Normalization trend of home sales to continue in October

According to the British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA), residential unit sales totalled 7,666 as recorded by the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in October. This is an increase of 19.3% from the same month last year. The average MLS® residential price in the province increased 5.1% from October 2018, at $724,045. Total sales were also up by 25.4% at $5.55 billion, from the same month last year.

"Most markets around the province are returning to a more typical level of sales activity," said BCREA Chief Economist Brendon Ogmundson. "That recovery in sales and slower listings activity is putting upward pressure on prices in many markets."

Residential active listings were up 1% on MLS® from September 2018 to 36,567 units, down slightly when compared on a seasonally adjusted basis. Sales-to-listing ratio was recorded at 21%. With sales and listings down, the overall market conditions in the province have tightened.
