It is fairly typical that early in the Year that we see available property inventory grow, and as long as there are not long periods of inventory growth, with very few sales we will continue to have a balance to improving market place in Greater Victoria
For the firtst time this year we see that the number of available properties in Greater Victoria increased (slightly). With an increase of only 18 properties we are really not adding any substantial numbers at this time of the year.
We feel that there is a a good start to the new year, and although it is to early know how this year will turn out, early signs are that the general public feels that with the lower prices, low interest rates and good supply, that the time has come to take advantage of some of the Pfanntastic Real Estate Opportunities available in the market place in Greater Victoria.
Further confirming that there is no doubt that we see a slowly improving and strengthening marketplace in Greater Victoria, for most areas and property types in and around the lower Vancouver Island region.
We also offer the Greater Victoria area, single family home market place reports for each community in and around Victoria. (you can read these reports here).
In short, dependent what your plans are with your real estate decisions, it is very important to consult with your trusted real estate expert to develop a strategy that will optimize your options and opprtunities. (we would like to apply to become your trusted expert).
We continue to point out in our weekly review.......115 Price Changes in one week,(read mostly price reductions).
"Deciding on The Right Asking Price is by far the most important decision sellers make to assist the sale of their property and why properties are Selling"
"(or why they are not selling)."
- It is our experience, that if sellers want to sell their property in this still softer and more fragile market, our best advise to potential home sellers is to trust your agent and the price recommendations they offer you based on their comprehensive market value evaluation.
- If you need a 2nd opinion, please do not hesitate to contact Peter and Linda Pfann, and it will be our pleasure to complete either a summary evaluation for you (see below) or provide our 60+ page, complete evaluation report which also includes our suggestions for optimizing the marketing results for your property.
Notes on our Weekly Review statistical information:
- If The Number of Properties Removed from the Market Exceeds the New Inventory for a longer period of time (3-4+ months) the market is active, and prices will level and eventually increase.
- When The Number of Properties Added to the Inventory Exceeds the Number of Properties Removed from the inventory for a longer period of time (3-4+ months), the market is slowing down and prices will remain level or likely reduce.
- Monitor our Victoria Real Estate Daily Market Watch over a period of time and you can easily see how the Victoria Real Estate Market is progressing.
- As always it is nearly impossible to apply the generalities of the entire market place to your particular personal situation, we encourage you to always best to consult with your local real estate specialist (in Greater Victoria that would be Peter and Linda Pfann off course). It would be our pleasure and privilege to review and discuss all your plans, dreams and options, in total confidence and without obligations.
