What Does The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board Have To Say?

Unusual end-of-year demand for Fraser Valley real estate

SURREY, BC – A combination of unseasonably high demand and declining supply reinforced Fraser Valley’s real estate market in November.

The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,405 sales of all property types on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in November, an 11.7 per cent decrease compared to sales in October 2019, and a 36.7 per cent increase compared to the 1,028 sales in November of last year.

Darin Germyn, President of the Board, says, “Some listings are seeing a lot of activity depending on location and property type. REALTORS® are reporting more showings, higher traffic at open houses and even some multiple offer situations, which is atypical for the time of year.

“For our region, a balanced market is when 12 to 20 per cent of active inventory is selling. In November, 33 per cent of our supply of townhomes sold, as did 29 per cent of Fraser Valley condos; indicating that the supply of attached properties isn’t keeping up with demand.”

There were 6,733 active listings available in the Fraser Valley at the end of November, a decrease of 8.5 per cent compared to November of last year and a decrease of 9 per cent compared to October 2019. The Board received 1,877 new listings in November, a 21.2 per cent decrease compared to October 2019’s intake of 2,383 new listings and a 9.6 per cent decrease compared to November of last year.

Germyn adds, “Buyers are seeing the effect that tighter supply has on prices. In early summer, the combined residential benchmark price was down 6 per cent compared to the same period last year; in November it was down by 3 per cent.”
