End of March 2013 Vancouver Real Estate Stats

Vancouver real estate inventory numbers

 

Attached below are the Sales and Listings Stats updated to the end of March 2013. March saw the real estate market blooming, becoming stronger and more balanced. In most market areas, the number of properties sold was higher than they have been since last spring and summer. The number of new listings coming on market continues to be at below average levels. For Greater Vancouver, new listings in March 2013 were down 16% to March 2012 and down 38% to March 2011. With fewer properties to choose from, Buyer engagement is improving. While still conscious of price, there is a realization that new listings priced at today’s prices are moving quicker than we have seen.
