A Modest Easing for Unit Sales; With Sales Price Up Slightly for Vancouver WA Condos in August 2021.
Although Unit's Sold eased from last month, they posted the Second-Highest number we've recorded ever. Prices stopped their slide, and the short-term trend is matching the rise of the long-term trend-line. Active Inventory remains stubbornly below one-month's worth of Supply. Here are the key points for this month:
- The Short term Condo Sales Price (3-Month Moving Average) gained just under $5k and is now at $329,533; which is up 4.99% compared to the prior August; and the 12-Month Moving Average is at 11.78% compared to the prior year;
- 82 Resale Condominiums were sold, which is up 28 units compared to August 2020, and 9 fewer than last month;
- REO/Bank Owned Condominium sales came in at 2 units (2.44% of total); up from 0 (0% of total) in August 2020.
- Short Sale /Pre-Foreclosure property sales were 0 units (0% of total); no change from 0 (0% of total) in 2020.
The Active Inventory level actually fell slightly to 0.7 month's-worth-of-supply.
Next up we have my custom chart illustrating the Unit-Sales for the Vancouver Condo market Units-Sold trends - both short-term and long-term:

With two of the highest-ever one-month posting for unit-sales, the short-term trend is still moving up strongly; with the long-term trend at a new high but showing signs of slowing.
Moving along we have my custom chart for the Average Sales Price, showing both the short-term and long-term trends:

The short-term line has stopped its sliding and is now essentially matching the long-term line. Given the strength of the overall housing market we did not expect much more in the way of negative movement in this indicator at this time.
The final charts for this report show Unit Sales, Average & Median Prices; and Days on Market results (from RMLS chart-tools):
