alignment between home buyer & seller activity
Closer alignment between home buyer & seller activity helped bring greater balance to the Greater Vancouver housing market.
The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential property sales in Greater Vancouver reached 2,545 on the MLS® system in February 2012. This represents a 61.4% increase compared to the 1,577 sales recorded in January 2012, a decline of 17.8% compared to the 3,097 sales in February 2011 and a 2.9% increase from the 2,473 home sales in February 2010.
February sales in Greater Vancouver were the third lowest February total in the region since 2002, though only 151 sales below the 10-year average.
“With a sales-to-active-listings ratio of over 18%, we see fairly balanced conditions in our marketplace as we move into the traditionally busier spring season,” Rosario Setticasi, REBGV president said.
Last month’s new listing count was the second highest February total in Greater Vancouver since 1996.
At 14,055, the total number of residential property listings on the MLS® increased 12% in February compared to last month and increased 17.9% from this time last year.
“Region-wide we’ve seen relative stability in home prices over the last six months, but it’s important to do your homework and consult your REALTOR® because pricing can vary considerably depending on the neighbourhood and property type,” Setticasi said.
