There were 534 Single family home sales in May 2021 in the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board area. That is a 9% decrease in unit sales for single family homes in one month. Condos were up 13% to hit 150 sales. Townhomes were down 11% dropping just under 100 unit sales to hit 94. The year-over-year sales are still out of whack due to historic lows in the early pandemic days but the slight month over month decrease in sales is a hopeful sign that there may be more options for buyers in the future.

Those hopeful signs carried over into the metric that really matters for buyers and that is inventory. The number of available listings increased for both single family and townhome categories (9% for single family and 5% for townhomes), which is much needed

Canadian Inflation (May 2021) - June 17, 2021

Canadian inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), rose to 3.6% year-over-year in May, up from 3.4% in April. This is the highest level since May of 2011. Much of the increase in inflation was the result of base-year effects, as prices remained depressed in May of last year due to pandemic-induced shutdowns. On a seasonally adjusted month-over-month basis, the CPI was up 0.5% in May. The Bank of Canada's preferred measures of core inflation (which strip out volatile elements) rose an average of 0.2% from April, to 2.3% year-over-year. In BC, consumer prices were unchanged month-over-month and down from 3% year-over-year in April to 2.7% year-over-year in May.

Inventory continued to battle the tide that is massive sales volume in the Victoria area for the month of May 2021. Just as inventory showed hope in April by struggling past the end of month inventory of March, now May's demand (while still remaining near record high for the month), shows a slight possibility of a longer term decline by decreasing 6% in total sales volume compared to the previous month. Unfortunately, the sales decline was not enough to continue the gradual increase in inventory, instead leading to 4 fewer listings at the end of May compared to April.

Some of the sustained energy might be in part due to a last minute scramble to get in before the increase in stress test which came into effect at the beginning of June. Certainly,
