Market Analysis:
Andrew Lis, REBGV director of economics and data analytics, notes that despite reduced transaction volumes, inventory levels are healthy, providing buyers with more selection. The possibility of an interest rate cut by the Bank of Canada this summer could further tilt the market in favor of buyers. Well-priced properties are still selling quickly, indicating that opportunities exist for astute buyers.
