News From the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board – April 2021 Edition

APRIL 1, 2021


NANAIMO, BC – Lack of inventory is frustrating potential buyers in the VIREB area, with demand for homes far exceeding supply.

While active listings in March were higher than in February, inventory is still at a historical low. There were
508 single-family detached properties for sale last month compared to 394 in February, an increase of 29 per cent. The number of condo apartments for sale rose slightly, up to 171 from 169 in February. Month-over-month townhouse inventory increased by 29 per cent, with 117 units for sale in March compared to 91 in February.

March saw sales of 567 single-family detached properties, a year-over-year increase of 67 per cent. As for condo apartments, 136 sold last month versus 47 the previous year, an increase of 189 per cent. In the row/ townhouse category, sales increased by 53 per cent year over year (81 to 124).

Although lack of inventory is a problem throughout British Columbia, it has reached a crisis point on Vancouver Island, says 2021 VIREB president Ian Mackay.

“Demand-side policies like taxes and higher mortgage rates have done little to remedy our inventory issue, which is a decade-old problem,” says Mackay. “Vancouver Island has always been popular with retirees, but COVID-19 and the option of remote work are now attracting younger buyers. Competition is fierce, and we don’t see that abating any time soon.”

The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) does not see the inventory situation improving
until more supply comes online later in the year. BCREA and local real estate boards are advocating with policymakers at the provincial and regional levels to speed up the development process so that municipalities can expand supply more quickly to meet demand.

“It’s painfully clear that attempts to dampen demand have not moderated home prices, so the best route to making housing more affordable, particularly for first-time buyers, is to increase supply,” says Mackay. “It’s not a quick solution, but it’s the only one that makes sense long-term. And, to do that, we need all levels of government working together.”

Unsurprisingly, the heated housing market is impacting prices, which are rising throughout the board area. The benchmark price of a single-family home hit $631,500 last month, 18 per cent higher than in March 2020. The benchmark price of an apartment reached $332,400, an increase of nine per cent, while the benchmark price of a townhouse rose by 19 per cent year over year, climbing to $487,100.

In Campbell River, the benchmark price of a single-family home hit $564,000 in March, an increase of 22 per cent over last year. In the Comox Valley, the benchmark price was $656,400, up by 19 per cent from one year ago. Duncan reported a benchmark price of $578,500, an increase of 15 per cent from March 2020. Nanaimo’s benchmark price rose by 18 per cent, hitting $645,600, while the Parksville-Qualicum area saw its benchmark price increase by 13 per cent to $714,500. The cost of a benchmark single-family home in Port Alberni reached $407,200, a 19 per cent year-over-year increase. For the North Island, the benchmark price rose to $302,100, a 15 per cent increase over last year.
