NEWS FLASH Competitive Pricing Still Key in Victoria's Hot Real Estate Market

A total of 1,174 properties sold in the Victoria Real Estate Board region this June, an increase of 29 per cent compared to the 910 properties sold in June last year.

"When we look at month over month numbers, sales are down almost 9 per cent in June compared to the record breaking sales we saw in May, which may be due to the very low inventory available," notes Mike Nugent, 2016 President of the Board. "It's likely that sales would be higher were there more on the market to buy, but with the current conditions people may be hesitant to give up the homes they have."

Inventory levels remain lower than the year previous, with 2,289 active listings for sale on the Victoria Real Estate Board Multiple Listing Service® at the end of June 2016, 42.8 per cent fewer than the 4,003 active listings at the end of June 2015.

"June marks the halfway point for 2016. By this time last year 4,282 properties had sold," adds Nugent. "In the same six months this year, 6,181 properties have sold. If sales continue at a similar rate, we may meet the total sales from last year by the end of the summer. However, this may depend on available inventory, which continues to decrease."

The Multiple Listing Service® Home Price Index benchmark value for a single family home in the Victoria Core in June, 2015 was $594,700. The benchmark value for the same home in June 2016 has increased by 21.9 per cent to $724,900.

"Even in this market, price and strategy are important," says Nugent. "It's smart to engage a local REALTOR® to identify a price point and marketing strategy to sell your property. We have seen many multiple offer situations and record breaking numbers in the past few months, but there are properties that sit unsold. Sellers trying to test the upper price limits in their specific range will find that buyers are as discerning as ever. Even in this market there is no guarantee of sale."

Victoria BC


Victoria, British Columbia... what's not to like?!! With it's mild climate producing liquid sunshine in the winter in place of snow, it is becoming the destination of choice for Baby Boomers all over the world.

Victoria is a metropolitan City that has many residents of British descent, but is increasingly attracting buyers world wide. Even with the currency change with our closest neighbor, United States, it is little wonder that American citizens are still flocking to Victoria and buying luxury ocean front condominiums, view properties and ocean front estates. With prices on the rise, Victoria is expensive but not when compared with other top tourist destinations. Check out other international tourist destinations then look again at our prices and I think you will agree that there is a lot of room for increase yet!

Golf? You bet! There are many amazing golf courses in the South Island area. These include the ocean front Victoria Golf and Country Club, Olympic View with its waterfall backdrop on one hole and many others... most open all year long.

If you want a get away, check out one of our luxury hotels. Included are the Empress, Laurel Point and Delta Ocean Pointe all overlooking the inner harbour. Fine dining includes Hunter's Steakhouse, Chandlers on Wharf, The Marina in Oak Bay and Pescatore's Fish House, just to name a few. Attractions include the world renown Butchart Gardens, Royal BC Museum, Royal Wax Museum, Craigdarroch Castle and of course whale watching. This is not a boring one horse town, but you can go for a carrige ride through the streets!
