St. John's Real Estate Stats

The St. John’s Real Estate Market for the month of March (2014) showed little change from the previous month with regards to price changes.  We are seeing fair number of price reductions on properties. (a good thing)  Listings were down slightly this month so this could quite possibly be a little shift in the market.  With all the inventory out there we really need some of it to “dry up”.  There are lots of buyers looking and inquiring but many are sitting on the fence.  Expired listings are down from last month but still 23% of listings are expiring. The total number of sales for the year are down 7% unchanged from February. 

Personally I expect once all this snow disappears we will start to see a slight shift in the St. John’s real estate market.  I don’t expect records numbers, however I think we will get back to a more balance real estate market.

St. John's Housing Starts

Housing starts in the St. John’s Real Estate Market were trending at 1,587 units in March compared to 1,842 in February according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). The trend is a six month moving average of the monthly seasonally adjusted annual rates (SAAR)1 of housing starts.

“Residential construction activity in St. John’s trended lower in March,” said Chris Janes, Senior Market Analyst with CMHC’s Atlantic Business Centre. “The downward trend can be attributed to a slower rate of economic growth than has been seen in recent years and has impacted both single- detached and multiple starts in 2013,” added Janes.
