November 2018 Media Stats Package
Metro Vancouver homes sales down across all property types
Home buyer demand remains below long-term historical averages in the Metro Vancouver* housing market.
The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential home sales totalled 1,608 in the region in November 2018, a 42.5 per cent decrease from the 2,795 sales recorded in November 2017, and an 18.2 per cent decrease compared to October 2018 when 1,966 homes sold.
Last month’s sales were 34.7 per cent below the 10-year November sales average and was the lowest sales for the month since 2008.
“Home buyers have been taking a wait-and-see approach for most of 2018. This has allowed the number of homes available for sale in the region to return to more typical historical levels,” Phil Moore, REBGV president said. “This activity is helping home prices edge down, across all property types, from the record highs we’ve experienced over the last year.”
