While home buyers have remained active in Metro Vancouver throughout the summer, the supply of homes for sale has declined steadily since June.
The increased activity seen in the Lower Mainland’s commercial real estate market in the latter half of 2020 carried into the first quarter of 2021.
Metro Vancouver’s housing market saw more moderate sales, listings and pricing trends in July compared to the heightened activity experienced throughout much of the pandemic.
