So, how much are homes selling in North Delta, BC?  

Each of the above price calculations has its limitations in terms of gaining insight about pricing a home. These numbers are best used as ballpark figures to gain a general understanding of the North Delta Real Estate market. The average home price in North Delta, December  2021, was $1,667,755  but there are many factors that come into play. For example the type of home sold and home features. Only  a realtor with experience in the area can best determine how much the property is worth. The best way to determine the home’s value is to find homes that have sold in your area with similar features to the one being priced. 

The best method to determine your home value is to find out what homes have recently sold in your neighbourhood that is similar to your home’s unique features (as mentioned above).  This is called a Home Evaluation or a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA).  As always, as your Top North Delta Real Estate Team, we can provide you with a FREE Home Evaluation and provide you with insight on recent homes sales that are similar to your home features and tips on how to increase the value of your property before putting it on MLS.

Last but not least, let’s take a quick look at the Supply and Demand in North Delta and how we determine if it’s a Sellers, Buyers or Balanced Market.  Demand is basically what sold in that month and supply is how many active listings there was that particular month.  This can help us determine where the market is currently sitting and possibly determine a trend in the North Delta Real Estate Market.

As you can see below, the last row shows October 2021’s demand and supply.  The inventory for homes in October reduced as compared to September, not because there are fewer listing homes but everything that is listed is going fast. The demand is still on the rise, making it yet another month of Seller’s Market. As we mentioned earlier we came to calculate a sales-to-active-listing-ratio of 81% (that is from 50 sales over 62 active listings).

North Delta Real Estate Trends

It was the seller’s advantage in 2021 due to the high demand created from low interest rates and people’s desire for a more spacious home. The impact of the pandemic on the real estate market was hard to predict in the beginning of the year but the Bank of Canada’s decision to lower interest rates allowed many to purchase a home in 2021. Inventory could not keep up with demand in North Delta, BC causing home prices to increase each month.

This month’s Final Thoughts:  

Interest rates are going to remain low in the beginning of the year this means that the market will continue to trend the way it has in 2021. According to the FVREB sales of detached homes increased by 31.8% in 2021 from 2020. The volume of new listings was not able to keep up with the demand causing home prices to drastically increase. The market may move towards a normal when the interest rates go up  but it will continue to be a seller’s market in North Delta, BC.
