According to REBGV and BCREA:
Real estate sales follow seasonal patterns. The houses sell well in the spring. Then, the market slows down in the summer, as buyers and sellers usually go on vacation. Activity increases in autumn, the second busiest time of year after spring. Things calm down in the winter. The 2020 market looks a little different due to COVID-19.
Like many other sectors of the B.C. economy suffer, the residential real estate market continues to recover from its fall in COVID-19.
Canadian home sales hit a record high in July as home buyers cleared the roadblocks.
