Vancouver's housing market has, according to the local real estate board, entered a "new cycle marked by quieter home buyer demand."

In its monthly report, the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver said it's seeing a slower demand, coupled with a gradual rising in supply.

Compared to what is typically seen in July in the region, the number of sales is down 35.2 per cent, the board said.
