Rising interest rates, steady supply and falling demand suggest prices will continue to soften. Sales rallied a bit in Aug. vs July but another interest rate increase is forecast and that will be detrimental to any price recovery.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) METRO report says that residential property sales in the region decreased 40.7% to 1870 in August from 3152 sales in Aug. 2021. This is a 22.6% decrease from the 2444 homes sold in June 2022 and 29.2% below the 10 year Aug. sales average.

The total number of properties currently offered on the MLS® system in Metro Vancouver is 9662, up 7.3% compared to Aug. 2021 and down 6.1% from 10,288 last month. 

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reported that the benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is $1,180,500 which is a 7.4% increase over Aug. 2021 but is down 2.2% from last month.

For all property types, the sales-to-active listings ratio for July 2022 is 19.4%. For detached homes it is 12.2%, attached homes are 25.3% and apartments are 24.8%.

Downward pressure on home prices occurs when the ratio dips below the 12% mark for a sustained period, while upward pressure occurs when it surpasses 20% over several months.

Westside numbers suggest prices will soften. Supply will increase post summer holidays and rising interest rates makes it difficult to forecast prices.

Fall is just around the corner! 🍂🧣🧦🍁🥧
