Stats 17 11.pdf
Attached please find the latest statistics from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver.

The News Release headlines the continuing Metro Vancouver Real Estate trend of exceeding 10 year sales averages as last month transcends that of October by 15 percent. Robust activity in the apartment and attached sectors (due in part to the upcoming tightening of mortgage qualification) is behind most of the surge but with the sales-to-active listings ratio for detached properties now at 16.8 percent it suggests a rebound from the slide over the summer to that 12 percent threshold which triggers downward pressure on value. October 2017 total residential sales increase 35.3 percent from last October. Year to year new listings are 14 percent higher however total inventory of listed properties dips 0.1 percent October to October.
