been an issue. Housing policies haven’t been a significant part of the platforms in the election, status quo seems to be where we are headed. Supply is going to be an issue in the coming years as a result. There was a slight lag in sales leading up to Thanksgiving but activity picked up again after that.
 
While it was a September to remember, the real estate market could still be Mr. October after we finish the month.

The resale housing market is helping to lead us out of the Great Suppression – now who would have thought that would be the case when we dived into the dark days back in March. Certainly not CMHC - the Canadian Mortgage Housing Corporation after they tried to convince everyone there would be a decline in activity and prices. And I’m sure our provincial government is glad CMHC was wrong as they take in the benefits of the property transfer tax revenue these sales generated – not to mention the ancillary economic benefits that come from the sale of homes. This was a month for the record books – highest sales for the month of September on record. And yes, there were almost a record number of new listings that came on the market, but given the lack of properties that have been available, this was and is still needed to contain run away price growth.
 
There were 3,741 properties sold of all types in Greater Vancouver in September this year compared with 3,122 sold last month, 2,363 sales in September last year and 1,634 sold in September 2018. It was the highest amount of sales for the month of September on record in Greater Vancouver second to 3,632 in 2009. It is safe to say we are well beyond COVID-19 pent up demand; this is a housing market that is carrying itself and there are many factors to consider in looking at what the future holds for it.
 
Total sales in September were 55 per cent above the ten-year average for the month, compared to 21 per cent above the ten-year average in August. Looking at the different types of properties, detached home sales were up 77 per cent year over year (55 per cent in August), townhouses up 72 per cent year over year (51 per cent in August), apartments up 36 per cent year over year (19 per cent in August). Detached homes made up 36 per cent of all sales, while townhomes made up 20 per cent and apartments 44 per cent – consistent with August. Total active listings for apartments are up 20 per cent year over year, and active listings for townhouse and detached homes are down 9 per cent and 21 per cent respectively year over year.
 

There continues to be discussion about the apartment market in downtown Vancouver and the increase in active listings. While there has been an increase in the number of apartments for sale, we are coming off extreme lows in 2017 which lead to price increases during that time. There is still less than half the number of active listings than there were in 2010 through 2012. Working at home and the desire for space has led to some owners wanting to make a move outside the downtown core, but the number of transactions have increased since the spring. Buyers are still active and taking advantage of an increase in choice. Market cycles do happen, and a shift to detached homes is one of them, especially in light of price declines in recent years in the detached market.

 
2020 Average Daily Sales and Listings in Greater Vancouver by Week:
 
First two weeks of March – 253 new listings, 138 sales
Last two weeks of March – 167 New Listings, 98 Sales
April – 120 new listings, 56 sales
May – 189 new listings, 75 sales
June – 274 new listings, 115 sales
July – 274 new listings, 147 sales
August 4 to 7 – 337 new listings, 151 sales
August 10 to 14 – 282 new listings, 140 sales
August 17 to 21 – 298 new listings, 171 sales
August 24 to 28 – 279 new listings, 164 sales
August 31 to September 4 – 275 new listings, 162 sales
September 8 to 11 – 379 new listings, 171 sales
September 14 to 18 – 315 new listings, 184 sales
September 21 to 25 – 295 new listings, 180 sales
 
There was an increase in the number of new listings in September, which was 25 per cent higher than the ten-year average for this month. As a result, at the end of September there were 13,790 properties for sale, compared to 13,511 at the end of August but still less than the 14,242 available at the end of September 2019 – a 3 per cent reduction in the number of homes available year-over-year. The rate of increase in active listings slowed in September and will likely continue to do so moving through the fall. 
 
While we look to the reminder of 2020 and a fall full of anxiety on where COVID-19 will take us, there is still a lot to be positive about. Yes, government debt has grown as stimulus and support is being injected into our economy but that’s what governments are supposed to do in natural disasters. When the lockdown started, savings rates were at all-time highs as the ability to spend money was for the most part locked down. But even today after economies opened up, savings rates are higher. And with more savings and all-time low interest rates, people are looking to real estate as a vehicle to put their money into. Not as an investment vehicle but they are buying into the market or upgrading their living situation. And with interest rates likely to be low for the foreseeable future, this equation of savings and low mortgage rates are likely to continue driving the real estate market. But this isn’t just a Metro Vancouver phenomenon – U.K. mortgage approvals are at a thirteen-year high. Many other countries are experiencing the same surge in real estate activity that we are seeing. So perhaps this is not just a temporary normal, or COVID pent up demand, but a new normal. With the economic uncertainty we are experiencing, people are not buying speculatively, they are making moves with an abundance of caution and looking long-term, looking at space and shifting their needs. And these moves in Metro Vancouver are local. But globally, as we saw in 2015 and 2016, there is a shift of putting savings and wealth into real estate. And going forward, a home will be even more important. More so than it ever was before.
 

“We’ve seen robust home sale and listing activity across Metro Vancouver throughout the summer months,” Colette Gerber, REBGV Chair said, “This increased activity can be attributed, in part, to lower interest rates and changing housing needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pace of new MLS® listings entering the market is increasing, the heightened demand from home buyers is keeping overall supply levels down. This is creating upward pressure on home prices, which have been edging up since the spring.”

 
East of Vancouver, the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 2,231 sales of all property types on its Multiple Listing Service® in September, an increase of 9.4 per cent compared to sales in August and a 66.1 per cent increase compared to September last year. This was the highest sales for the month of September in the Fraser Valley Board. There were 3,515 new listings in September, a 6.2 per cent decrease compared to August and a 26.9 per cent increase compared to September of last year. September finished with 7,377 active listings, a decrease of 0.4 per cent compared to August’s inventory and a decrease of 7.2 per cent year-over-year. “Our homes have never been more important. Across the Fraser Valley, we’re seeing a trend towards buyers looking for more space and livability in both single-family homes and townhomes,” Chris Shields, President of the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board said. “For many existing home-owners and first-time buyers, their buying power is great than it’s been in a long time. Interest rates are very low, people have saved money over the last few months, and they’re choosing to invest it in their most important assess. Sellers are also recognizing that with lower than normal inventory, this is a smart time to list.”
