Real Estate Market Insight
With the expectation of BC Assessment price drops in January 2020 (expected average of -10% drop), we expected buyers to wait; however, this did not seem to be a large factor as we saw sales in the TriCities rise above 10-year averages for December. Home buyer confidence continues to rise but it will be interesting to see January listing levels to see if supply will meet the increased demand. December saw benchmark prices decrease from 0.8% to 3.0%.
The Tri-City market shows that the sales to active ratios are moving further into a sellers market. The sale-to-active ratio for Dec was .387 vs .274 for the 10-year December average.
