The real estate market in January showed a continuation of year-end trends, with fewer new listings and a sharp decrease in sales. However, activity appeared to pick up towards the end of the month, leading to some urgency among active buyers, who had limited options to choose from. This resulted in multiple offers in some cases.

Despite this increase in activity, the market remained inconsistent overall. The Bank of Canada's decision to halt further rate hikes could bring stability, but elevated rates and persistent economic concerns are expected to lead to a softening market as more homes become available.

In North Vancouver, sales were down 42.7 per cent from January 2022 with 82 homes sold – the lowest monthly sales total since January 2009.

New listings were down 12.3 per cent from January 2022, while total listings were up 27.9 per cent from the same time, ending the month at 399 homes for sale – 26.7 per cent below the 10-year January average.

For all property types, the January 2023 sales-to-active listing ratio was 20.6 per cent.

By property type, the January ratios were: 12.9 per cent for detached houses, 26.9 per cent for townhomes, and 23.1 per cent for apartments.

In West Vancouver, sales were down 41.3 per cent from January 2022 with 27 homes sold. This is just the second time since January 2009 that West Van sales have dropped this low.
