Vancouver Real Estate Statistics for September 2013


Attached are the Sales and Listings Stats updated to the end of September 2013. September was a continuation of the current trend, a real estate market on the upswing. For Greater Vancouver, September saw the most units sold in that month since September 2009 and came close to beating August sales – a feat not often accomplished over the last 25 years. Units sold in September this year for Greater Vancouver were up 64% compared to September 2012. Vancouver’s West Side finished with more units sold in September than August and far exceeded September 2012 (up 7% to August 2013 and up 67% to September 2012).  Listings continue to decline, with less new listings coming on market in September than is typical for this month. While reports may paint this as an overheating market, it really is a market coming into balance after a quiet period of activity over the last 18 months. But of course activity is product and area specific.
