VANCOUVER, B.C. – October 2, 2012 – The summer of 2012 drew to a close in September with home sale activity well below historical averages in the Greater Vancouver housing market.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential property sales of detached, attached and apartment properties reached 1,516 in September, a 32.5 percent decline compared to the 2,246 sales in September 2011 and an 8.1 percent decline compared to the 1,649 sales in August 2012.

September sales were 41.6 percent below the 10-year September sales average of 2,597.

“There’s been a clear reduction in buyer demand in the three months since the federal government eliminated the availability of a 30-year amortization on government-insured mortgages,” Eugen Klein, REBGV president said. “This makes homes less affordable for the people of the region.”

New listings for detached, attached and apartment properties in Greater Vancouver totalled 5,321 in September. This represents a 6.3 percent decline compared to September 2011 when 5,680 properties were listed for sale on the MLS® and a 31.6 percent increase compared to the 4,044 new listings in August 2012.

At 18,350, the total number of residential property listings on the MLS® increased 14.1 percent from this time last year and increased 4.5 percent compared to August 2012.

“Today, our sales-to-active-listings ratio sits at 8 percent, which puts us in a buyer’s market. This ratio has been declining in our market since March when it was 19 percent,” Klein said.

The MLS HPI® composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Greater Vancouver is $606,100. This represents a decline of 0.8 percent compared to this time last year and a decline of 2.3 percent over last three months.

“Prices in the region remain relatively stable overall, although we do see some reductions in the areas that have had some of the largest price increases over the last year or two,” Klein said.

Sales of detached properties on the MLS® in September 2012 reached 594, a decrease of 37.9 percent from the 957 detached sales recorded in September 2011, and a 31.4 percent decrease from the 866 units sold in September 2010. The benchmark price for detached properties decreased 0.5 percent from September 2011 to $935,600.

Sales of apartment properties reached 676 in September 2012, a 26.7 percent decrease compared to the 922 sales in September 2011, and a decrease of 30.4 percent compared to the 971 sales in September 2010. The benchmark price of an apartment property decreased 0.7 percent from September 2011 to $368,600.

Attached property sales in September 2012 totalled 246, a 33 percent decrease compared to the 367 sales in September 2011, and a 35.8 percent decrease from the 383 attached properties sold in September 2010. The benchmark price of an attached unit decreased 2.7 percent between September 2011 and 2012 to $458,600.
