the rennie advance - October 2019

Greater Vancouver's housing market continued to strengthen in September. Year-over-year sales rose by 46%, which was the largest increase since March 2015; meanwhile, year-over-year inventory declined by 4%, which was the first contraction since March 2018. As a reflection of these changing dynamics, median prices have shown signs of stabilizing in 2019.
