Sales and Listings Report for Greater Vancouver as of July 21 2019

Sales and listings stats are attached as of July 21, 2019. I remember a comment from this very analyst that writes these updates that sales were showing signs of increasing and total active listings were struggling to stay above 15,000 homes. Sales for July are so far tracking at about 15 per cent above the levels of last July at this time, with new listings down 9 per cent and active listings falling. We are likely to see sales in Greater Vancouver finish July at 2,500 homes sold which would be 19 per cent above the number of sales in June. Vancouver’s West Side is showing some of the better numbers for far, with detached home sales at the same level as June already. Active listings are down to 15,385 after peaking at 15,770 at the end of June. The federal government reduced the stress test rate to 5.19 per cent, down from 5.34 per cent. While not a significant amount, a sign that rates for borrowing are dropping and could spark further interest from buyers. Fixed rates are down approximately 0.7 per cent since going up – begging the question as to why the government only dropped the stress test rate by 0.15 per cent!
