Dexter Report - Oct 15th 2020 - Greater Vancouver Home Sales and Listings Market Report

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.
