• VANCOUVER – The British Columbia Real Estate Association says tighter mortgage rules and lower demand are bringing the provincial housing market into balance.

    The association says 7,884 units were sold within the Multiple Listing Service across the province in June, a 32.5 per cent decrease from the same month last year.

    The average residential price was down 1.3 per cent from June of 2017 for a total sales value of $5.6 billion.

    ¬†Brendon Ogmundson, the association’s deputy chief economist, says the impact of the tightened standards for both borrowers and lenders is still being felt.
