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
