There are three classifications experts use to describe the balance of supply and demand in the housing market.  Over a sustained period of time, a seller's market is represented by a ratio of 20% or higher, a buyer's market is represented by a ratio of 11% or lower and a balanced market rests between 12-19%.

SAR for all North Vancouver and West Vancouver property types has been trending lower month after month YTD as inventory has been increasing and sales lessening.
