1 PRESIDENT Kyle Kerr PRESIDENT ELECT Cheryl Woolley SECRETARY TREASURER David Langlois PAST PRESIDENT Ara Balabanian DIRECTORS Jackie Adkins Sandi-Jo Ayers Bill Ethier Karen Dinnie-Smyth Andrew Plank EXECUTIVE OFFICER David Corey November 1, 218 The Victoria real estate market s return to balance not linear, but also not unexpected A total of 598 properties sold in the Victoria Real Estate Board region this October, 9.9 per cent fewer than the 664 properties sold in October of last year, but a 12.2 per cent increase from September 218. Sales of condominiums were down 15.5 per cent from last year in October with 18 units sold, but up 2.8 per cent when compared to September 218. Sales of single family homes were down 14.7 per cent from 217 with 289 sold this October, 1.4 per cent more than the previous month. We continue to see the housing market shift into a more balanced state, though the trajectory is not smooth, says Victoria Real Estate Board President Kyle Kerr. This month had slower sales compared to last year and a slightly lower level of inventory coming into the market, but it also had an increase in sales from last month, which may surprise some people. The moderating changes over last year have been punctuated with some competition and price pressure on lower and mid-priced homes while the upper end of the market has softened slightly. Right now pricing is key across all segments as we transition to a more balanced market. There were a total of 2,51 active listings for sale on the Victoria Real Estate Board Multiple Listing Service at the end of October 218, an increase of 31.8 per cent compared to October 217 but 5.1 per cent fewer than the month previous. The market is definitely reacting to the changes in mortgage lending requirements, adds President Kerr. Lending was made tougher to dampen the market and these measures have certainly had an impact on purchasing power. The threat of the looming Speculation and Vacancy tax has also cooled development in our area, which is unfortunate because the only way to create affordable homes in our area is to build them. We hope that moving forward the municipal, provincial and federal governments will work collaboratively to enable more supply at all levels of housing by funding public / private partnerships to support the increase of home stock in our area. We hope that aside from taxation and mortgage rules, governments will work together to ensure a future supply in our area to stabilize prices in the long term. The Multiple Listing Service Home Price Index benchmark value for a single family home in the Victoria Core in October 217 was $83,1, while the benchmark value for the same home in October 218 increased by 6.1 per cent to $881,, slightly lower than September's value of $883,7. The MLS HPI benchmark value for a condominium in the Victoria Core area in October 217 was $457,5, while the benchmark value for the same condominium in October 218 increased by 9.86 per cent to $52,6, slightly less than September's value of $53,.

The active listing count and the sales count can be viewed as indicators of housing supply and demand respectively. Observing the ratio between them can thus help indicate a "buyers' market", where there is downward pressure on prices, and a "sellers' market", where there is upward pressure on prices. - below 1, there is downward pressure on prices (buyers' market) - above 25, there is upward pressure on prices (sellers' market) - in the 15-2 range, there is little pressure on prices either way (balanced market) Victoria Real Estate Board October 218 Statistics

4 MLS HPI benchmark and value - Single Family Homes The Victoria Real Estate Board uses the MLS Home Price Index (MLS HPI) to report on market trends. The MLS HPI uses the concept of a benchmark home, a notional home with common attributes of typical homes in a defined area. Through the analysis of over ten years of Victoria Real Estate Board MLS sales data, the MLS HPI defined benchmark homes for Victoria in each category (single family homes, townhouses, condos) and for each neighbourhood. The benchmark starting point was 25, where each type of property and neighbourhood was assigned an index value of 1. Victoria Real Estate Board October 218 Statistics

The active listing count and the sales count can be viewed as indicators of housing supply and demand respectively. Observing the ratio between them can thus help indicate a "buyers' market", where there is sustained downward pressure on prices, and a "sellers' market", where there is sustained upward pressure on prices. Based on a regression analysis performed by the Economics Department of the BC Real Estate Association in each market area of the province, the Sales to Active Listings Ratio for Victoria can be interpreted as follows: - below 14, there is downward pressure on prices (buyers' market) - above 2, there is upward pressure on prices (sellers' market) - in the 14-2 range, there is little pressure on prices either way (balanced market) Victoria Real Estate Board Multiple Listing Service
