The Neal Estate Group's Real Estate Market Update for Vancouver Island for July 2022

Posted by Ron Neal on Monday, July 18th, 2022 at 9:22pm.

Vancouver Island Real Estate continued the trend of sliding sales and increasing inventory, with more options for buyers but hurdles in affordability with rising interest rates.

Digging into the Numbers, on all of Vancouver Island, there was a total of 1170 properties sold in June 2022 (both Victoria Real Estate Board (VREB) and Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB). For a closer look at VREB numbers click HERE. Looking at the VIREB numbers, of the total 558 sales in that area 408 were single-family homes, 82 were condos and 68 were townhomes. Here is a breakdown of year-over-year and month-over-month percentages for each property segment:

  Year/year Month/month
Single Family Dwellings -23% -10%
Condos -37% -11%
Townhomes -11% -34%

Listings saw a big increase in the VIREB region, especially in the single-family home segment with a 107% year-over-year increase (and 23% from last month) to hit 1,204 active listings. There were also 222 townhomes and 295 condos on the market at the end of June, townhomes up 60% y/y and condos 43% up.
