BC Housing Demand Remains Mixed in October

"Housing demand remained mixed across the province in October," said Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief Economist. "Home sales across the Lower Mainland were down from the elevated levels of one year ago, but stabilized on a month to month basis. In contrast, home sales on Vancouver Island and in the interior of the province continue to post strong year-over-year gains." "The decline in the average residential price reflects a smaller proportion of transactions in the province originating in Vancouver," added Muir. Home sales through the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver fell to 31.4 percent of BC transactions last month, compared to 42.6 per cent a year ago. For full article click here
