Another week of below average new listing additions, which is doing wonders for the sales to list ratio since sales are still putting up solid numbers. This activity has also kept the absorption rate holding fast to 17 weeks, which is a stat that is usually considerably higher this time of year. Just look at the difference from this time last year to now, pretty impressive. Inventory continues to plummet, and buyers activity is showing no sign of slowing down either, so the expectation is that this activity will continue to push right up until the holiday season. Sale values continues to surprise as well, and reports remarkably above average from week to week of late. The six month median home prices, the real gauge of value increase/decline, is also reporting well above last years margins and is likely one of the most significant increases in such a short amount of time that Halifax has seen in a very long time. Days on market are fewer, prices changes less, and so too the listings that cancelled or expired. All signs that things are still favouring Sellers, so it makes you wonder when the turn will happen for Buyers. For now, though, we will wait out the current Sellers market in anticipation.
