Pace of the Greater Victoria real estate market steady into spring

A total of 761 properties sold in the Victoria Real Estate Board region this May, 27.5 per cent fewer than the 1,049 properties sold in May 2021 and a 7.6 per cent decrease from April 2022. Sales of condominiums were down 23.1 per cent from May 2021 with 250 units sold. Sales of single family homes decreased 31.7 per cent from May 2021 with 367 sold.

"The real estate market in Greater Victoria is returning to a steadier pace following the strange two years we experienced over the course of the pandemic," said 2022 Victoria Real Estate Board President Karen Dinnie-Smyth. "While inventory is still below historical levels for a spring market, it is now within our pre-pandemic five-year average, which is good news for buyers. The increase in inventory provides buyers with more options, and we are seeing market activity and price points differ within the unique neighbourhoods that make up Greater Victoria. During a changing market like the one we see now, it is more important than ever to have an expert on your side - whether you are buying or selling it's a great time to give your favourite REALTOR® a call."
