Greater Victoria Real Estate Listing & Sales Market Update, April 01 - 08, 2012.

For this First Week of April, and Beautiful weather, our typical spring rally is underway...with 326 new listings for the week the signs are starting "Pop Up" just like the flowers, and with 301  reported pending or completed sales for the week.  The Pattern of when Sales Complete and how this affects weekly stats repeats itsself (most sales complete and are reported at the end of the month).

It appears 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.

From our 2 Open Houses this weekend, Attendance at Open Houses remains very good and this further confirms a slowly improving and strengthening of confidence in our 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).

The Number of Price Changes for the Week.......160 Price Changes in one week,(read mostly price reductions).

"Deciding on The Right Asking Price" is by far the most important decision YOU as sellers can make to ensure 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.

Hi Juli,

Thank you for your feedback, our Victoria Market is showing some signs of improvments, but the inventory is still hampering us a bit

Hi Eileen,

Victoria is always more balanced compared to most areas and we are seeing some interesting market results with a few very high end sales skewing the monthly stats to some degreee.
