Every Week Peter and Linda Pfann take a quick reading of the  Greater Victoria Real Estate Market (based on MLS information) for you. Below is our overview of the Victoria Real Estate Market over the past week.

Greater Victoria Weekly Residential, Real Estate Listings & Sales Update, Reported by the Victoria Real Estate Board for the Past Week.

Expired Listings Expired Listings 64
Reduced Inventory Inventory Removed (Canceled, Expired, Pending & Sold) Total for the Week. 349
  Inventory Change for the week -26

<!--StartFragment --> For the 4th week in a row we are reporting a slight reduction in inventory, which eventually will strengthen the balance in the local real estate market.

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.

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 you monitor our Victoria Real Estate Daily Market Watch over a period of time you can easily see if and or how the Victoria Real Estate Market is following a traditional or less usual pattern.
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 best to consult with your local real estate specialist (in Greater Victoria that would be Peter and Linda Pfann off course). It would be our pleasure and privilege to review and discuss all your plans, dreams and options, in total confidence and without obligations.

We have found, over the past 25 years, that early in the year inventory builds faster compared to at any other time of the year. During the mid to late spring we tend to start seeing a more balanced situation between number of new listings and listings back on the market, versus, sales pending, actual sales, cancellations and expired listings.
Later in the year we tend to see inventory decline a bit (as well as the number of sales).
On a monthly base you will typically also see that most sales will complete (ownership transfers) at or near the end of the month. These are the typical market movements, but one can never be certain of these trends to occur until one reviews the years events after it has happened....

If you are considering to purchase and or sell a property, the sheer volume of information available can be a bit overwhelming, it is our job to make your real estate plans and dreams become reality, in the process it would be our pleasure to simplify and streamline what can be a very emotional and confusing time in your life. If you have any questions, concerns, suggestions, we are here to assist you every step of the way.
