Increased Interest in Tondos and Townhomes

“September’s statistics clearly demonstrate that Victoria continues to have a stable real estate sector and is a desirable place to live,” says Victoria Real Estate Board President Cheryl Woolley. “While sales are up compared to the same month last year, our inventory remains low, which may create challenges for people trying to get into the market in certain categories.”

“We saw increased activity in the condo and townhouse market with an almost 50 per cent year-over-year sales increase in condos,” adds President Woolley. “It may be too early to call this a trend towards condo purchases, but this is a number to watch through the fall to see if buyers continue opting for condos and townhomes as more new developments are added to the market in highly desirable locations, with price points often lower than a single family home.”
