"Enthusiasm finds the opportunities, and energy makes the most of them." - Henry Hoskins

 

Attached are the Sales and Listings Stats updated to the end of June 2015. June sales volume in Greater Vancouver were the highest since May 2007 and the sixth highest monthly total ever. It was the first time in history where residential sales have been over 4,000 units four months in a row. Consistency is a key to the market and right now it is consistent demand and a consistent lack of supply. There were 4,444 units sold in Greater Vancouver in June 2015, up 7% from May 2015 and up 29% from June 2014. The number of Active Listings is down 23% compared to the same time last year. With 3 month’s supply of listings in the market, it is a Seller’s Market compared to a more balanced market last year and a Buyer’s Market in 2013.

 

There were 22,041 units sold for the first 6 months in Greater Vancouver, up 30% compared to the first 6 months in 2014 and up 59% to the first 6 months in 2013. It has been the highest first half for sales since 2005 and 2004, and the third highest in Real Estate Board history. Total new listings for the first 6 months of 2015 are 8% below the 10 year average. The lack of supply is certainly contributing the price increases in the market and the existence of multiple offers being experienced. With July and August typically seeing new listings decline, this trend is likely to continue. With strong demand continuing, it certainly provides opportunity for those Sellers wanting to come on market. It seems it won’t be a summer of discontent for Sellers but a continuation of Buyers competing.

 

In the Fraser Valley, June 2015 sales were up 41% compared to June 2014. It was the fourth busiest month for MLS sales in the Fraser Valley. New listings in June increased by 12% providing for some relief in the number of total active listings. Demand within the Fraser Valley appears to be local and consistent with local movement for upsizing and downsizing.
