February in Real Estate

February in Real Estate


Another month went by and we are seeing more listings coming on the market every day. How was February you may ask? Well, here’s a brief summary of each important market. The reason why I am including only these markets is because based on what algorithms show, most people that come to Campbell River and surrounding area, are from these cities across Canada.

Campbell River

February brought additional inventory to the table in the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB) area. However, listings are still far below where they need to be to satisfy buyer demand.

“British Columbia is in the midst of a housing crisis,” says Erica Kavanaugh, 2022 VIREB President. “Organized real estate has data-driven insights into potential solutions, which is why BCREA just released a white paper on market conditions in the province.”

In a Better Way Home: Strengthening Consumer Protection in Real Estate, BCREA presents over 30 recommendations to the provincial government on how it can protect consumers today and provide affordable housing in the future. Using extensive data and expert analysis, BCREA focuses on real-life solutions in the paper instead of ineffective and temporary demand-side fixes, adds Kavanaugh.

Thanks to a surge in new listings, sales activity reached a record high for the month of February with 3,305 sales. The rise in new listings caused adjusted inventories to rise above last months’ levels. However, with only one month of supply, the market continues to favour the seller.

The benchmark price of detached homes in the city of Calgary hit $596,400; semi-detached: $461,400; row home: $321,100; apartments: $257,500.


The Metro Vancouver* housing market saw steady home sales activity, modest increases in home listings and continued upward trends in pricing in February.

“As we prepare to enter what’s traditionally the busiest season of the year, the Metro Vancouver housing market is seeing more historically typical home sale activity and a modest uptick in home listing activity compared to last year,” Taylor Biggar, REBGV Chair said. 

The benchmark price for a detached home is $2.044,800. This represents a 25 per cent increase from February 2021.

The benchmark price of an apartment home is $807,900. This represents a 15.9 per cent increase from February 2021.

The benchmark price of an attached home is $1,090,000. This represents a 27.2 per cent increase from February 2021. 


February home sales were down compared to the all-time record in 2021, but represented the second-best result for the month of February in history. New listings dropped, but by a marginally lesser annual rate than sales, pointing to a modest move to a slightly more balanced market. Competition between buyers, however, remained tight enough to support double-digit price growth year-over-year.

“Demand for ownership housing remains strong throughout the GTA, and while we are marginally off the record pace seen last year, any buyer looking in this market is not likely to feel it with competition remaining the norm. Many households sped up their home purchase and entered into a transaction in 2021, which is one reason the number of sales were forecasted to be lower this year and a trending towards higher borrowing cost will have a moderating effect on home sales. Substantial immigration levels and a continued lack of supply, however, will have a countering effect to increasing mortgage costs,” said TRREB President Kevin Crigger.

The average price for a detached home in area (416) is $2,073,989.

The average price of a semi-detached home (416) is $1,499,489.

The average price of a townhouse (416) is $1,131,809.

The average price of a condo (416) is $822,090 as reported by the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TREBB).

If you keep tracking these numbers like I do, you must have noticed that prices keep going up significantly all across the country. Even when you look at a monthly change a lot of the times it’s substantially higher. With immigration policy accepting over 400,000 new immigrants this year, and now with Ukraine conflict I’m sure that number will at least double. We can only speculate that this will drive prices even higher, especially the lower priced units.
