Local Residential Real Estate Exhibiting Typical Seasonal Activity

KELOWNA, B.C. – June 5th, 2024. Residential real estate activity in May showed signs of heading into a balanced market as inventory climbs, reports the Association of Interior REALTORS® (the Association).

A total of 1,512 residential unit sales were recorded across the Association region in May coming in above April’s 1,282 units yet 10.7% below May 2023’s units sold. “Market activity last month has risen compared to the month before. However, it's not surprising that this year's May activity is lower than last year's, considering the market was fairly heated a year ago,” says the Association of Interior REALTORS® President Kaytee Sharun, adding that “this is a pretty typical level of market activity that one would expect to see in the Spring months.” “There seems to be a return of consumer confidence with the gap between buyers’ and seller’s expectations narrowing that has helped ramp up market activity after a muted first quarter,” notes Sharun.

New residential listings saw a healthy increase of 15.8% compared to May 2023 with 3,618 new listings recorded last month. The total number of active listings saw an uptick of 43.2% of total inventory compared to May 2023 with 9,683 recorded across the Association region. The highest percentage increase in active listings was in the Central Okanagan region with a total increase of 58% compared to May 2023.

“With a healthy dose of inventory, we are seeing more balanced market conditions after years of the pendulum mostly swinging in the direction of a sellers’ market,” adds Sharun. The benchmark price for single-family homes saw decreases in the Central and North Okanagan regions in year-over-year comparisons, while the South Okanagan and Shuswap/Revelstoke regions saw modest increases of 0.1% and 1.8%, coming in at $783,500 and $729,100 respectively. 

Benchmark pricing in the townhome housing category saw decreases in the Central and South Okanagan regions compared to May 2023 while the North Okanagan and Shuswap/Revelstoke regions saw mild increases of 1.1% and 0.4%. In the condominium housing category, all regions, with the exception of the South Okanagan, saw consecutive decreases in the benchmark price for May 2024 compared to the same month last year.

PROVINCIALLY SPEAKING 

Markets Remain in Balance Heading into Summer

Vancouver, BC – June 13, 2024. The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) reports that 8,075 residential unit sales were recorded in Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) systems in May 2024, a 11.6 per cent decrease from May 2023. The average MLS® residential price in BC in May 2024 was down 1.5 per cent at $1 million, compared to an average price of $1.02 million in May 2023. The total sales dollar volume was $8.1 billion, a 13 per cent decline from the same time the previous year.

"Markets could not match the surge in home sales that occurred this time last year," said BCREA Chief Economist Brendon Ogmundson. "However, we are starting to see a pick-up in sales activity to more normal levels, which, combined with rising inventory, is helping to keep markets in balanced territory."
 
Year-to-date, BC residential sales dollar volume was up 2.7 per cent to $31.5 billion, compared with the same period in 2023. Residential unit sales were flat year-over-year at 31,573 units, while the average MLS® residential price was up 2.6 per cent to $997,899.
