Posted on July 13, 2018

Summer is in full swing, and last month we definitely saw some changes when it came to the real estate market in Metro Vancouver.  Overall, there were 2,425 total home sales in Vancouver, which was a 37.7% decrease compared to this time last year, and a 14.4% decrease compared to May 2018.  June 2018 may have brought us a decline in home sales, but we also saw a 3 year high when it came to the supply of homes for sale.
