The market seemed quite slow in December, 2022 according to the December stats report published by the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. However, our internal data showed it is not entirely the case. All of our listings got sold with very competitive prices very quickly and we encountered multiple offer situations again while acting for buyers. Buyer and seller’s expectations seemed to have reached an equilibrium. It is expected that Bank of Canada will increase interest rate again in January, 2023, I am curious to see if buyers are more adjusted to the new “Reality” after a year of multiple rate hikes.
