Canadian Retail Sales (Nov) - January 22, 2021

Canadian retail sales rose for the seventh consecutive month in November by 1.3% on a seasonally-adjusted basis, defying Statistic Canada's preliminary estimate of no change.

2020 was full of unexpected market movements, along with everything else unexpected last year. Who could have predicted that a global pandemic, total disruption of the economy and a spike in unemployment would lead to skyrocketing demand from buyers looking for homeownership. And yet, there was a total of 8,487 home sales in 2020, over a thousand units more (17.1% more) than 2019.

December 2020 closed the year with strong sales numbers and record-breaking low inventory. Condos specifically showed impressive sales numbers in the Vancouver Island Board area with a 94% increase in sales volume compared to December 2020.

Single-family homes sales increased 25% year over year for the month of December (hitting 302 sales) but decreasing 28.2% from November. The decrease in sales is generally attributed to the lack of listings, not an easing of demand.

The number of single-family homes available on the market at the end of the year decreased 22% from the end of 2019 to hit 421 listings. Condos were down 24% in the same
