Attached are the Sales and Listings Statistics updated to the end of October 2013. Once again, activity in the market for this October was an improvement over October 2012 - with a 37% increase in units sold in Greater Vancouver. As well, units sold in October 2013 were up 7% compared to September 2013. In fact it was the strongest October for sales since 2009. Total Active Listings are down 11% compared to this time last year – demand is much stronger and product on the market is continuing to decrease both month over month and year over year. Changes in pricing and overall market conditions vary depending specific areas and product. Realistically the market is balancing and not overheating as some reports may suggest with these the increases in sales we are seeing. Pricing is still extremely important, generally new listings with better pricing are attracting more attention than those that have been on the market for some time.
