Greater Victoria Real Estate Listing & Sales Market Update, May 21, - 28, 2013.

For this last full Week of May 2013, and fairly wet weather, our typical spring rally is underway...with 336 new listings for the week the signs are starting "Pop Up" just like the flowers, and with 277 reported pending or completed sales for the week. The Pattern of when Sales Complete and how this affects weekly stats repeats it’s self (most sales complete and are reported at the very end of the month). It appears that the general public feels that with the lower prices, low interest rates and good supply, that the time has come to take advantage of some of the Pfanntastic Real Estate Opportunities available in the market place in Greater Victoria. From our Open Houses this weekend, Attendance at Open Houses remains very good and this further confirms a slowly improving and strengthening of confidence in our marketplace in Greater Victoria, for most areas and property types in and around the lower Vancouver Island region. We also offer the Greater Victoria area, single family home market place reports for each community in and around Victoria. (you can read these reports here). In short, dependent what your plans are with your real estate decisions, it is very important to consult with your trusted real estate expert to develop a strategy that will optimize your options and opportunities. (we would like to apply to become your trusted expert). The Number of Price Changes for the Week.......268 Price Changes in one week,(read mostly price reductions).

"Deciding on The Right Asking Price" is by far the most important decision YOU as sellers can make to ensure the sale of their property and why properties are Selling" "(or why they are not selling)."

  • It is our experience, that if sellers want to sell their property in this still softer and more fragile market, our best advise to potential home sellers is to trust your agent and the price recommendations they offer you based on their comprehensive market value evaluation.
  • If you need a 2nd opinion, please do not hesitate to contact Peter Pfann, and it will be our pleasure to complete either a summary evaluation for you (see below) or provide our 60+ page, complete evaluation report which also includes our suggestions for optimizing the marketing results for your property.

Notes on our Weekly Greater Victoria Real Estate Listings and Sales Market Update statistical information:

  • If The Number of Properties Removed from the Market Exceeds the New Inventory for a longer period of time (3-4+ months) the market is active, and prices will level and eventually increase.
  • When The Number of Properties Added to the Inventory Exceeds the Number of Properties Removed from the inventory for a longer period of time (3-4+ months), the market is slowing down and prices will remain level or likely reduce.
  • Monitor our Victoria Real Estate Daily Market Watch over a period of time and you can easily see how the Victoria Real Estate Market is progressing.
  • As always it is nearly impossible to apply the generalities of the entire market place to your particular personal situation, we encourage you to always consult with your local real estate specialist, Talk To or Text Peter Pfann at 250-213-9490
  • It would be our pleasure and privilege to review and discuss all your plans, dreams and options, in total confidence and without obligations.
