Home buyers remain active across Metro Vancouver despite a reduced supply of homes for sale.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential property sales in *Metro Vancouver reached 3,646 on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in October 2015. This represents a 19.3 percent increase compared to the 3,057 sales recorded in October 2014, and a 9 percent increase compared to the 3,345 sales in September 2015.

Last month’s sales were 36.2 percent above the 10-year sales average for the month.

“Home sales are more than one-third above what’s typical for this time of year yet the supply of homes for sale is the lowest we’ve seen in five years,” Darcy McLeod, REBGV president said. “This activity has created favourable market conditions for anyone considering selling their home today.”

New listings for detached, attached and apartment properties in Metro Vancouver totalled 4,126 in October. This represents an 8 percent decline compared to the 4,487 new listings reported in October 2014.

The total number of properties listed for sale on the real estate board’s MLS® is 9,569, a 30 percent decline compared to October 2014 and an 11.4 percent decline compared to September

This is the lowest active listing total in Metro Vancouver since December 2010.

The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is currently $736,000. This represents a 15.3 percent increase compared to October 2014.

The sales-to-active-listings ratio in October was 38.1 percent. Generally, analysts say that downward pressure on home prices occurs when the ratio declines below the 12 percent mark, while home prices often experience upward pressure when it reaches 20 percent, or higher, in a particular community for a sustained period of time.

Sales of detached properties in October 2015 reached 1,437, an increase of 13.1 percent from the 1,271 detached sales recorded in October 2014, and a 34.7 percent increase from the 1,067 units sold in October 2013.
