Sales and listings stats are attached as of April 15, 2019. April sales volumes are similar to that of March and down from April of last year. But the number of listings on market has increased and signs of the number of new listings in April are higher than last year and March of this year.

"Your big opportunity may be right where you are now" – Napoleon Hill

 

Attached are the Sales and Listings Stats updated to the end of March 2019. Ok, next! Let’s just move on to April! But for those looking for a recap, there were 1,743 sales in Greater Vancouver in March 2019, the lowest total for the month of March since 1986. So here is what we know; it was a slow month for home sales, buyers and sellers are both hesitant in the market, The Federal Government announced their budget in March and provided little in the way of benefits to buyers in our market area and now we see fixed interest rates coming down. Here’s what we don’t know; while fixed rates are falling, how far will they fall, will there be federal election promises to boost the housing market prior to October’s election, where will the inventory of resale homes go after moderately increasing in a slower market for sales. And what don’t we know: how many buyers and sellers are waiting eagerly on the sidelines to make a move – pent up demand is growing! And policy changes can only keep that demand down for so long.

 

The 1,743 homes sold in Greater Vancouver in March were up from 1,512 (15%) from February this year. This was compared with 2,551 sales (down 35%) in March last year and 3,632 sales in March 2017. This was 45 per cent below the 10-year average for March. In looking around Greater Vancouver, both Vancouver’s Westside and North Vancouver saw the most significant increases in sales month over month at 33 per cent and 35 per cent respectively. While West Vancouver, Port Coquitlam and Tsawwassen had sales in March lower than February. In Burnaby East there were zero detached house sales in March. Regional markets are different in their make up and activity, but we typically see Vancouver be a leading indicator in the market. So again, let’s move into April.

 

On the other side of the equation, there were 5,057 new listings in March in Greater Vancouver, up from 4,557 in March last year and up from 3,974 in February 2019. The number of new listings in March were 12 per cent below the 10-year average for March. There are currently 13,408 Active Listings on the market in Greater Vancouver – up from 9,037 at the end of March last year. While Active Listings are up 48 per cent, they are still relatively low compared to previous markets with similar activity. In 1998 there were 1,921 sales in March with 19,488 Active Listings and in 2013 there were 2,373 sales with 16,322 Active Listings. The lack of inventory is still keeping buyers at bay in some areas. In Vancouver’s Westside the amount of detached homes for sale decreased in March to 694 from 713 in February, an unusual trend for a spring market.

 

“Housing demand today isn’t aligning with our growing economy and low unemployment rates. The market trends we’re seeing are largely policy induced,” Ashley Smith, Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver president said. “For three years, governments at all levels have imposed new taxes and borrowing requirements on the housing market. What policymakers are failing to recognize is that demand-side measures don’t eliminate demand, they sideline potential home buyers in the short term. That demand is ultimately satisfied down the line because shelter needs don’t go away. Using public policy to delay local demand in the housing market just feeds disruptive cycles that have been so well-documented in our region.”

 

The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,221 sales of all property types on its MLS® in March, a 24.3 per cent increase compared to sales in February 2019, and a 26.6 per cent decrease compared to the 1,664 sales in March of last year. Of the 1,221 total sales, 462 were residential detached homes, 300 were townhouses, and 346 apartments. This was the lowest sales total for the Board for March since 2013. Darin Germyn, President of the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, said “From a buyer’s perspective, there are more opportunities available as we move deeper into spring. Many of our communities are seeing higher inventory levels, especially in the attached market with the number of available townhomes almost doubling and Fraser Valley condos more than doubling compared to last year.”

Attached are the Sales and Listings Stats updated to the end of October 2018. Two things came in October – rain and a few more sales in the market. As is the case with October, activity does increases as do the number of new listings.

 

There were 1,995 homes sold of all types in Greater Vancouver in October this year compared with 3,073 sales in October last year and 2,284 homes sold in October 2016. This was 27 per cent below the 10 year average for October and almost the same level as October 2012 at 1,979. In fact, when we look at 2012, so far, each month has tracked very similar for sales levels. With the main difference being the inventory levels. – much lower than in 2012. There continues to be a hesitation in the market right now While prices on the detached side of the market have been falling over the last year, we are now seeing this occur in the apartment and townhouse market in some areas and product types.  There were 642 Detached Houses sold in October 2018 down from 945 (down 38 per cent) in October 2017 in Greater Vancouver, and down from 659 in October 2016. For townhouses there were 344 sales in October 2018 compared to 550 in October 2017 (down 37 per cent), down from 403 October 2016 and for condos there were 985 sales in October 2018, a decrease in sales from 1,532 in October 2017 (down 36 per cent) and compared to 1,178 in September 2016. Overall there has been an increase in market activity for October compared to November as we typically see. Although the bigger increases in homes sold has been in Vancouver, North Vancouver and West Vancouver. Ladner actually saw less sales in October compared to September and areas like Burnaby, New Westminster and the Tri-Cities saw lower per centage gains in comparison. The average prices in those areas also dropped while Vancouver saw a gain.

 

As for supply in the market, there was an increase in the number of new listings in October compared to October of last year. There were 5,026 new listings in October in Greater Vancouver, up 8 per cent from October last year and up from 4,066 or 23 per cent from October 2016. The number of new listings in September 2018 were just above the 11 year average for September. Active Listings are at 13,682 for month end (up 36 per cent compared to October). Active Listings fell from 13,760 in September 2018 and will continue to do so as the year finishes. At the end of October 2012, the Active Listing count was 18,519 – 35 per cent higher than in today’s market. A significant difference from the last down market and indicative of strength in the market overall.

 

“The supply of homes for sale today is beginning to return to levels that we haven’t seen in our market in about four years,” Phil Moore, Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver president said. “For home buyers, this means you have more selection to choose from. For sellers, it means your home may face more competition, from other listings, in the marketplace. Home prices have edged down between three and fiver per cent, depending on housing type, in our region since June. This is providing a little relief for those looking to buy compared to the all-time highs we’ve experienced over the last year.

 

 

East of the Fraser River, the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,155 sales of all property types on its Multiple Listing Service® in October, a decrease of 36 per cent compared to 1,779 sales in October of last year, and a 12 per cent increase compared to sales in September 2018. Of the 1,155 sales processed last month 306 were townhouses and 292 were apartments and 438 were detached homes. While slight, this is the first time since May that sales here have been on the upswing,” said John Barbisan, Board President. “We’re beneath typical activity levels for this time of year but it’s good to see that buyers and sellers are still finding success this season.”
