Housing supply ample as buyers remain hesitant in September

SURREY, BC – The slowing of sales activity and expansion of overall inventory that has defined much of 2018 for the Fraser Valley housing market continued in September, with sales at their lowest point and inventory at its highest for the year.


The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,035 sales of all property types on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in September, a decrease of 36.1 per cent compared to the 1,619 sales in September of last year, and a 10.4 per cent decrease compared to sales in August 2018.


Of those 1,035 sales, 376 were residential detached homes, 250 were townhouses, and 274 were apartments. This was the lowest number of transactions in a month this year for each category.


“Buyers remain reluctant as the market continues to adjust,” said John Barbisan, President of the Board. “We’re seeing good things happening in terms of inventory, but it only opens the door so much while prices are moving at a much slower rate.”


Active inventory for the Fraser Valley in September finished at 7,647 listings, increasing 4.2 per cent month-over-month and 30.6 per cent year-over-year. This is the highest level of supply for the Fraser Valley since July 2015.


A total of 2,946 new listings were received by the Board in September, a 14.4 per cent increase from that received in August 2018, and a 3.4 per cent increase compared to September 2017’s intake.


“If you want to sell soon, the most important thing you can do to be successful is to price effectively. Talk to your REALTOR® who can help you understand what buyers are looking for in your local market.”


For the Fraser Valley region, the average number of days to sell an apartment in September was 33, and 32 for townhomes. Single-family detached homes remained on the market for an average of 39 days before selling.


HPI® Benchmark Price Activity 


• Single Family Detached: At $988,900, the Benchmark price for a single-family detached home in the Fraser Valley decreased 2 per cent compared to August 2018 and increased 1.1 per cent compared to September 2017.

• Townhomes: At $546,100, the Benchmark price for a townhome in the Fraser Valley in the Fraser Valley decreased 0.4 per cent compared to August 2018 and increased 9.5 per cent compared to September 2017.

• Apartments: At $438,700, the Benchmark price for apartments/condos in the Fraser Valley decreased 1 per cent compared to August 2018 and increased 22.5 per cent compared to September 2017.

If you need to upsize or you’re simply ready for a change, it’s tempting to consider a major renovation. After all, renovating means you don’t have to go through the process of selling your property and buying another more suitable home. You just fix up the one you’ve got!
 
However, you need to carefully consider the pros and cons of renovating before going this route. You don’t want to invest in a costly renovation only to end up with a home that still doesn’t meet your needs.
 
Say, for example, your current property doesn’t have a home office. Since all the bedrooms are taken, you decide to renovate a portion of the basement. Building that new home office may seem like a simple project, but once you consider new electrical, flooring, lighting, etc., it really isn’t. Like most renovations, it will probably cost more than you think. Plus, you’ll need to consider whether you’ll really want to work in the basement.
 
In this case, it might make more sense to find a new home with an extra bedroom that can be converted, or, better still, a dedicated home office space — with windows!
 
Of course, there are many circumstances in which a renovation may be the best way to go. If you don’t like your kitchen, for example, upgrading it may not only get you the kitchen you want, but also add value to your property.
 
Basically, you need to ask yourself: "Which is more likely to get me the home I really want – a renovation or a new home?"
 
If your answer is a new home, then there is probably a property on the market right now that would meet your needs. Let’s talk.
 
Thanks Aaron & Michelle

Fraser Valley sees further decline in activity in August

SURREY, BC – Market activity declined further in August with sales dropping to their lowest level this year.


The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,155 sales of all property types on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in August, a decrease of 38.5 per cent compared to the 1,879 sales in August of last year, and a 10.5 per cent decrease compared to the 1,290 sales in July 2018.


Sales of attached homes continued to represent over fifty per cent of all activity in the Fraser Valley this month, with 294 townhouses and 318 apartments selling in August.


“With demand slowing down and prices staying put, both buyers and sellers can expect to see an easing of competition with less multiple offer situations,” said John Barbisan, President of the Board. “Right now, effective pricing is key and will be the determining factor for a successful transaction.”


Active inventory for the Fraser Valley in July finished at 7,339 listings, decreasing 0.8 per cent month-over-month and increasing 28.5 per cent year-over-year. 2,575 new listings were received by the Board in August, an 11.8 per cent decrease from July 2018’s 2,921 new listings, and a 2.2 per cent decrease compared to August 2017’s intake.


“Our market continues to open up the further we get into the year, and that means you can make more considered, informed decisions if you’re looking to jump in,” continued Barbisan. “The best first step you can take is talking to a local REALTOR® who can help you determine your options and a plan forward.”


For the Fraser Valley region, the average number of days to sell an apartment and a townhome in August was 27. Single family detached homes remained on the market for an average of 35 days before selling.


HPI® Benchmark Price Activity 


• Single Family Detached: At $1,008,700, the Benchmark price for a single family detached home in the Fraser Valley decreased 0.9 per cent compared to July 2018 and increased 2.9 per cent compared to August 2017.


