Canadian Retail Sales (October 2021) - December 21, 2021

Canadian seasonally-adjusted retail sales rose 1.6% to $57.6 billion in October. The rise was driven by a rebound in sales at motor vehicle and parts dealers (+2.2%) as new car sales (+2.8%) recovered from previous declines. The effects of the semiconductor shortage which had curtailed sales of new cars eased somewhat in October. Preliminary estimates, based on roughly 40.9% of respondents reporting so far to Statistics Canada, indicate that retail sales rose 1.2% in November.

In BC, seasonally-adjusted sales rose 0.3% in October. Compared to the same month last year, retail sales were up 1.6% in the province. Clothing sales rose the largest amount on a year-over-year basis in

Canadian Inflation (November 2021) - December 15, 2021

Canadian prices, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), rose 4.7% on a year-over-year basis in November, matching the rate in October. On a month-over-month basis, the CPI was up 0.2% in November. The Bank of Canada's preferred measures of core inflation (which use techniques to strip out volatile elements) rose an average of 2.7% year-over-year in November. Higher prices for gasoline (+43.6%), furniture (+8.7%) and food (+4.4%) were the main drivers of growth in the headline CPI. Continuing supply-chain difficulties continued contributing to price gains, but the flooding in BC had no effect as data was collected prior to the floods in November. In BC, consumer prices were

Inventory continued to decrease in November 2021 continuing a trend of historic under-supply in the Vancouver Island housing stock. Condo listings topped the drop with a 69% year-over-year decrease and a 23% decrease from October. Single family homes dropped 44% year-over-year and 24% from the previous month.

Sales volume, both due to seasonal factors and the highly restricted inventory, also decreased in November. Single-family homes specifically had 353 sales which was 16% fewer than last year. The condo segment saw 110 units change hands in November which was three units more than November 2020 and 12 sales less than October.

Historically low inventory continues to angle property sales in a downward direction in the Victoria real estate market. The region only saw 653 total property sales (17.9% less than November last year) and it is still clear that demand is at least greater than inventory if not still red hot.

While it is typical for this time of year for the market to slow down a bit we are still seeing frequent if not commonplace multiple-offer situations which indicates that buyers are less deterred by typical seasonal factors. There are also other indicators that the drop in sales is not purely seasonal.

Single family homes, for example, sold 18.6% less than the previous month with a total of 276 sales, but total listings decreased a whole 149 available units
