Victoria MLS Statistics

November 1, 2017 , Victoria MLS Statistics ~ A total of 664 properties sold in the Victoria Real Estate Board region this October. This is 9.7 per cent fewer than the 735 properties sold in October last year.

“As expected, we saw fewer sales than this time last year,” notes Victoria Real Estate Board President Ara Balabanian.

“Looking at the longer term picture however, sales last month were 17.1 per cent above the ten year average of 567 properties for the month of October. The market is still very active here in Victoria, and this is in spite of the ongoing low inventory levels.”

There were 1,905 active listings for sale on the Victoria Real Estate Board Multiple Listing Service® at the end of October 2017. A decrease of 3.6 per cent compared to the month of September and 1.7 per cent fewer than the 1,938 active listings for sale at the end of October 2016.

The Multiple Listing Service® Home Price Index benchmark value for a single family home in the Victoria Core in October 2016 was $752,000. The benchmark value for the same home in October 2017 has increased by 9.3 per cent to $821,900. This is lower than July’s value of $834,200.

“The fact that we’ve seen such a controlled leveling off in the market. Directly following a year which felt so uncontrollable in terms of demand. Pressure on prices illustrates the depth and stability of the Victoria market.

An unstable market may have experienced a heavy correction or shift. Whereas in our market, sales are moderating at a reasonable rate.” adds President Balabanian. “In the coming months, we expect to see less inventory on the market. The year-end changes buyer and seller behaviours, their focus shifts to holidays and winter weather.

One unknown influence that may play on the winter market is the upcoming mortgage stress test. Some buyers may move their purchasing timelines forward, to make their home purchases before the stress test. Uninsured buyers (those with a downpayment of 20 per cent or more) becomes required January 1.”
