Home sale and listing activity dip below historical averages in October
Reduced home sale and listing activity are changing market dynamics in communities across Metro Vancouver*.
Residential property sales in the region totalled 2,233 in October 2016, a 38.8 per cent decrease from the 3,646 sales recorded in October 2015 and a 0.9 per cent decrease compared to September 2016 when 2,253 homes sold.
Last month’s sales were 15 per cent below the 10-year October sales average.
“Changing market conditions compounded by a series of government interventions this year have put home buyers and sellers in a holding pattern,” Dan Morrison, Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) president said. “Potential buyers and sellers are taking a wait-and-see approach to try and better understand what these changes mean for them.”
New listings for detached, attached and apartment properties in Metro Vancouver totalled 3,981 in October 2016. This represents a decrease of 3.5 per cent compared to the 4,126 units listed in October 2015 and a 17 per cent decrease compared to September 2016 when 4,799 properties were listed.
Last month’s new listing count was 9.5 per cent below the region’s 10-year new listing average for the month.
The total number of properties currently listed for sale on the MLS® system in Metro Vancouver is 9,143, a 4.5 per cent decrease compared to October 2015 (9,569) and a 2.3 per cent decrease compared to September 2016 (9,354).
The sales-to-active listings ratio for October 2016 is 24.4 per cent. Generally, analysts say that downward pressure on home prices occurs when the ratio dips below the 12 per cent mark for a sustained period, while home prices often experience upward pressure when it surpasses 20 per cent over several months.
“While sales are down across the different property types, it’s the detached market that’s seen the largest reduction in home buyer demand in recent months,” Morrison said. “It’s important to work with your local REALTOR® to help you navigate today’s changing trends.”
The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is currently $919,300. This represents a 24.8 per cent increase compared to October 2015 and a 0.8 per cent decline compared to September 2016.

This represents a 20.5 per cent increase compared to October 2015 and a 0.3 per cent increase compared to September 2016.

Matt and Leo had the incredible opportunity to participate in the 8th Annual RE/MAX European Convention in ROME!
Learning global RE/MAX best practices and connecting with REALTORS all around the world may not be a once in a lifetime experience, but certainly not one that comes every day!
The 8th European Convention, which took place in Rome last week, was once again a resounding success. More than 1,000 people from 38 countries came together in incredible spirits, ready to connect and make the most of the strong RE/MAX network.
In the vibrant Italian capital, we brought the RE/MAX Symphony of the Best to life – a symphony made of all the outstanding talents and individuals in our network. Together we created an amazing atmosphere, shared ideas, gained new inspiration and learned from industry leaders both from inside and outside the RE/MAX network.
We all left Rome on a high note and full of energy, taking new motivation and fresh ideas back home with us.
