December 2022 Greater Vancouver Real Estate Market Insights

Welcome to the January 2023 episode of the Presale Pulse, a real estate show brought to you by hosts Ryan Lalonde and Suzana Goncalves. Watch the video to understand the latest macroeconomics, pre-sale, and resale trends over the last 30 days affecting the local real estate market across Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.

"As expected, December inventory levels were down, allowing for a solid same-month sales absorption. All eyes will be on Lunar New Year Incentives as programs aim to hit pre-sale requirements and new programs test market depth on larger scale projects. These incentives started in December and will likely run until mid-February, allowing programs to maximize effectiveness and results." - Suzana Goncalves, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing
