November 2023 Metro Vancouver Entry-Level Newer-Home Resale Market Report

November 2023 Metro Vancouver Entry-Level Newer-Home Resale Market Report


Excluding the single-family market, active listings declined across all submarkets throughout the month, including one and two-bedroom condos as well as townhomes.

The current high interest rate environment is contributing to a slower pace in the resale market.

The ongoing decline in the resale market for newer homes has resulted in some of the most favorable purchasing opportunities in years. 

As for the entry-level single-family market, every submarket is presently a firm buyer's market. In Westside Vancouver, the sales-to-listings ratio stood at five percent by the end of November 2023 (1 sold, 22 active listings), while Langley, registering zero sales in November 2023, has 36 active listings.

The performance of the one-bedroom condo market varies among submarkets. On one side, buyers are in control in Surrey City Centre and Westside Vancouver, with sales-to-listings ratios of 11 and 10 percent, respectively. On the flip side, South Surrey and Willoughby in Langley sellers are in control, with sold-to-listings rations of 150 and 46 percent, respectively.

Surrey, South Surrey, and Langley collectively account for more than half of the monitored townhome inventory and serve as the main contributors to new supply growth. These are also the only markets with inventory available for less than $1,000,000. 

Analyzing pricing trends of new presale projects for one and two-bedroom condos in the tracked markets indicates a narrowing gap with newer resale properties. This shift results from developers adjusting prices to match the current market. For potential buyers or investors eyeing presales, now could be an opportune moment, depending on the product type and location.

For individuals considering the resale market and capable of navigating the current high-interest-rate landscape, this could be an opportune moment to enter. Buyers hold sway across most markets, presenting excellent opportunities to secure remarkable deals.
