In this post, we’re going to take a close look at key numbers for the Abbotsford condominium market for May 2021 – including sales, new listings, active listings, as well as benchmark, median and average prices for condominiums for sale in Abbotsford.
We're also going to see what kind of shape the condominium market in Abbotsford was in for the month – whether it was a buyer's market, a balanced market, or a seller's market.
Demand hasn't changed. What's changed is supply. In the last three months, buyers have 40 per cent more inventory to look at in the Fraser Valley and it's allowed them to take back a little control. We're seeing resistance to multiple offers and buyers adjusting their offers, or even waiting, because they have more selection. We're a long way from a balanced market, but supply is helping us to head in the right direction.Larry Anderson
