The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board recently published the MLS® statistics for the Abbotsford real estate market, among others, for December 2022.
In this post, we’re going to take a close look at key numbers for the Abbotsford detached home market for December 2022 – including sales, new listings, active listings, as well as benchmark, median and average prices for detached homes for sale in Abbotsford.
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.
As the market has adjusted to rate hikes, we're starting to see a resumption of interest among the public. For some time, buyers and sellers alike have delayed decisions in somewhat of a watch-and-wait mode. This has dampened sales as well as supply since fewer new listings come onto the market. We expect activity to pick up in the coming months as this pent up supply and demand starts to emerge.Sandra Benz
