Vancouver, BC – September 14, 2017. TheBritish Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) reports that a total of 9,162 residential unit sales were recorded by the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in August, an increase of 2.4 per cent from the same period last year. Total sales dollar volume was $6.2 billion, up 22 per cent from August 2016. The average MLS® residential price in the province was $678,186, a 19.1 per cent increase from August 2016.


“BC home sales in August remained unchanged from July, on a seasonally adjusted basis," said Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief Economist. "Strong economic conditions are underpinning demand. However, rising home prices combined with upward pressure on mortgage interest rates is expected to temper demand over the balance of the year."


Year-to-date, BC residential sales dollar volume was down 15.9 per cent to $51.8 billion, when compared with the same period in 2016. Residential unit sales declined 15.0 per cent to 73,267 units, while the average MLS® residential price was down 1.1 per cent to $706,839.

Canadian Building Permits - September 7, 2017 - BCREA


The total value of Canadian building permits fell 3.5 per cent on a monthly basis in July, the first decrease since March 2017.  The decrease was largely the result of lower construction intentions in Ontario, though several provinces saw declines. 

The total value of permits issued in BC increased 4.6 per cent on a monthly basis and were up 35.4 per cent year-over-year, exceeding $1.3 billion for a second consecutive month. Residential permits rose 7.8 per cent on a monthly basis and were 52.6 per cent higher year-over year. That growth was led by a record $771.8 million in permits for multi-family dwellings. Non-residential permits declined 6.1 per cent on a monthly basis and were 5.6 per cent lower year-over-year.

Construction intentions were higher in three of BC's four census metropolitan areas (CMA):

  • Permits in the Abbotsford-Mission CMA  fell 17.4 per cent on a monthly basis to just over $30 million. Year-over-year, permit values were more than double the value of July 2016.
  • In the Victoria CMA, total construction intentions totaled $138.9 million, an 8.2 per cent monthly increase and a 48 per cent increase in permit values from one year ago.
  • In the Kelowna CMA, permits were 1.8 per cent higher a monthly basis and close to 5 per cent higher compared to July 2016 at $71 million.
  • In the Vancouver CMA, a record value of multi-family dwelling permits pushed the total value of all permit activity to $858.6 million, an increase of 8.2 per cent on a monthly basis and a 48 per cent increase year-over-year.

Sept 6, 2017 


The Bank of Canada announced this morning that it is raising its target for the overnight rate by 25 basis points to 1 per cent. In the press release accompanying the decision, the Bank noted that recent economic data have been stronger than expected but growth is forecast to moderate in the second half of the year.  On inflation, the Bank cited some excess capacity and temporary price shocks as factors keeping inflation below its 2 per cent target. Importantly, the Bank mentioned it will be paying particular attention to the evolution of the economy's potential growth rate (meaning the economy's estimated long-run growth rate) as well as to labour market conditions and the economy's sensitivity to higher interest rates.

The Bank has now removed the stimulus it injected into the Canadian economy in 2015 to offset the impact of falling oil prices. With the economy expanding at a 3.5 per cent rate over the past year, that stimulus is clearly no longer required. The Bank seems to be more concerned about the potential for higher future inflation due to an over-heated economy than on the actual very low inflation observed in recent months. That leaves the door open for further rate increases should economic growth remain robust.
