Market Statistics - October 2016


It's becoming more apparent that the malaise that has hit the single-family housing market is going to affect the market for at least a few months. Condo sales have still been pretty brisk, with some going in multiple offers. Generally, the buyers are taking a little more time to evaluate a property and aren't as driven by the "fear of missing out" or FOMO, as they were in the summer.

I have to say that this is a real blessing for many people as they are given more time to spend on the required due diligence once they have an accepted offer. Inspectors can breathe a sigh of relief as they once again are being hired for most deals.

Included below are the latest statistics for real estate in the REBGV (Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver) and FVREB (Fraser Valley Real Estate Board) areas. You will find a clickable link to each area below which will open up as a separate PDF file.
