Market Update for the first quarter:

Victoria real estate professionals were busy this first quarter as market demand pushed Victoria homes sales up from the previous year.  The first quarter average home prices were up a robust 16 percent from the same period in 2009, reaching a first quarter average selling price of $633,150. (in Victoria not Oak Bay) "There has also been a significant volume of sales in the first quarter, with over 1,800 property transactions taking place, which is a significant increase over the 1,252 properties sold during the same period last year," notes Carol Guertz, president of Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty.  There were 954 single-family homes, 499 condominiums and 215 townhomes sold this first quarter.  In the last two weeks REALTORS® have noticed a shift in the market.  A large listing inventory now and an increase in mortgage rates have slowed the pace down and we are now seeing alot of price adjustments in this second quarter.
