Victoria Market Overview - Sales continued their lethargy in August as is somewhat typical of a Victoria summer market. As the volume of transactions dropped (even from an already slow July), inventory kept near pace with the previous month with only 25 listings less on the market. Since the end of August, new listings have not been keeping pace as some buyers come back to the table.

Getting into the numbers - 478 properties sold in August in the Victoria region, 42.5% fewer sales than August last year and 6.3% less than July 2022. Condos were hit the hardest with only 148 sales (57.1% down year over year) while there were 249 single-family home
