Sales activity continued to moderate through August, constrained by seasonal trends and a lack of inventory.

Traditionally August is one of the slowest months of the year, as many buyers, sellers, and agents take advantage of the good weather for time away.

The buyers that remained active were faced with limited new listings and a dwindling supply of homes for sale. The result was inconsistency in prices, as some homes, in certain segments, were well received with quick sales and exceptional prices; while some others in less active segments received more typical restrained summer interest.

Moving forward, we expect inventory levels to continue to define our market with an expected increase now that summer holidays are over.

In North Vancouver, sales declined for the fourth consecutive month, finishing August with 213 homes sold (down 14.1 per cent from July of this year, and 14.1 per cent from August 2020).
