Is it a Buyers' Market? Is it a Balanced Market?


Sales-to-Active Listings

This indicator shows the relative balance between the demand for homes and supply of homes in the market. A high ratio denotes a market that is more in favour of sellers creating upward pressure on prices. A low ratio reflects a market in favour of buyers, putting downward pressure on prices. A balanced market is generally associated with a ratio between 0.15 and 0.20, where pressure on home prices is considered neutral.

June 4, 2012The number of properties listed for sale continued to increase in the Greater Vancouver housing market in May. The number of sales decreased year over year, but remained relatively constant compared to recent months.

 

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential property sales in Greater Vancouver reached 2,853 on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in May 2012. This represents a 15.5 per cent decline compared to the 3,377 sales recorded in May 2011.

 

May sales were the lowest total for the month in the region since 2001 and 21.1 per cent below the 10-year May sales average of 3,617. However, sales have been constant throughout the spring months, with 2,874 sales in March and 2,799 sales in April.
