  Inventory Change for the week


For the 9 th week in a row we are reporting a  reduction in inventory and Reasonable Sales results for the season, which eventually will strengthen the balance in the Greater Victoria  real estate market.

We are starting to see increased viewings and showings on active listings to kick off the Fall  selling season. We hope and anticipate that this will result in increased sales results between now and the end of November.


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 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.

Hi Peter and Linda. Nine weeks of reporting a reduction in inventory of homes is GREAT news for your area. I just love your color chars with all those stats too.

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for reviewing our market update, yes we are looking a little better, however the majority of the inventory reduction is due to expired and or cancelled listings, our sales volutme is still a bit softer than what it would be in a more optimistic market, but we are seeing improvements.
