Looking back at the market results for June, there has been an overall decline in home sales and prices while the supply of homes continued to accumulate in Metro Vancouver. As per the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV), there were 2,077 residential homes sold in June 2019 which is a 14.4% decline from the 2,425 homes in May 2019. Sales were 34.7% below the 10-year June sales average, which is the lowest total for the month since 2000.

“We’re continuing to see an expectation gap between home buyers and sellers in Metro Vancouver,” said Ashley Smith, REBGV president. “Sellers are often trying to get yesterday’s values for their homes while buyers are taking a cautious, wait-and-see approach.”

There were 4,751 detached, attached and apartment properties newly listed for sale on MLS® last month which is a 10% decrease compared to June 2018 and an 18.9% decrease compared to May 2019. Overall, there is a total of 14,968 listings on MLS® which is a 25.3% increase compared to June 2018 and a 1.9% increase compared to May 2019.

“Home buyers haven’t had this much selection to choose from in five years,” Smith said. “For sellers to be successful in today’s market, it’s important to work with your local REALTOR® to make sure you’re pricing your home for these conditions.”

For June 2019, the sales-to-active listings ratio is 13.9% for all property types. Broken down, it is 11.4% for detached homes, 15.8% for townhomes and 15.7% for apartments. The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver dropped 9.6% from the same month last year to $998,700. This is the first time since May 2017 that the composite benchmark dropped below the $1 Million mark.

Detached Homes: 746 units sold (2.6% decrease from June 2018). The benchmark price decreased by 10.9% from June 2018 and increased by 0.1% from May 2019 to $1,423,500.

Apartments: 941 units sold (24.1% decrease from June 2018). The benchmark price decreased by 8.9% from June 2018 and decreased by 1.4% from May 2019 to $654,700.

Attached Homes: 390 units sold (6.9% decrease from June 2018). The benchmark price decreased by 8.6% from June 2018 and decreased by 0.6% from May 2019 to $774,700.

GREATER VANCOUVER SALES - Last month, the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports a total of 3,022 residential property sales within the Metro Vancouver area (7.1% increase compared to September 2017). The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is currently $1,042,300. This is a 12.4% increase over October 2016 and a 0.5% increase compared to September 2017.

"Conditions continue to vary significantly based on property type. The detached home market is well supplied with homes for sale, which is relieving pressure on prices," Jill Oudil, REBGV president said. "It remains a much different story in the townhouse and apartment markets. Buyers of these properties continue to have limited supply to choose from and are seeing upward pressure on prices."

Below you will find a comparative chart that depicts the Greater Vancouver residential sales from 2015 to present.

BC SALES - The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) reports a total of 8,677 residential property sales within BC (4.04% increase compared to September 2017). Total sales dollar volume was $6.25 billion, up 41.6 per cent from October 2016. The average MLS® residential price in the province was $720,129, up 18.7 per cent from October 2016.

"BC home sales trended higher in October, up 23 per cent from January on a seasonally adjusted basis," said Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief Economist. "A lack of supply in the resale market continues to put upward pressure on home prices in most BC regions."

Price of a typical composite Greater Vancouver home rises above the million-dollar mark for first time at $1,019,400. In July, there were 2,960 home sales in the Greater Vancouver area. Across all property types, the sales-to-active listings ratio for July 2017 is 32.2% – still a strong seller’s market, but an easing-off compared with June’s 45.5%. 

“Housing demand is inconsistent across the region right now. Pockets of the market are still receiving multiple offers and others are not. It depends on price, property type, and location,” said Jill Oudil, REBGV president. “For example, it’s taking twice as long, on average, for a detached home to sell compared to both townhomes and condominiums.”

As of July 2017, the benchmark price for detached properties is $1,612,400. This is a slight 1.9% increase compared with July 2016 and a rise of 1.5% in the month since June 2017. The benchmark price of an attached unit such as a townhouse or rowhome is $763,700 – 11.9% higher than July 2016 and a rise of 2.4% over June. The price of a typical condo-apartment in Greater Vancouver has risen to $616,600 – an 18.5% year over year increase and a 2.7% lift in a single month.
