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.
