Balanced conditions provide a stable backdrop
for today’s home buyers and sellers

 

The Greater Vancouver housing market continues to maintain a relative balance between the number of homes for sale and the number of people looking to purchase a home in the region today.

 

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential property sales in Greater Vancouver reached 2,642 on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in June 2013. This represents an 11.9 per cent increase compared to the 2,362 sales recorded in June 2012, and an 8.3 per cent decline compared to the 2,882 sales in May 2013.

 

Last month’s sales were 22.2 per cent below the 10-year sales average for the month, while new listings for the month were 11.5 percent below the 10-year average.

 

“As the term suggests, a balanced market means that many of the key housing market indicators, such as price, are stable and conditions therefore don’t tilt in favour of buyers or sellers,” Sandra Wyant, REBGV president said. “If you plan to enter the market today, identify your needs, consult your REALTOR® and work to build a ‘win-win’ scenario with the people on the other side of the sale.”

 

New listings for detached, attached and apartment properties in Greater Vancouver totalled 4,874 in June. This represents a 13.2 per cent decline compared to the 5,617 new listings reported in June 2012 and a 13.8 per cent decline from the 5,656 new listings in May of this year.

 

The total number of properties currently listed for sale on the MLS® in Greater Vancouver is 17,289, a 6 per cent decrease compared to June 2012 and a 0.4 per cent increase compared to May 2013.

 

The sales-to-active-listings ratio currently sits at 15 per cent in Greater Vancouver. This is the fourth straight month that this ratio has been at or above 15 per cent.

 

The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Greater Vancouver is currently $601,900. This represents a decline of three per cent compared to this time last year and an increase of 2.3 per cent compared to January 2013.

 

Sales of detached properties reached 1,102 in June 2013, an increase of 19.7 per cent from the 921 detached sales recorded in June 2012, and a 25.1 per cent decrease from the 1,471 units sold in June 2011. The benchmark price for detached properties decreased 4.3 per cent from June 2012 to $919,900.

 

Sales of apartment properties reached 1,068 in June 2013, an increase of 4.1 per cent compared to the 1,026 sales in June 2012, and a decrease of 15.6 per cent compared to the 1,266 sales in June 2011. The benchmark price of an apartment property decreased 1.9 per cent from June 2012 to $369,100.

 

Attached property sales in June 2013 totalled 472, an increase of 13.7 per cent compared to the 415 sales in June 2012, and a 10.1 per cent decrease from the 525 attached properties sold in June 2011. The benchmark price of an attached unit decreased 2.4 per cent between June 2012 and 2013 to $457,000.
