Seasonal Decline for Unit Sales; With Sales Price Moving Up Deliberately for Vancouver WA Condos in December 2021.

We are late in the Season and Unit's Sold are declining as we expect. For the year we have seen a record total. Prices for the short-term trend are currently coming in close to the rising long-term trend-line. Active Inventory remains at the extremely low 0.3-month's worth of Supply. Here are the highlights for this month:

  • The Short term Condo Sales Price (3-Month Moving Average) gained eased $1,740 and is now at $335,808; which is up 14.63% compared to the prior December; and the 12-Month Moving Average is up 14.26% compared to the prior year;
  • 60 Resale Condominiums were sold, which is down 1 unit compared to December 2020, and 4 fewer than last month;
  • REO/Bank Owned Condominium sales came in at 1 units (1.67% of total); up from 0 (0% of total) in December 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 remained at the super-low 0.3 month's-worth-of-supply.       

Up next is my custom chart showing the Unit-Sales for the Vancouver Condo market Units-Sold trends - both short-term and long-term:

We see at this time that the decline in Units Sold has been of such a magnitude to cause the long-term trend to decline as well (although not as steeply). Overall however, about 1/3rd more units have been sold this year.   

Continuing on is my custom chart for the Average Sales Price, illustrating both the short-term and long-term trends:

The short-term line has finished the year below its peak, and has not moved much in the past 3 or 4 months.  The long-term line is still rising but at this point it may be ready to stop rising. With Inventory quite low we do however expect to see prices at this level or, to begin rising again in the near term.

Our final charts for this report show Unit Sales, Average & Median Prices; and Days on Market results (from RMLS chart-tools):

Inventory-by-Month shows New Listings, Pending Sales and Closed Sales all in decline, which is typical for this time of year.

The middle graph shows both Closed Sales Prices and New Listings Average Price both posting reasonably strong marks this month but neither at their high for the year.

The final  graph shows a 1-Day decrease in the Average Days on Market; with the Median Days on Market declining by 6 days. The market is still very fast-paced by any historical standards.
