As of mid-February (and Reviewing January), sales in Victoria are slower than they were this time last year but mainly due to the severely lacking inventory.

Despite the general “slowness”, it is still absolutely a HOT MARKET and it doesn’t seem as though there is any great news for buyers just yet. Most, as in well over half, of single-family homes are selling over asking price with multiple offers, and inventory, as stated, is still severely lacking.

The Market Update for the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board area is much the same as the South Island update so far this year (which can be read about here). Sales slowed just enough to allow a small increase in inventory but not enough to shift any of the clock's hands from pointing directly at Seller’s Market Time. 

Digging into the numbers, there were a total of 846 sales on all of Vancouver Island in January, 372 of which were in the VI Board area (VIREB) and 474 of which were in the Victoria Board area (VREB). Breaking down the VIREB sales by property type, 220 single-family homes, 91 condos, and 61 townhomes sold. The table below shows the sales volume change (VIREB) both annually and compared to the previous month.

Canadian Inflation (January 2022) - February 16, 2022

Prices rose year-over-year across all major components of the index, but prices were driven in particular by a 6.2% rise in shelter costs, the highest rate of appreciation since February 1990.
