May 2022 Fraser Valley Market Stats
Property sales continue to fall in the Fraser Valley and active listings continue to grow, as the region edges more towards balanced levels not seen since the pre-pandemic period.
Sales of all property types in May were 1,360, down 53.9 percent compared to May of 2021.
FVREB President Sandra Benz says 'Since March, we've seen sales come down with an accompanying increase in inventory, subsequently restoring much-needed balance and cooling our heated market'. She also added that 'While still early, it suggests
that as we gradually settle into a post-pandemic state of work and life, the big pandemic-era drivers – working from home and record low interest rates – may have run their course.”
Some notable stats:
- The FVREB single family detached home price has increased 26.2% from May 2021 to a Benchmark price of $1,712,500
- The FVREB townhome price has increased by 31.3% from May 2021 to a Benchmark price of $918,900
