Housing in Greater Victoria remains in high demand

May 03, 2021

"Comparing last year's April market to 2021 does not provide us any real insight into long term market trends," said Victoria Real Estate Board President David Langlois. "Instead of comparing to last year's numbers, we need to look at years before the pandemic to see how April 2021 compares to average. In the most recent five years pre-pandemic, the average number of sales in the month of April was 896. April 2016 holds the record for sales with 1,286 properties sold. The five-year average for active listings was 2,596, so we sit at more than one thousand homes fewer than a recent average level of inventory."
