Victoria real estate market update Inventory Change for the week


Once Again we see the return to a reducing of the inventory, for 11 out of 12 weeks in the past 3 months  We believe last week was just a minor glitch in an otherwise slowly improving and strengthing marketplace, for most areas and property types in and around Greater Victoria.

The balance and confidence in the Greater Victoria real estate market is returning.There are still segments in the real estate market that are a bit softer than others, but clearly we can now truly talk about a real estate recovery in and around Greater Victoria for most property types and locations.

In our conversations with agents, buyers and sellers there appears to be an overal sense that buyers and sellers are expecting or planning to be moving before the holidays. We are starting to see increased viewings and showings on active listings to kick off the Fall selling season.With interest rates stable and not likely to move any direction for the next little while, we can actually see confidence and desire to move return and improve on a daily base.

We anticipate that this will result in further increased sales results between now and the end of November even early December. If you are planning of being settled in before the holidays this is the time to start thinking about taking action......

Notes on our Weekly Review 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 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.

Peter and Linda, you do a great job with your market reports. Amazing that your inventory is being reduced like it is. This will drive the price up as you have aptly stated. Have a great week.

Hi Cal,

Thanks for your feedback, yes the market is slowly loosing its surplus inventory, (not fast but steady) which over time will firm up the Victoria real estate sales and prices.
