Abbotsford, Mission, Surrey and Fraser Valley Real Estate Market Statistics – November 2021

According to the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, robust demand for Fraser Valley real estate continued in November, with the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB) recording the region’s second-highest volume of sales of all property types for the month – second only to November 2020.

In November, the FVREB processed 1,972 sales of all property types on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®), a decrease of 9.2 per cent compared to the 2,173 sales in November of last year, and a 1.8 per cent increase month-over-month compared to the 1,938 sales in October.

The Board received 2,096 new listings in November, a 4.2 per cent decrease compared to October’s intake and a decrease of 5.5 per cent compared to the 2,217 new listings received during the same month last year. The 10-year average for November new listings is 1,948, so last month finished slightly above normal levels.

Larry Anderson, President of the Board, said, “Lack of supply continues to be the biggest factor impacting the market. To see sales increase from October to November, even slightly, is un

“This is not an easy market. Buyers and sellers alike are relying on the experience and skill of their REALTOR® to help them navigate a lack of supply, multiple offer situations, and very fast turnaround times.”

November finished with 3,048 active listings, a decrease of 11.6 per cent compared to October and a decrease of 47.9 per cent year-over-year, and an 11.6 per cent decrease compared to last month. In a typical November market, inventory levels in the Fraser Valley would be more than double.

Baldev Gill, Chief Executive Officer of the Board said, “We’re seeing a number of factors at play, including historically low interest rates fueling purchases, with buyers aware that rates are likely to increase next year. “Our province has seen a strong economic recovery in most sectors through this pandemic, and this strength bolsters home purchasing decisions.”

For the Fraser Valley region, the average number of days to sell an apartment in November was 24 days, and 16 days for townhomes. Single family detached homes remained on market for an average of 24 days before selling.

MLS® Home Price Index (HPI) Benchmark Price

Average and median home prices are often misinterpreted, are affected by change in the mix of homes sold, and can swing dramatically from month to month (based on the types and prices of properties that sold in a given month). The MLS® HPI overcomes these shortcomings and uses the concept of a benchmark home, a notional home with common attributes of typical homes in a defined area.
