The BC Home Hunter Group Forecast: White Rock & South Surrey has an average home and listing supply; 784 homes are for sale and with the 15 %SOLD monthly rate gives us a ~7 months of inventory. At this sell through rate approximately 466 of these listings will not sell. Importantly, 15% of the active listings have reduced their price by $57,970 on average or $43,100 median for the last month. We project White Rock South Surrey to be a continued Stable market. These statistics and analysis should further explain the issues and seriously negative impact of “over listing” your home or property.

In the Fraser Valley our very strong spring market extended beyond the normal seasonal trends. A change has now occurred with 42% of the Total Lower Mainland Markets now in a declining market. As our in house real estate analyst forecast, condominiums are leading the market value changes with 8 markets dropping and showing decreasing sale prices, while 4 increased.

 The BC Home Hunter Group project that in most Fraser Valley Areas in both the Lower End Markets and Higher End Markets, sales activity will slow, resulting in sale price decreases.
