Continued Fall in Unit Sales and Prices for Vancouver WA Condos in May 2020.

With the Slow Re-opening of the Washington State economy, we are posting decreases in sales and prices for condos. However, new listings and pending sales are picking up so we'll need to watch to see what the longer term adjustments are. Here are the key points for this month:

  • The Short term Condo Sales Price (3-Month Moving Average) fell about $5k and is now at $285,671; which is up +3.55% compared to the prior May; with the 12-Month Moving Average is at 0.14% compared to the prior year;
  • 37 Resale Condominiums were sold, which is down 20 units compared to May 2019, and 1 more than last month;
  • REO/Bank Owned Condominium sales are still at 0 units (0% of total); no change from 0 (0% of total) in May 2019.
  • Short Sale /Pre-Foreclosure property sales were also at 0 units (0% of total); no change from 0 (0% of total) in 2019.
The Inventory level fell this month 0.2 to end the month at 1.4 months-of-supply.       

My custom chart up next shows the Units-Sold trends - both short-term and long-term:

At a time of the year where unit-volume should be strongly upwards, we are instead seeing a side-ways zig-zagging motion. Without a doubt this segment of the overall real estate market has been hit very hard.

Next I have my chart for Average Sales Prices highlighting the short-term and long-term trends:

While peaking a couple of months ago, the short-term trend is retreating, while the long-term trend is going horizontally.

The remaining set of graphs show Unit Sales, Average & Median Prices; and Days on Market results (from RMLS chart-tools):

Inventory-by-Month finds New Listings resuming an upward swing; while Pending Sales also moved up but not as strongly. Closed Sales only moved up by 1 unit. This month the combined impact was to see Active Inventory fall by 0.2 months.

The middle graph shows Closed Sales prices similar to last month; with the New Listings Average Price coming in extremely strong due to several new listings in the luxury category.

The final graph shows Average Days on the Market declining by several days; with Median Days on Market remaining about the same.
