September 2017 Fraser Valley Market Statistics

Here is the latest market statistics for Fraser Valley Real Estate Courtesy of the Fraser Valley Real Estate board:

Demand for Fraser Valley homes remains unchanged despite change of season

SURREY, BC – Residential property sales in the Fraser Valley remained strong in September, with both attached and
detached homes performing well throughout the region.


The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,619 sales of all property types on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in September, an increase of 24.1 per cent compared to the 1,305 sales in September of last year, and a 13.8 per cent decrease compared to the 1,879 sales in August 2017. This was the fifth highest sales total for a September in the Board’s history. Of the total sales processed 392 were townhouses and 470 were apartments, together representing 53% of market activity in September. “Often we see summer demand continue as far as October, so it’s not unusual to have another strong month before the seasonal cool down," said Board President Gopal Sahota. “What’s unusual this year is that attached inventory sales are still driving the market despite the increased competition we’re seeing there.” Last month the total active inventory for the Fraser Valley was 5,854 listings. Active inventory increased by 2.5 per cent month-over-month, and decreased 8.8 per cent when compared to September 2016.


The Board received 2,848 new listings in September, an 8.2 per cent decrease from August 2017, and a 5.1 per cent
increase compared to September 2016’s 2,709 new listings.
"It’s also interesting to observe the return to a balanced market for detached homes here in the Valley,” continued
Sahota. “While pricing remains stable, competition for houses has simmered and listings are staying on market longer. Ifyou were waiting to make a move or upgrade, now might be a good time to talk to your REALTOR® and see what’s out there.” For the Fraser Valley region the average number of days to sell an apartment in September was 19 days, and 18 days for townhomes. Single family detached homes remained on market for an average of 29 days before selling.
