Federal Measures Make Impact on Victoria Real Estate Market

While prices held steady through most of the Greater Victoria region’s real estate market in October, government lending regulations have had the federal department’s desired “cooling effect” on year-over-year sales numbers.


Total MLS® sales for October 2012 were 373 compared to 483 in October 2011. During the month, 211 single family homes sold throughout the Victoria Real Estate Board’s region, compared to 260 in October 2011. The average price for single family homes was $576,720, down 2% from last October’s average of $590,539. The median price for the same period is down $24,000 (4.5%). Monthover-month, both sales volume and the sixmonth average for single family homes are flat. Active listings are 4,876. Overall sales for Greater Victoria are down 19%. Federal measures to slow real estate sales nationally are having a local effect. Our REALTORS® tell me that with the reduced amortization rates, many buyers are having trouble getting financing for the type of home that fits their needs, particularly first-time buyers. It’s important to note there are fluctuations across the region. Sales and prices are flat in the Core Municipalities, while sales are down on the Saanich Peninsula, with declined sales and prices on the Westshore. I strongly caution against reading too much into the numbers. Both activity and prices vary by sub-area. For some the sample size is always small, so a sale of one or two properties can result in a 50% change.

October 2012 Single-Family









TOTAL MLS® SALES October 2012 October 2011 373 483

There were 92 condominium sales last month, 37% fewer than during October 2011. Six manufactured homes sold compared to 10 during the previous October. Townhome sales declined 37% and the average price dropped from $428,040 to $387,769, a 9% decrease. For a full statistical report on October real estate results, go to For information on your own home or specific neighbourhoods, please consult a REALTOR® as prices and activity vary widely.

Real Estate Victoria


Jean Dunn

Your home has been cleaned, freshly painted and you are ready to put it on the market. Could you sell it by yourself? No doubt you could, but when you consider all aspects of the selling process, chances are you will choose to use the services of a REALTOR® -- a licensed, trained professional who has the knowledge and skills to ensure you get the best possible price and that the selling process goes as smoothly as possible. Frequently, people who attempt to sell their home without the help of a REALTOR® do so in hopes of saving the commission or fee. There is a good chance, however, that such an approach will not pay off as potential buyers will often submit lower offers in such cases. In addition, without the help of a REALTOR® and access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) it will likely take significantly longer to sell your home. The MLS® is best described as a co-operative marketing system to ensure maximum exposure of properties for sale. Fundamentally, it is a central registry of properties used by REALTORS® to match buyers with properties for sale. Before attempting to sell your own home, ask yourself the following questions: 1. Do you have sufficient knowledge to determine the price range for your home? Are you aware of changing market conditions and of recent sales of similar homes in your area? 2. Do you have the skills and resources to advertise and market your home effectively? 3. Do you know what types of financing are available? Are you informed about various financing methods? 4. Do you have a network of contacts to produce potential buyers and are you able to screen out unqualified prospects -- people who are just curious? Are you comfortable inviting strangers into your home at 9 p.m. because they saw your sign? 5. Are you available seven days a week to show your home? (Buyers will expect you to be available at their convenience, not yours). 6. Do you have good negotiating skills? Are you comfortable haggling face-to-face over the price? Will you be ready to reveal known defects of your home and are you familiar with your legal obligations in this regard? 7. Can you write a legally binding contract? Do you have offer forms readily available? Do you have a lawyer to advise you on essential terms that must be in the contract? 8. Can you close a sale? Are you familiar with the many steps required after an offer has been accepted?

PICKING THE RIGHT NEIGHBORHOOD ou have decided to buy a home. You've analyzed your budget, talked to a REALTOR® and figured out what kind of house you want. But, the most important step may have been left until last: picking the right neighbourhood.


Choosing not only the proper community, but also the right neighbourhood, can have a tremendous impact on your family's happiness and the value of your investment. The first thing many people do when considering a move is drive around various communities gaining a sense of which areas they like. Buyers find out how close the major highways are and if the neighbours keep their yards tidy. Most will make sure they know the location of the closest mall. But what about public transit, colleges, schools, libraries, parks, recreation centres and fire or ambulance stations? Is the local police station close to your prospective neighbourhood? All of these factors can make or break a decision to buy a certain property. Your REALTOR® can provide you with a wealth of general information on different neighbourhoods. For detailed information, it's a good idea to contact

the appropriate agency directly. Here are a few suggestions to consider: Contact the municipality

fire departments Ask them how many stations service the commu-

Municipalities have a wealth of information on hand. Some distribute brochures and booklets containing the locations of colleges, libraries, ambulance stations, hospitals, parks and transit stops. Municipalities have a wealth of information on hand. Some distribute brochures and booklets containing the locations of colleges, libraries, ambulance stations, hospitals, parks and transit stops. It's also a good idea to check the location of recreation centres, swimming pools, ice rinks and the like, along with the programs they offer. Call the local police and

nity and their locations. Also ask about response time to emergencies. Contact local School Boards The Greater Victoria, Saanich, Sooke and Gulf Islands School Districts will be able to give you information on the locations of elementary and secondary schools within their jurisdictions. It's a good idea to mark the

routes your children would take and then walk them yourself. Your REALTOR® and MLS® Your REALTOR® will be able to offer you general advice and information on many of the above topics. Remember, your REALTOR® has access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) and can provide you with a customized list of properties available for sale in the neighbourhood of your choice that meet your needs, wants and budget.
