Sales To Active Listings Ratio
The blended sales to active ratio for all product types remained relatively unchanged at a balanced market level in December 2022. Detached homes had the biggest change, shifting closer to a buyer’s market, while condos shifted back towards a seller’s market during this period.
HPI Benchmark Prices
The Home Price Index (HPI) measures the price of a benchmark, or typical, property in a given market and is not influenced by the change in composition of properties sold, which can fluctuate quite significantly from month to month. As a result, this metric is a more pure and stable representation of market price change than average or median prices.
Yet again, benchmark pricing saw a month-over-month decrease across all product types. Prices for condos remained above those reported in December of last year, however, detached homes and townhouses dipped below last year’s figure by 0.2% and 5.1%. We anticipate the downward pressure on pricing will continue into 2023 as BOC tries to maintain economic stability.
Sales • New Listings • Active Listings
December saw a significant drop in new listings for all product types, with an average of 59% percent drop from last month, this resulted in a significant month-over-month decrease in active listings, though inventory did end the year above 2021 levels. Sales also declined across all product types at an average of 20.6%.
