announcements: A Change in the BC Real Estate Market - 07/24/08 10:20 AM
After five years of blockbuster activity and double-digit price growth here in BC, real estate market conditions have slowed, and now favour buyers in many areas of the province.
Across the province, residential sales have declined 22 per cent in the first six months of this year, while available resale inventory has grown by 54 per cent to 57,000 active listings in June. In the Greater Vancouver area, inventory is at the highest level since 1998.

After all, the quiet winter months are not far away, and there will be lots of time for winter walks in the woods with no one else around, and long evenings spent around the woodstove reading and playing cards.
