April smashes BC home sales record

April was another record-breaking month for home sales in British Columbia. There were 12,969 sales through the MLS of BCREA last month, beating March’s 12,560; and up 30.3 per cent from April 2015.

"Housing demand is exceptionally strong across the southern regions of the province," said Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief Economist. "Consumers appear to be particularly active in the Vancouver Island, the Fraser Valley and the Thompson/Okanagan regions."

The average MLS price was up 17.2 per cent year-over-year to $743,640 and the total value of all home sales surged 52.7 per cent to $9.64 billion.
