โ€ขslight uptick in sales and inventory

โ€ขinventory remains stable

From our President Karen Dinnie-Smyth

โ€œInventory has remained stable this month and for the first time since May 2022, we see a slight increase in the month over month sales,โ€ says Victoria Real Estate Board President Karen Dinnie-Smyth. โ€œWe noted last month that the number of sales for September did not necessarily reflect the on-the-ground activity in the marketplace. October sales have shown what the industry has been experiencing, an increase in activity, more sales and well-priced homes receiving plenty of attention โ€“ some receiving multiple offers. If you are considering selling a property, the continually evolving market conditions this month reinforce the need for up-to-date analysis of how to price your home during this type of market. With many micro-markets within the Greater Victoria area conversations with your local REALTORยฎ on how the housing market is performing in your specific area will be crucial to your success.โ€
