Lower Sales, Higher Housing Inventory, High Mortgage Interest Rates - January to June 2023

Residential Real Estate Market Report January 2024

Is Buyer Confidence improving? There was no rate change by the Bank of Canada so far this year, which seems to have helped buyers in their decision to move ahead with a purchase. Sales were slightly higher than last year. Inventory slowed somewhat but are still 11% higher than reported a year ago. Sales are still below long-term trends and will probably stay that way until interest rates start coming down.
