May 2024 Victoria Real Estate Market Stats

More time and choice in the Victoria real estate market

A total of 763 properties were sold in the Victoria Real Estate Board region this May, 1.5 percent fewer than the 775 properties sold in May 2023 and a 12.5 percent increase from April 2024. Sales of condominiums were down 5.2 percent from May 2023, with 235 units sold. Sales of single-family homes exactly matched the number from May 2023, with 399 sold.

“Spring is generally prime time for real estate in Victoria,” said 2024 Victoria Real Estate Board Chair Laurie Lidstone. “And May is typically when we are at or near to the peak of activity in our property market. This May was another stable month for both buyers and sellers. With more inventory on the market, consumers had more choices and could take time to make decisions and complete their due diligence. The additional listings also meant less pressure on pricing, so prices remained relatively flat.”

There were 3,338 active listings for sale on the Victoria Real Estate Board Multiple Listing Service® at the end of May 2024, an increase of 10.6 percent compared to the previous month of April and a 52.5 percent increase from the 2,189 active listings for sale at the end of May 2023.

“After so many years of consumers navigating an unbalanced market, it is positive for buyers and sellers to see some months of consistent balance,” adds Chair Lidstone. “A lot of folks who have been watching the market over recent years may find that now is a good time to sell and buy as market conditions have changed for the better. Of course, as always, I recommend connecting with your favourite REALTOR® to create a strategy specific to your needs.”
