The average price of a single family home sold within the VIREB region in October was $324,190 down marginally from the October 2011 average price of $325,308. The number of reported unit sales was down last month when compared to a year ago. In October 2011 there were 301 single family homes sold, in comparison 272 unit sales were recorded in October 2012.
“The market remains generally stable, albeit with annual unit sales expected to be down about 3% this year,” explained Cameron Muir, Chief Economist with the British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA). “A modest increase in home sales is expected next year. However, consumer demand will nevertheless remain relatively muted as bumpy economic growth limits overall sales volume.”
