It’s another case of dwindling housing sales in the Lower Mainland, but major gains in the Interior, and on Vancouver Island.
That’s according to the BC Real Estate Association’s numbers for last October.
Last month, sales dollar volume was down $4.4 billion, or 24.2 per cent, when comparing those numbers to the numbers posted in October of 2015.
Sales were also down 16.7 per cent.
Despite that, the total dollar volume of sales across the province, when comparing year-to-date numbers from 2015 and 2016, is up 27.4 per cent to $70.4 billion.
The Association also notes the decline in the average residential price “reflects a smaller proportion of transactions in B.C. originating in Vancouver.”
