Housing Supply Not Keeping Pace with Demand in Most BC Regions
Vancouver, BC – June 13, 2017. The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) reports that a total of 12,402 residential unit sales were recorded by the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in May, down 7.9 per cent from the same period last year. Total sales dollar volume was $9.33 billion, down 4.0 per cent from May 2017. The average MLS® residential price in the province was $752,536, a 4.2 per cent increase from the same period last year.
“Market conditions have tightened considerably this spring as an upturn in consumer demand has not been accompanied by a rise in homes listed for sale," said Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief Economist. "The supply of homes for sale in the province has fallen 50 per cent over the past five years."
"The entire southern portion of the province is experiencing a shortage of housing supply, which makes continuing upward pressure on home prices inevitable, at least in the near term," added Muir. Total active listings in the province were down 11.1 per cent to 28,404 units from May 2016. The ratio of home sales to active listings was well over 20 per cent in nine of the province's 11 real estate boards, and over 50 per cent in Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, Chilliwack and Victoria.
Year-to-date, BC residential sales dollar volume was down 25.2 per cent to $30.6 billion, when compared with the same period in 2016. Residential unit sales declined 20.1 per cent to 43,158 units, while the average MLSÂ® residential price was down 5.7 per cent to $709,541.

Hopefully from this you will see a consistency in professional ethics and dedication to my chosen profession that will earn your trust., confidence and proven honesty and customer satisfaction.
Above and Beyond! Audrey lived next door to me. She would take my border collie (Cherry) for walks and even kept dog treats in her hall closet. I asked Audrey to be my realtor when I decided to sell my place. My place was listed and sold (for a great price) within a month. I also asked Audrey to help me find a new home. Audrey sent me emails of listings daily that fit my needs and price range (even while she was on vacation). She helped me navigate the competitive world of buying homes. My movers did not show up on moving day. I told Audrey so that she could let the buyers know that I was running a bit late. The buyers arrived early. Audrey helped me move my belongings both out of my old home and into my new home. It was a very hot and stressful Friday. I have recommended Audrey to my family and friends and would absolutely use her again. Thank you Audrey Crystal from Abbotsford
Nicholas from Chilliwack says;
“Audrey delivered exceptional service with my recent home purchase. As my regular Realtor was away, I was referred to Audrey who took the ball and ran with it seeing me through from the beginning to the end, always keeping me in the loop of happenings as they materialized. In a competitive real estate market that regularly sees home prices sell well above the listed price, Audrey was able to secure the property I was after at the asking price, saving me thousands of dollars Thank you Audrey, for making my experience so amazing.”
Angel & Kevin from Abbotsford write;
We're the kind of people I imagine real estate agents dread. Specific boxes to tick off, not a lot of compromise. We're the kind of people that fall in love with one house per year. We contacted Audrey in February to help us purchase a house that met all of our needs. Although on vacation, she immediately got us in contact with one of her capable coworkers to put in an offer. Being that this was the first time we would be selling a home, we were a little nervous and anxious about the whole process. We'd lived in our current home for almost 18 years so we were a little out of practice in purchasing as well.
Upon Audrey's return from vacation she immediately set to work on helping us list our home. Within 24 hours of the sellers accepting our offer, Audrey had a for sale sign on our lawn. Five days later after a choreography of showings, we accepted an offer $41,000 over asking. Not only is Audrey a sophisticated professional but she takes the time to understand what her clients needs to navigate through the process. She was always available for any question we threw at her and gave us all of the emotional support we so desperately needed.
Audrey is always honest and realistic. She doesn't give false hope or tell you what you WANT to hear to make a sale. She makes you feel appreciated and goes the extra mile. If you're looking to turn your dreams into reality, Audrey is the agent to call.
Glen from Williams Lake writes;
I called Audrey and told her what I was hoping to find. She listened and shortly after I was sent several listings. Audrey is highly organized and she knows how to use the tools of her trade i.e. Authentisign which as an out of town buyer made things easy. When I arrived in town Audrey had 5 condos to show me that day. Audrey masterfully negotiated a very satisfactory deal on my condo, which I found that weekend. “5-star service". It felt like I had her help exclusively. Audrey has a quick with, a pleasant experience, couldn't be happier with my new condo!!! Did I mention I'm satisfied!!! Thanks Audrey & Century 21 Coastal Realty I wouldn't hesitate to use you again.
