The summer heat has spilled over to the real estate market! This month the Fraser Valley remained in a Sellers Market.
Looking at the table above and seeing the ‘sales ratio’ you may ask how those numbers translate into a Seller’s Market. So we thought that this month we would dive into how we determine the market as a balanced, sellers, or buyers market.
First, what is a Sales Ratio? The Sales Ratio is the current inventory of homes that are selling. It is found by taking the number of sales and dividing
10% sales ratio=1 in 10 homes selling rate
33% sales ratip=1 in 3 homes selling rate
Make sense? We then take those ratios and compare them to benchmarks which determine if the market is balanced, favours buyers, or favours sellers.
- A buyers market would have a sales ratio of 11% or less
- A balanced market would have a sales ratio of 12-20%
- A seller’s market would have a sales ratio of 20% or more
Looking at the stats in the table above, you can see that we are in a seller’s market–and have been for the past several months. If you would like to learn more about the stats for your specific area–or are interested in chatting about putting your home on the market get in touch with us today. We would love to meet with you and help you understand what the market is doing in your area!
“While Sales are inching closer to the record-breaking pace of 2016, the market itself looks different…This year, it’s clear that townhomes and condominiums are leading the way.” Says the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver.

Another month, another market update! The real estate market in the Fraser Valley has remained a seller’s market over the past month.

Here is what we saw this month for inventory, sales, and sales ratio:
Surrey had an inventory of 748 homes with 366 sales. This gives a sales ratio of 49% White Rock/South Surrey had 565 homes listed, with 166 sold. Total sales ratio of 29% North Delta had less inventory at 153 homes listed, but 91 sold giving it a sales ratio of 59%.

At 63% MarketSpeed™ (sales-to-active listing ratio) we are officially in a seller’s market. But the question is: Why?
- Sales: 25% less than the previous year, and with an average list price of $623,000 giving us a 5% increase compared to this time last year, and a 2% increase month over month.
- Active Listings: Active listings totaled 3169 which is a 15% decrease year over year, but a 5% increase month over month
- Days on the Market: Homes were on the market for an average of 10 days in April, which is an 11% increase from last year, and 23% less than the previous month.
All of these factors play into producing a Seller’s Market in the Fraser Valley. If you are interested in learning about the stats in your area please contact us and we will be happy to send you a report!

Vancouver’s Red Hot Real Estate Market has become a news sensation. It’s in the headlines. It’s on TV. It’s in every other social media post you scroll through in your feed. But the question remains—what is actually happening in the market?
I teamed up with Geoff Lee of GLM Mortgage Group to cover this topic. We are bringing you the stats, the facts, and what you need to do to purchase a home in this crazy market. Click below to read my guest post!
Spring has officially sprung and with it the Real Estate market has picked up! In the spring we typically begin to see the market’s inventory become more saturated, an increase in buyers and a sense of urgency to buy. Below are the statistics for March for detached homes.
In comparison below are February’s statistics, showcasing a clear growth especially in the Langley, Cloverdale and Abbotsford area.
Another area that has been of interest over the past few months is the foreign buyers tax’s overall effect. The interest of foreign buyers appears to be levelling off, as they accounted for little more than three per cent of both the value and number of all transactions, according to the most recent property transfer tax data.
It is still unclear of the overall effect of the tax and how the recent announcement of the exemption from the tax if one is a skilled worker here under the provincial nominee program and/or is a foreign national who obtained permanent Canadian residency within a year of living in Canada. To learn more about the exemptions check out this article.
Back to the Fraser Valley though! This month shows the general growth of the market and the increase in overall sales. This will continue over the next few months making it a great time to put your home on the market! It is a great time to look at selling your home and by partnering us at Young Real Estate we promise to work with you to sell your home for more!! #SellingHomesForMore
