October 2021 – Lower Mainland Monthly Update (REBGV & FVREB)

Record low inventory and strong sales indicate prices will increase

The most reliable indicator of market prices is the Sales to Active Listings Ratio (SAL). This is the ratio between the number of sales in a given month and the number of active listings at month-end.

In hotter markets in BC, a long-term analysis has shown that prices will usually act in the following ways:

  • 7+ Months of Inventory (Under 14% SAL): Prices will likely DECLINE
  • 5 – 7 Months of Inventory (14% – 18% SAL): Prices will likely be STABLE
  • Less than 5.5 Months of Inventory (Over 18% SAL): Prices will likely RISE
