Every Week Peter and Linda Pfann take a quick barometer reading of the  Greater Victoria Real Estate Market (based on MLS information) for you. Below is a slightly crude method to see what activity has occurred  in the Victoria Real Estate Market over the past 24 hours.

When you monitor our Victoria Real Estate Daily Market Watch over a period of time you can easily see if and or how the Victoria Real Estate Market is following a traditional or less usual pattern.
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.

If you are considering to buy or sell real estate in and around greater Victoria, and want to know more about your area of choice or where your current property is, We also offer a Pfanntastic Web based Tool, that will keep you informed about Market activity  (new listings, sales and adjustments) stat, graphs and a variety of additional handy tools for your benefit. We call it Victoria Market Snapshot, and this amazing little tool will ask you a few questions, and will then provide you with a monthly snapshot of  the property type(s), location (s) and activity by emailing you a quick link to this totally personalized tool. Victoria Real Estate Market SnapshotThis Pfanntastic Market Snapshot Service is Free, the information is Invaluable, and will provide great insight and assistance in achieving your real estate objectives.

  We have found, over the past 25 years, that early in the year inventory builds faster compared to at any other time of the year. During the mid to late spring we tend to start seeing a more balanced situation between number of new listings and listings back on the market, versus, sales pending, actual sales, cancellations and expired listings.
Later in the year we tend to see inventory decline a bit  (as well as the number of sales).
On a monthly base you will typically also see that most sales will complete (ownership transfers) at or near the end of the month. These are the typical market movements, but one can never be certain of these trends to occur until one reviews the years events after it has happened....

In Greater Victoria over the past Week the Victoria  Real Estate Board reports  the following residential real estate market activity.


New Listings New Listings 405
Back on the Market Back On Market 16
Added Inventory Added to Inventory (New Listings & Back on the Market) Total for the Week 421
Price Change Price Changed 191

Sale Pending

Sales Pending 113
Sold Listings Sold 48
Cancelled Listings Canceled Listings 62
Expired Listings Expired Listings 57
Reduced Inventory Inventory Removed (Canceled, Expired, or Sold) Total for the Week. 280

When The Number of Properties added to the Inventory Exceeds the Number of Properties Removed from the inventory for a longer period of time (4+ months), the market is slowing down and prices will likely level or reduce.

If The Number of Properties Removed from the Market Exceeds the New Inventory for a longer period of time (4+ months) the market is active, and prices will be level and eventually increase..

If you are considering to purchase and or sell a property, the sheer volume of information available can be a bit overwhelming, it is our job to make your real estate plans and dreams become reality, in the process it would be our pleasure to simplify and streamline what can be a very emotional and confusing time in your life.  If you have any questions, concerns, suggestions,  we are here to assist you every step of the way.

Peter and Linda,

Although I don't have anyone moving to or from Victoria, it's an important and active location, and I like to follow it, as well as other "key indicator" cities.