• Townhomes: At $548,300 the Benchmark price for a townhome in the Fraser Valley in the Fraser Valley decreased 1.7 per cent compared to July 2018 and increased 11.5 per cent compared to August 2017.

There are many good reasons to put your property on the market. Some examples include a relocation, the kids leaving the nest, the need for something bigger or smaller, and the list goes on and on.


However, there are also some less-than-obvious indicators that it may be time to sell.


Consider the following:


1. Your Property is no longer a Good "Fit"

Your home may have been perfect for you when you bought it. But things change. Families grow. Needs evolve. For any number of reasons, your property may no longer be a good fit for you. If that's the case, it makes sense to at least take a look at what's available on the market. Who knows? Your next "perfect" home may be for sale right now — within your price range!


2. The Neighbourhood is Changing

You may have been in love with the neighbourhood when you first moved in. But, over time, the characteristics of any area can change. Those changes don’t necessarily mean the neighbourhood is getting worse. In fact, it may be changing in a positive way; perhaps becoming more urban. But, "more urban" may not be what you want. So take a look at the direction your neighbourhood is heading. Ask yourself, "Do I still want to be living here in two years?"


3. You're Ready for Your Dream Home

Remember when you purchased your current property? Did it have every feature you wanted? Was it your dream home? Or, did you have to compromise on a few things, such as the size of the kitchen? If you had to make some tough choices back then, it might be time for you to finally get the home of your dreams.


Those are just three indicators it may be time for you to make a move. Of course, there are many others. 


If you've been entertaining the idea of selling your property and finding your next dream home, give us a call. We can show you what's available on the market, and keep you informed of new listings that match what you're looking for.

Inventory builds as summer slowdown hits

SURREY, BC – Overall housing supply continued to grow in July as sales dropped to their lowest point this year since January.


The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,290 sales of all property types on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in July, a decrease of 33.4 per cent compared to the 1,937 sales in July of last year, and a 11.2 per cent decrease compared to the 1,452 sales in June 2018.


Of the 1,290 sales processed last month 346 were townhouses and 337 were apartments, together representing 53 per cent of all transactions in July.


Active inventory for the Fraser Valley in July finished at 7,399 listings, increasing 3.6 per cent month-over-month and 23.9 per cent year-over-year.


“Despite a much healthier level of inventory, demand continues to be influenced by pricing and market barriers such as the mortgage stress test and rising interest rates,” remarked Board President John Barbisan. “On top of that, summer is busy for people and usually a slow season for real estate.”


2,921 new listings were received by the Board in July, a 7 per cent decrease from June 2018’s 3,140 new listings, and a 11.5 per cent decrease compared to July 2017’s intake.


“A slower market like this one is an excellent opportunity for buyers to explore their options and enjoy a more relaxed purchasing environment,” continued Barbisan. “If you’re looking, talk to your REALTOR® who can help you get a full view on everything available that fits your needs.”


For the Fraser Valley region, the average number of days to sell an apartment in July was 21, and 24 for townhomes. Single family detached homes remained on the market for an average of 31 days before selling.


HPI® Benchmark Price Activity 


• Single Family Detached: At $1,017,400, the Benchmark price for a single family detached home in the Fraser Valley decreased 0.1 per cent compared to June 2018 and increased 5.3 per cent compared to July 2017.

Inventory continues to climb in Fraser Valley as sales simmer

SURREY, BC – The Fraser Valley housing market kicked-off summer with a further increase to overall inventory and a downturn in sales across all major residential property types.


The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,452 sales of all property types on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in June, a decrease of 43.5 per cent compared to the 2,571 sales in June of last year, and a 17.4 per cent decrease compared to the 1,758 sales in May 2018.


Of the 1,452 sales processed last month 364 were townhouses and 392 were apartments, together representing 52 per cent of all transactions in June.


Active inventory for the Fraser Valley finished at 7,141 listings last month, increasing 6 per cent month-over-month and 30.1 per cent year-over-year.


“Demand is shifting back towards typical levels for our region, and market activity is reflecting that,” John Barbisan, President of the Board, said. “This has given our inventory a much-needed chance to recover and move the Valley towards a more balanced real estate landscape.”


The Board received 3,140 new listings in June, a 20.8 per cent decrease from May 2018’s 3,965 new listings, and a 15.3 per cent decrease compared to June 2017.


"One thing that isn’t changing quickly is pricing; prices are still increasing but we continue to see a gradual slowdown in upwards movement,” Barbisan continued. "If home prices are keeping you back from selling or starting to look for a new home, talk to a REALTOR® who can provide a comprehensive view of communities you're interested in and what opportunities are available there."


For the Fraser Valley region the average number of days to sell an apartment in June was 21, and 19 for townhomes. Single family detached homes remained on the market for an average of 26 days before selling.


HPI® Benchmark Price Activity 


• Single Family Detached: At $1,018,900, the Benchmark price for a single family detached home in the Valley decreased 0.2 per cent compared to May 2018, and increased 9 per cent compared to June 2017.
