Nov 1/22 Victoria Market Stats

November 1, 2022:   
A total of 480 properties sold in the Victoria Real Estate Board region this October, 35.6 per cent fewer than the 745 properties sold in October 2021 but a 17.1 per cent increase from September 2022. 
Sales of condominiums were down 39 per cent from October 2021 with 152 units sold. 
Sales of single-family homes decreased 32.2 per cent from October 2021 with 230 sold. “

Inventory has remained stable this month and for the first time since May 2022, we see a slight increase in the month-over-month sales,” says Victoria Real Estate Board President Karen Dinnie-Smyth. “We noted last month that the number of sales for September did not necessarily reflect the on-the-ground activity in the marketplace. October sales have shown what the industry has been experiencing, an increase in activity, more sales, and well-priced homes receiving plenty of attention – some receiving multiple offers. 

There were 2,192 active listings for sale on the Victoria Real Estate Board Multiple Listing Service® at the end of October 2022, a decrease of 4.7 per cent compared to the previous month of September but a 111.6 per cent increase from the 1,036 active listings for sale at the end of October 2021. 

The Multiple Listing Service® Home Price Index benchmark value for a single-family home in the Victoria Core in October 2021 was $1,216,900. The benchmark value for the same home in October 2022 increased by 10.2 per cent to $1,341,400 but was down 1.7 per cent from September's value of $1,364,200. 

The MLS® HPI benchmark value for a condominium in the Victoria Core area in October 2021 was $524,500, while the benchmark value for the same condominium in October 2022 increased by 14.9 per cent to $602,700, down by 2.4 per cent from the September value of $617,400.
