Interior Housing Markets to Shine in 2012
Vancouver, BC – June 6, 2012. The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) released its 2012 Second Quarter Housing Forecast today.
BC Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) residential sales are forecast to edge down 2.2 per cent to 74,800 units this year, before increasing 4.9 per cent to 78,500 units in 2013. Since 2009, annual home sales in the province have hovered in the 74,000 to 78,000 unit range. A record 106,300 MLS® residential sales were recorded in 2005.
"Despite a sizable increase in consumer demand in Kamloops, the Okanagan and the North, some moderation in the Metro Vancouver region will pull BC home sales lower this year,” said Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief Economist. “Persistently low mortgage interest rates are expected to continue to underpin home sales and affordability in the province."
"An increase in the proportion of home sales in the Interior combined with fewer luxury sales in Vancouver will cause the annual average price in BC to decline nearly 4 per cent this year,” added Muir. The average MLS® residential price in the province is forecast to dip 3.9 per cent to $539,400 this year, and increase 1.4 per cent to $547,000 in 2013.

Bank of Canada Interest Rate Hold - June 5 / 2012
Bank of Canada Interest Rate Decision - June 5, 2012
No surprises from the Bank of Canada’s interest rate decision this morning. The Bank opted to keep its overnight rate at 1 per cent, where it has been for nearly two years. The statement released in support of the interest rate decision noted that, in the Bank’s judgement, Canadian economic growth and inflation are unfolding largely as anticipated. A wave of risk aversion due to heightened anxiety over the Euro-crisis has sent Canadian bond-yields plummeting and market expectations for Bank of Canada rate increases have sharply reversed course. However, in today’s statement the Bank once again signaled to markets its preference for higher interest rates over the medium term and its intention to modestly withdraw stimulus as slack in the Canadian economy is absorbed.
