Scott Olson, President of the Board says “To put it in perspective, in the last decade , April 2012 ranked second lowest for sales during that month, while new listings came in at the third highest, meaning it is a good time to be shopping for a home in the Fraser Valley because selection has only been this extensive twice.”
