Interest Rates Slow the Market

The interest rate increases have definitely done what they had been intended to do and have successfully quieted the housing market.


"With inflationary pressure and interest rates on the rise, home buyer and seller activity shifted below our long-term seasonal averages this summer. This shift in market conditions caused prices to edge down over the past four months."- Andrew Lis, REBGV Director, economics and data analytics.


Buyers are being very cautious about purchasing a home, or anything for that matter, with the promise of more interest rate increases coming this fall. Sellers are struggling with the lack of interested Buyers as well as adjusting their prices down to keep up with the market.


Sales in August were not only 30% down from last year, but nearly 30% below the last 10 year average. We are in a time of a changing market and it’s hard to know where we will be this time next year - only time will tell.


The Sunshine Coast is still the best neighbourhood in the Lower Mainland and the best value, being 20 to 30 percent lower than comparable areas of the Lower Mainland. Why fight the traffic when you can relax aboard a scenic cruise while catching up on rest or work during the 40 minute commute.

Gaining Inventory but Lacking Buyers


As we can see from the numbers we had had a definite increase in inventory for Residential Detached Homes, up to 265 from 181 this time last year. The increase could be largely to do with Buyers backing off which is causing a build up of homes on the market. We are still low on Attached Homes with only 37 on the market, which is the lowest we have seen it. Is that due to the Attached Homes being more affordable then Detached Homes? Or is it just a fluctuation in the market? We will have to see where it goes next month to find out.


Although there is an increase in inventory there is still a lack of Buyers out there which I believe is largely due to the uncertainty in the interest rates this coming fall. On the flip side, Buyers have a lot more to choose from and are not typically having to compete for homes. Inspections are happening again and there is time to think and mull things over and even going back and forth in negotiations! It is a welcome change for the Buyers. In the Sellers situation it is a little more difficult, as they need to be more patient and aren't able to get the quick deal firm on their homes that they may have been hoping for.


Sunshine Coast is still the best neighbourhood in the Lower Mainland and the best value, being 20 to 30 percent lower than comparable areas of the Lower Mainland. Why fight the traffic when you can relax aboard a scenic cruise while catching up on rest or work during the 40 minute commute.

A Slow in the Market

The opening statement of our Market Update last year was:

"This last month we have seen a definite slow in the market. Things are still moving along well but not flying off the shelves like they were a few months ago. Buyers are able to get into homes without having to forgo inspections or offer way above asking, which has been a welcome change for all of them!"


It's interesting because it is a similar feeling to what we have now. This year we have slowed the last few months largely due to the rising interest rates but it is also a time where families are going on vacation, people are taking time off to relax and getting some much needed R&R. This is a natural time for the market to quiet. I will be curious to see what happens in the fall when the market would tend to pick up - Will the interest rates keep the market quiet? Or will we see another upswing? It's "a crystal ball agazing" as one might say but it's a beautiful time of year here on the Sunshine Coast and I hope everyone is enjoying it.


The Sunshine Coast is still the best neighborhood in the Lower Mainland and the best value, being 20 to 30 percent lower than comparable areas of the Lower Mainland. Why fight the traffic when you can relax aboard a scenic cruise while catching up on rest or work during the 40 minute commute.
