Greater Vancouver Sales and Listings Report as of August 18, 2019

ales and listings stats are attached as of August 18, 2019. At mid-month in August home sales are performing marginally better than August of last year at mid-month, although last August was the first of nine straight months with home sales in Greater Vancouver below 2,000 units, this August should see the fourth straight month above 2,000 homes sold. While sales are on the increase, new listings are going in the opposite direction. With less homes coming to the market this is creating more competition amongst buyers and resulting in a fewer number of active listings. And with global changes, potential for lower interest rates and continued population growth, the supply issues will once again become the unrecognized factor in Metro Vancouver’s real estate market. Along with the stats is David’s analysis of sales by price point for Westside detached and attached.
