New Listings Bounce Higher in April

Published on May 16, 2024

Vancouver, BC – May 15, 2024. The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) reports that 7,569 residential unit sales were recorded in Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) systems in April 2024, an increase of 1.5 per cent from April 2023. The average MLS® residential price in BC in April 2024 was up 1.4 per cent at $1 million, compared to an average price of $992,440 in April 2023. The total sales dollar volume was $7.6 billion, an increase of 3 per cent from the same time the previous year.

“April was an above-average month for new listings activity, registering the highest pace since 2021,” said BCREA Chief Economist Brendon Ogmundson. “Sales are still slightly below normal, which has led to a substantial increase in total inventory, though at a level still far below long-run balance. Ultimately, the market is heading into the summer in a state of relative calm with much more choice for buyers.”

Year-to-date, BC residential sales dollar volume was up 9.5 per cent to $23.4 billion, compared with the same period in 2023. Residential unit sales were up 4.8 per cent to 23,507 units, while the average MLS® residential price was up 4.5 per cent to $997,132.
