Fraser Valley housing market signals further settling as sales continue to stall in response to interest rate rises

Robust active listings and relative steady sales activity continued to bring balance to the Fraser Valley real estate market in August. The past several months of rising inventory combined with a slowing trend in sales has also seen benchmark prices return to levels not seen since last year.

In August, the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB) processed 1,017 sales on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®), an increase of 2.4 per cent compared to last month and a 51.3 per cent decrease compared to this time last year.

The Board received 2,045 new listings in August, a decrease of 14.3 per cent compared to July, and only 2.9 per cent less than August 2021. The month ended with a total active inventory of 5,871, a decrease of 8.5 per cent from last month but up by 44 percent compared to August 2021. Once again August saw a balanced market in the Fraser Valley with an overall sales-to-active ratio of 17 per cent (the market is considered balanced when the sales- to-active ratio is between 12 per cent and 20 per cent).

“For the past three months we’ve seen the local market return to a more balanced state,” said Board President, Sandra Benz. “With the Fraser Valley continuing to settle after months of record sales and prices, we expect to see more activity this coming fall as buyers look to capitalize on the region’s reputation for providing greater value for the real estate dollar.”

Sales slide for fourth straight month as rising interest rates put brakes on Fraser Valley real estate market

The Fraser Valley real estate market saw sales fall again in July in the face of continued interest rate hikes, as the government struggles to bring inflation under control.

In July, the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB) processed 993 sales on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®), a decrease of 22.5 per cent from the previous month and a 50.5 per cent drop compared to July 2021, when the province was still in acute pandemic mode. July new listings totaled 2,385, a 28.4 per cent decrease compared to June and a decrease of 1.9 per cent compared to July 2021.

Active listings, at 6,413, remained relatively unchanged from June and were up 30.9 per cent over last July – bringing the sector into balance for townhomes and detached homes (sales-to-active ratios: 18 per cent and 12 per cent, respectively); and favouring sellers slightly for apartments (28 per cent). The market is considered balanced when the sales-to-active ratio is between 12 per cent and 20 per cent.

Fraser Valley housing market continues to cool amid slower sales, softer prices

Overall sales in the Fraser Valley fell for the third straight month as prices for all property types continued to soften, bringing greater balance to the region’s real estate market.

In June, the Board processed 1,281 sales on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®), a decrease of 5.8 per cent compared to May and a 43 per cent decrease compared to June of last year. Sandra Benz, President of the Board, said, “In just two months our market overall has shifted into balance mainly due to a softening of demand for single-family detached homes.

“The condo and townhome markets, although they have moderated, they continue to favour sellers as the sales-to-active listings ratios continue to trend higher, however with fewer multiple offer situations compared to previous months, it’s likely that we will see further softening in these property types as we return to pre-COVID work-life routines.”

Home prices soften as Fraser Valley housing market cools amid lower sales and higher inventory

As property sales continue to fall in the Fraser Valley and active listings continue to grow, the region is edging towards more balanced levels not seen since the pre-pandemic period.
Sales of all property types in May were 1,360, down 16.9 per cent from April’s 1,637; and down 53.9 per cent compared to May of 2021.

At the same time, active listings (the number of properties available for sale at a given moment during the month, in this case at the end of May) have more than tripled since December 2021. At the end of May, actives sat at 6,183, up 5.4 per cent year-over-year, and an increase of 14.8 per cent compared to April 2022.

The sales-to-active-listings ratio measures whether the market is balanced (12% to 20%) or favours either buyers (less than 12%) or sellers (greater than 20%). In May, the ratio for Fraser Valley all property types combined was 22 per cent, comparable to pre-pandemic conditions in early 2020. By comparison, during the pandemic, the ratio peaked at 92 per cent, indicating a strong seller’s market.

Fraser Valley sales dip below 10-year average for first time in nearly two years

Property sales in the Fraser Valley decreased by over 35 per cent in April 2022 compared to the previous month, and while the figure is still the sixth-highest April on record for the past ten years, it marks the first time monthly sales have fallen below the ten-year average since June 2020.

In April, the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB) processed 1,637 sales on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®), a decrease of 45.7 per cent compared to April 2021 and a 36.6 per cent decrease compared to March.

“We would typically see a flurry of activity around this time of the year,” said, FVREB President, Sandra Benz, “however that’s not been the case so far. While it’s still too early to say whether this trend will endure, the slowing of sales combined with an increase in active listings is helping to restore a semblance of balance to the market, which is encouraging for homebuyers.”
