Vancouver market stats

Attached below are the Sales and Listings Stats updated to the end of June 2013.

As is typical in June, units sold tend to be lower than May as buyers and sellers gear up for summer and the end of school. But we did see an 11.2% increase in units sold for June 2013 over June 2012 in Greater Vancouver. This is the largest year over year increase in 2 years. In Greater Vancouver new listings in June were down 13.8% compared to May 2013 and down 12.4% compared to June 2012. Total Active Listings on market are down 6.2% compared at the end of June compared to end of June 2012. With an increase in fixed mortgage rates there will be an increase in buyer demand over the next few months which should help move through inventory in the market. Balanced conditions continue to be present in the market with a focus continuing to be on pricing. Competitively priced properties are getting buyer attention and selling quicker.
