Slight shift in Fraser Valley market in May; sales edge down while inventory inches up

SURREY, BC Sales on the Fraser Valley Real Estate Boards Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in May remained at strong levels the highest since 2007 however, they softened slightly compared to April.

There were 1,969 MLS sales processed in May, a decrease of 2 per cent compared to April, however an increase of 21 per cent compared to the 1,633 sales processed in May of last year.

Jorda Maisey is the Boards President. Home sales in the Fraser Valley maintained a strong pace in May; however, we noticed a slight shift in the market. In certain areas, we saw interest in higher-end detached homes pick up while demand for attached homes, which typically appeal to first-time buyers, decreased.

The result is that the selection of apartments in the Fraser Valley improved in the last month creating greater opportunities for buyers. Inventory of detached homes and townhomes remains tight, keeping the market elevated.



Strong sales volumes continue through April

SURREY, BC Property sales in the Fraser Valley soared in April compared to one year ago increasing by 37 percent.

There were 2,009 sales processed on the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in April, compared to 1,470 in April of last year. These volumes rank third highest of all time for the month with the next best April in 2004 and prior to that in 1991.

April was a very active market, says Jorda Maisey, Board President. The low cost of borrowing continues to attract first-time buyers and families looking to either downsize or upsize as they take advantage of the equity theyve built up in their existing homes.



March property sales climb in the Fraser Valley

SURREY, BC In March, sales on the Fraser Valley Real Estate Boards Multiple Listing Service (MLS) reached the highest theyve been in nine years. The Board processed 1,857 sales, a 47 per cent increase compared to the 1,259 sales in March of last year. Sales during March of 2006 were 2,072.

Jorda Maisey, President of the Board, attributes the strength in the market to a number of factors. Our population is growing, interest rates continue to remain supportive of housing demand and consumers are confident. It all adds up to a desire to invest in real estate now.

In March, the Board processed 11 per cent more new listings compared to March 2014, however higher sales eroded the number of active listings. March finished with 8,193 active listings of all property types, 7 per cent fewer than available during the same month last year.
