The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board recently published the statistics for the Abbotsford real estate market, among others, for March 2018.

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


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

We continue to see demand capped-off due to an inadequate amount of supply. March is typically when we see our market kick into gear, but we need to see higher levels of new listings coming in and greater overall inventory if we want more homebuyers to find success in the Valley.
