Victoria real estate market needs better mix of housing supply to help restore balance

September 1, 2023  A total of 544 properties sold in the Victoria Real Estate Board region this August, 13.8 per cent more than the 478 properties sold in August 2022 and an 8.6 per cent decrease from July 2023. Sales of condominiums were up 10.8 per cent from August 2022 with 164 units sold. Sales of single family homes increased 9.6 per cent from August 2022 with 273 sold.

“Real estate activity this month reflected what we’d expect to see in an average late summer housing market,” said Victoria Real Estate Board Chair Graden Sol. “The beginning of the month was reasonably slow, and sales ramped up through the last half of the month. The brisk sales pace leading up to the end of August may very well continue into September.”

As the leaves start to turn, it’s time to get your yard ready for fall. Here are 4 essential tips:

  1. Rake and Remove Leaves: Keep your lawn healthy by raking and removing fallen leaves. This prevents suffocation and promotes grass growth.
  2. Trim and Prune: Give your shrubs and trees a tidy look by trimming and pruning any dead or overgrown branches. This ensures healthy growth come spring.
  3. Lawn Care: Continue mowing your lawn until it stops growing. Apply a fall fertilizer to strengthen the roots and help your lawn survive the winter.
  4. Plant Fall Bulbs: Add a pop of color to your yard next spring by planting fall bulbs like tulips and daffodils now.

A little yard work now sets the stage for a vibrant and healthy landscape next year.
