Transition Year Expected for BC Housing Market

 The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) released its 2013 Second Quarter Housing Forecast today.

BC Multiple Listing Service (MLS) residential sales are forecast to edge up 1.9 per cent to 68,900 units this year, before increasing a further 6.5 per cent to 73,400 units in 2014. The five-year average is 74,600 unit sales, while the ten-year average is 86,800 unit sales. A record 106,300 MLS residential sales were recorded in 2005.

"Stricter mortgage credit regulation combined with slower economic growth has kept BC home sales at a cyclical low over the past three quarters," said Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief Economist. "However, a faster growing economy is expected during the second half of the year and through 2014 which will support a growth trend in provincial housing demand."

"The BC average home price forecast is revised upward for 2013, from a decline of 1 per cent to remaining unchanged, as a result of stronger than expected market conditions in Vancouver," added Muir. The average MLS residential price in BC is forecast at $515,800 this year, before rising 1.7 per cent to $524,500 in 2014.
