Last month was the highest selling June on record, according to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver’s most recent report. “Since March, we’ve seen more homes listed for sale in our market than in any other four-month period this decade,” said Dan Morrison, REBGV president.
However, “While we’re starting to see more properties coming onto the market in recent months, the imbalance between supply and demand continues to influence market conditions,” continued Morrison. The sales-to-active listings ratio was lower last month than it has been since February, but it didn’t slow overall residential property sales, which were 28.1% above the 10-year sales average for June, totalling at the 4,400 mark.
