July 2012 Housing Market Update for Greater Vancouver

 

Greater Vancouver housing market hits summer lull

Residential property sales in Greater Vancouver remained at a 10-year low in July, while the number of properties being listed for sale continued to edge down and prices remained relatively stable.

 

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports an 18.4 per cent decline in sales compared to the 2,571 sales in July 2011 and an 11.2 per cent decline compared to the previous month’s 2,362 sales.

 

July sales were the lowest total for that month in the region since 2000.

 

“With a sales-to-active-listing ratio of 11.6 per cent, conditions have favoured buyers in our marketplace in recent months,” Klein said. “That means buyers have more selection to choose from and more time to make a decision. For sellers, it’s important to price properties competively.
