Good news for the Fraser Valley real estate market in March 2023 as sales increased for the second month in a row. However, sales are still below the usual seasonal numbers. The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board reported that 1,550 properties were sold, which is 72.6% higher than February 2023, but 39.9% lower than last year. This could be a turning point and is building consumer confidence; however, low supply continues to be a problem driving up prices in all regions, including the Fraser Valley. The growth in the real estate market is an encouraging sign of increased market stability for the Fraser Valley.
“While market demand continues to trend up, we still face an uphill battle on the supply side, which is keeping prices elevated,” said FVREB CEO, Baldev Gill. “The province will require sustained inventory growth of at least 25 per cent over each of the next five years in order to normalize inventories. Until then, we strongly advise buyers and sellers to consult with a REALTOR® to plan the best strategy.”
