Sell/list has recovered a bit since yesterday, but that’s par for the course – Monday we process the bulge of listings taken on the weekend, so a low sell/list is predictable. Trends need time. Still, we’re building inventory pretty quickly.

How to read these tables:

The first column is date, which is self-explanatory. The second is the number of sales in the specific area. Sales include detached, attached, apartment, land only and multi-family. Multi-family tends to include smaller multi-unit buildings rather than apartment buildings, which usually turn up on the commercial MLS system. There are also few multi-family sales each week. The third column is average list price for the day – in other words, the total of all list prices divided by the number of new listings. The fourth column is the average sales price of all sales reported that day. the sales are reported after subjects are removed, and can be from 0 to perhaps 14 days old. Listings, by comparison, are generally brand new, and lag by at most 3-5 days (in times of high listing volume the lag can be a little more, but not as much as with sales).

The fifth and sixth columns show the difference between average list price and sell price in dollar figures and percentages. Hot markets see properties sell within 1%-1.5% of list price.

The last column is days on market (DOMs). In most real estate markets 60 DOMs is by no means bad, and would often be regarded as great. In the Lower Mainland, especially compared to the last decade, it is high. Hot markets see DOMs like 30.
