Just as predicted, the housing market in BC is off to a strong start with 5,831 recorded residential unit sales on MLS which is a 33.2% increase in relation to January 2015. Correlating to those sales was a total sales dollar volume of $4.39 Billion which is a 69.1% increase compared to January 2015. Looking at BC's average MLS residential price, there has been an increase of 26.9% year-over-year. Below you will find two charts with comparative data between January 2016 and January 2015 and their respective percentage changes.  

"The BC housing market continues to build on momentum from a very strong 2015. Heightened demand is being met with the lowest level of supply in a decade, resulting in increased pressure on prices in much of the province." -- BCREA Economist, Brendon Ogmundson 

Despite the strong housing demand, MLS residential sales are forecasted to see a slight 6.2% decline for 2016. Additional information for this year's projections can be found on our last blog here

2015 was the strongest in the past few years with 102,517 MLS residential sales. Economists believe that this year will follow suit with strong consumer demand, however, with a slight 6.2% decline in sales bringing it under the 100k mark to a projected 96,100 units in 2016 and 98,000 units in 2017. A visual representation of BC's MLS Residential Sales are shown below starting from 2005 to 2017F. 

BC's relatively robust economy coupled with strong net interprovincial migration has subsequently led to the strong housing demand that we have been seeing. Residential sales over the next two years are projected to remain well above the ten-year average of 83,200 units. In addition to strong housing demand, the average MLS residential price in BC is forecasted at $677,200 (6.4% increase) in 2016 and a further 4.1% to $705,300 in 2017.

"The inventory of homes for sale is now at its lowest level in almost a decade," said Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief Economist. "Fewer homes for sale and strong consumer demand are expected to push home prices higher in most BC regions this year and in 2017." 

In line with the strong housing demand and low inventory levels, new home construction activity is expected to be on the rise to combat the issues of not having enough inventory to supply the high demand. This issue is particularly present on the South Coast.
