The market is better balanced than the first three months of 2021, but we still have a long way to go.
Canadian Real Estate Better Balanced Than A Few Months Ago
The market is still extremely tight, but a little pressure is starting to release.
The sales to new listings ratio (SNLR) fell to 72.63% in March, falling closer to balanced. Inventory is still tight compared to home sales, but it’s almost half the record high of 118.53% hit in December. It may not seem that way due to the headlines on home sales, but this is a much more relaxed market.
Home sales are rising primarily due to pent-up and pulled-forward demand.
The pent-up demand is due to restrictions on home sales pushed some buyers into later months. The pulled-forward demand breaks down into two segments.
The first is people motivated to take advantage of record low mortgage rates, and accelerating their buy. The second is people that are being driven by FOMO, and feel they need to buy ASAP, before they’re priced out of the market forever. Both of these trends happening at the same time is a once-in-a-lifetime situation.
