The January 2022 Victoria real estate market month in review
Quotes from Victoria Real Estate Board President Karen Dinnie-Smyth:
- A cursory glance at our sales numbers could lead to the quick conclusion that our market is slowing down
- To put our inventory into context, last year broke the record for lowest inventory for the month of January.
- This January broke that record nearly in half and that lack of supply in the market really impacts what our end sales numbers are.
Now, some highlights from the monthly VREB report:
- A total of 474 properties sold in the Victoria Real Estate Board region this January, 26.6 per cent fewer than the 646 properties sold in January 2021 but an 8.2 per cent increase from December 2021.