Ken & Sylvia from Coquitlam write;
Dear Audrey, Thank you for all the time and effort that you spent helping us find that ‘perfect home’! You made it your goal to help us find what we were looking for. Constantly e-mailing potential properties that you felt matched our ‘new home search’ (no matter how many times we made changes to our preferences and location). You reassured us that it is a ‘ Process' and did not show any frustration or impatience with us. Always going out of your way to make sure we had all the information, setting up appointments on short notice. You were extremely patient, friendly and willing to help us in any way possible. You were very thorough and professional, punctual at appointments and kept us informed every step of the way! You helped us get through the process as smoothly as possible! We would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a new home! Thanks again for all your hard work, Audrey! It’s been a pleasure working with you and getting to know you too! With much Gratitude, Best Regards, Sylvia & Ken
Tony from Bejing China writes;
Thank you for the hard work you have done in buying my home. Actually I'm really impressed by your experience and confidence throughout the whole process. You showed your capable and knowledgeable traits as an excellent property realtor. Particularly, you were incredibly attentive to all of my concerns and provided all of the support I needed. I definitely think that anyone will not be disappointed if he or she chooses you as his/her realtor. Thank you once again.Best wishes,Tony
Betty & Leo from Aldergrove writes;
We would like to thank you for all your help and expertise in selling our home. Your professionalism and knowledge was very much appreciated. It definitely made the process less stressful. Audrey was a pleasure to work with. We found her patience, honesty and sense of humour refreshing. She stayed in constant contact with us and gave us timely feedbacks. Her knowledge of the present market expedited the sale of our home to our satisfaction. We would not hesitate to refer Audrey Perron to any of our relatives, friends or neighbors. We have come to accept her not only as a hard working and dedicated realtor but also as a friend. Thank you so much Audrey, Betty and Leo
Rodrigo & Karla Brookfield/IRP transferees;
My wife and I were moving from another province looking to buy our very first house. Audrey was strongly suggested by another satisfied client of hers who had gone through the CF relocation process no long ago. It was the BEST tip we could ever had. From the very first day, She took special care of us from A to Z and often going beyond her responsibilities just to help us out. Audrey made us feel welcome at all times, like if a long time friend was showing us house after house. She allowed us to take our own decisions but always guiding us with her professionalism and experience. Even after moving into our new place, Audrey is still making sure we are doing fine. We can't thank her enough for all her help. We would strongly encourage anyone who is thinking to buy or sell a house to look no more; Mrs. Perron will be the best help you can ever get. Thank you Rodrigo and Karla
Jeff and Merna moved to Princeton BC;
We would like to thank Audrey Perron for the excellent work she did on selling our home in Abbotsford BC. Audrey made us feel more comfortable about the entire ordeal by explaining to us what to expect in the days to come , what to do as far as getting everything in the home ready to show the prospective buyers and giving us an up to date and very thorough market analysis explaining the pricing of our home compared to the other homes on the market similar to our own. She was warm and caring , and very professional in handling the entire sale. We of course where not quite expecting the home to sell so quickly but it was sold in less than two weeks from the day she put it on the market.
Thanks Audrey , we know who to call if we ever decide to do it again . Yours Sincerely Merna and Jeff
My background has been to provide 40 years of customer service to clients. I have always believed in a win-win concept and strive to communicate to my clients and listen carefully to their ideas and concerns.
One of the questions I would certainly ask of a Realtor is if this is their lively hood and sole profession. You want to make sure your Realtor is full time and dedicated to their chosen profession.
I have achieved many Century 21 masters awards and have also been a Fraser Valley Medallion award winner.
My specialty has always been working diligently to find the right home for my clients. I work well with all spectrum's from the first time buyer to the experienced home owner.
I also belong to the Century 21 Global Referral Network - specializing in working with clients from out of town who may require special time and attention due to short time constraints in allowing them to find the right home.
Acting as your quarterback to make sure everything is done in a timely manner and providing the client with open communication making sure they are involved and informed of the entire process.

I was born and raised in Vancouver B.C. In 1988 I moved to the Fraser Valley for job opportunities and to get away from city life. Very soon after I began my career in Real Estate with Century 21 and continue working with a great company. I have lived in the Fraser Valley area for 29 years and love it here. I don't miss the city life at all but it's nice to know we are close enough to visit but far away enough to enjoy the peace and quiet and no traffic jams.
On my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband Marco. Our passion is golfing and like most golfers we are always trying to improve our game :) Vacationing is another enjoyable past time, pretty much anywhere the sun is shining and the temperature is warm and I'm in...When I'm home my personal interests are working on staying fit and healthy and good times with great friends and family.
