Abbotsford, Mission, Surrey and Fraser Valley Real Estate Market Statistics – August 2022

Abbotsford, Mission, Surrey and Fraser Valley Real Estate Market Statistics – August 2022

According to the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, the Fraser Valley housing market signals further settling as sales continue to stall in response to interest rate rises

Robust active listings and relative steady sales activity continued to bring balance to the Fraser Valley real estate market in August. The past several months of rising inventory combined with a slowing trend in sales has also seen benchmark prices return to levels not seen since last year.

In August, the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB) processed 1,017 sales on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®), an increase of 2.4 per cent compared to last month and a 51.3 per cent decrease compared to this time last year.

The Board received 2,045 new listings in August, a decrease of 14.3 per cent compared to July, and only 2.9 per cent less than August 2021. The month ended with a total active inventory of 5,871, a decrease of 8.5 per cent from last month but up by 44 percent compared to August 2021. Once again August saw a balanced market in the Fraser Valley with an overall sales-to-active ratio of 17 per cent (the market is considered balanced when the salesto-active ratio is between 12 per cent and 20 per cent).

“For the past three months we’ve seen the local market return to a more balanced state,” said Board President, Sandra Benz. “With the Fraser Valley continuing to settle after months of record sales and prices, we expect to see more activity this coming fall as buyers look to capitalize on the region’s reputation for providing greater value for the real estate dollar.”

Benchmark prices continued to fall across all property categories, bringing them in relative line with prices from December 2021 and eating into year-over year gains.

“With possible further hikes in interest rates this fall, homebuyers need to augment their decisions with critical advice and guidance,” said Baldev Gill, Board CEO. “Along with other professionals such as mortgage brokers and lawyers, Fraser Valley REALTORS® are a vital part of the team advising buyers and sellers on market realities and identifying potential opportunities that align with their objectives.”

Across the Fraser Valley in August, the average number of days to sell a single-family detached home increased to 33 and for townhomes to 26 days. Apartments took, on average, 25 days to sell.

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.

Less pressure on buyers in August in the Victoria real estate market.

A total of 478 properties sold in the Victoria Real Estate Board region this August, 42.5 per cent fewer than the 831 properties sold in August 2021 and a 6.3 per cent decrease from July 2022. Sales of condominiums were down 57.1 per cent from August 2021 with 148 units sold. Sales of single family homes decreased 30.3 per cent from August 2021 with 249 sold.

“August is typically one of the slower months for real estate in the Greater Victoria area and this year was no exception,” says Victoria Real Estate Board President Karen Dinnie-Smyth. “After two years of market conditions that favoured home sellers, sales have diminished in the past few months and inventory levels have been slowly increasing.”

There were 2,137 active listings for sale on the Victoria Real Estate Board Multiple Listing Service® at the end of August 2022, a decrease of 1.2 per cent compared to the previous month of July but a 90.8 per cent increase from the 1,120 active listings for sale at the end of August 2021.

Greater Vancouver Real Estate Market Statistics – August 2022

Here are the latest real estate market statistics from Macdonald Realty on the Greater Vancouver listings and sales in August 2022. Find all the infographics by visiting the Facebook Album.

Metro Vancouver’s housing market is experiencing a quieter summer season marked by reduced sale and listing activity.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 1,870 in August 2022, a 40.7 per cent decrease from the 3,152 sales recorded in August 2021, and a 0.9 per cent decrease from the 1,887 homes sold in July 2022.

Last month’s sales were 29.2 per cent below the 10-year August sales average.

“With inflationary pressure and interest rates on the rise, home buyer and seller activity shifted below our long-term seasonal averages this summer,” Andrew Lis, REBGV’s director, economics and data analytics said. “This shift in market conditions caused prices to edge down over the past four months.”

There were 3,328 detached, attached and apartment properties newly listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in Metro Vancouver in August 2022. This represents a 17.5 per cent decrease compared to the 4,032 homes listed in August 2021 and a 16 per cent decrease compared to July 2022 when 3,960 homes were listed.

The total number of homes currently listed for sale on the MLS® system in Metro Vancouver is 9,662, a 7.3 per cent increase compared to August 2021 (9,005) and a 6.1 per cent decrease compared to July 2022 (10,288).
