We're also going to see what kind of shape the detached home market in Abbotsford was in for the month – whether it was a buyer's market, a balanced market, or a seller's market.

We would typically see a flurry of activity around this time of the year. However that’s not been the case so far. While it's still too early to say whether this trend will endure, the slowing of sales combined with an increase in active listings is helping to restore a semblance of balance to the market, which is encouraging for homebuyers.
