Vancouver Real Estate Statistics for August 2013


Attached are the Sales and Listings Stats updated to the end of August 2013. This was definitely a better August than last year and the highest number of units sold in the month of August since 2009. We saw total sales in all areas well above what we saw last year. But as is typical with August, sales were down from July as a lot of people took advantage of vacation time and summer activities. With that, the total number of new listings was down from July but up slightly from August 2012. Total Active listings on market continued to decline in August with Month’s Supply of Active Listings up marginally due to a decrease in total sales for the month.

Here’s a summary of the numbers:
