It seems the fall weather hasn’t deterred sellers from entering the local property market last month, however buyers remained cautious, with demand levels sitting below the region’s long-term averages.
Andrew Lis, Director, economics and data analytics at the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) released comment as to why September’s records may have showed fewer buyers across Metro Vancouver*. He shared that, “With the Bank of Canada and other central banks around the globe hiking rates in an effort to stamp out inflation, the cost to borrow funds has risen substantially over a short period. This has resulted in a more challenging environment for borrowers looking to purchase a home, and home sales across the region have dropped accordingly.”
