The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board recently published the MLS® statistics for the Mission real estate market, among others, for October 2023.
In this post, we’re going to take a close look at key numbers for the Mission townhouse market for October 2023 – including sales, new listings, active listings, as well as benchmark, median and average prices for townhouses for sale in Mission.
We're also going to see what kind of shape the townhouse market in Mission was in for the month – whether it was a buyer's market, a balanced market, or a seller's market.
What we're seeing in the Fraser Valley and indeed across the province is the impact of sustained high interest rates on the overall market. This has been the case since the latter half of the year so far, and we anticipate the trend will continue until we start to see some downward movement in the policy rate.Narinder Bains
