While November may have seen fewer new listings come to market in the Central Okanagan than October, the month’s total was still well above what’s typical for this time of year. And as sales counts continue to dwindle, inventory has remained above the 2,000-home threshold now for the sixth consecutive month.
New listings were above average across the Greater Victoria’s housing market in November, with a growing number of owners putting their homes up for sale. Conversely, fewer eager buyers yielded fewer transactions and, consequently, an inventory level that is higher than it typically would be for this time of year.
Even though inventory declined in the Vancouver Region in November, sales counts were once again low enough that total listings came in above-average for the first time in more than four years.
