Dear Stuart,

Westside detached home sales and listing activity in June continues to trend below the long term averages.

Compared to the 10 year average, the westside supply was down 17% for detached homes, up 3% for apartments and up 4% for townhomes.

Compared to the 10 year average, the westside demand was down 42% for detached homes, down 20% for apartments and down 2% for townhomes.

Median home prices in June are down 8.4% for detached homes (from the peak Oct.2017), 3.3% for apartments (peak Jan.2018) and up 1.9% (peak Feb.2022) for attached homes.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential property sales in the region increased 21.1% to 2988 in June from 2467 sales in June 2022. This is down 8.6% from the 10 year June sales average.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reported that the benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is $1,203,000 which is a 2.4% decrease from June 2022, and a 1.3% increase from last month.

The total number of properties currently offered for sale on the MLS system in Metro Vancouver is 9990, down 7.9% compared to 10,842 in June 2022 and still 17.4% below the 10 year seasonal average of 12,091 listings.

Low inventory levels are creating competitive conditions where almost any level of demand translates to price increases despite higher interest rates. said Andrew Lis, REBGV’s director of economics and data analytics. Below average sales and slow listing activity suggests sellers are waiting for more favourable market conditions but prices projected to be up 2% at year end are already up about 6%.

The fundamental reason prices continue to increase is that there have been more buyers than sellers in the market and that is keeping the supply of resale homes down. April has been the peak month for activity over the last couple of years but May this year jumped up closer to historical averages despite the mortgage rates and slow listing activity. 

June sales dropped dramatically as expected for the summer and combined with the interest rate increase, the market is slowing. Now that we are over 1 year since the rates started to increase we are seeing some sellers having to sell in the face of mortgage renewals and increased mortgage payments.

Have a great summer! πŸ¦‹πŸŒΏπŸŒžπŸ§ƒβ›±πŸŒŠπŸ¦

Stay safe and healthy.

Best regards,
