Statistics always tell interesting stories and true to form the latest VIREB monthly stats offer up a few numerical tidbits. For example during the month of March 1,734 listings of all sorts were placed on the MLS® system, with 773 of them being Residential Properties. This figure is down 14% from the same time last year when 2,014 total listings were added to the system. Specific properties bucked this downward trend however. 20% more Single Family (Strata) properties were added to the system last month, while 21% more Half Duplexes were added when compared to March 2012. A total of 131 Lots were added to the MLS® system in March, an increase of 47% over the same month last year when 89 Lots were added. As of March 31 there were a grand total of 8,252 listings of all sorts on the VIREB MLS® system, down from last year’s total of 8,504.
