In this post, we’re going to take a close look at key numbers for the Abbotsford detached home market for February 2018 – including sales, new listings, active listings, as well as benchmark, median and average prices for Abbotsford detached homes.


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.
