Newsletter October 2010


It seems that as we start the month of October, I am more inclined to rave about the gorgeous warm, sunny weather we have had over the last few days rather than the latest Real Estate Stats for the Central Okanagan!!

Sadly, as you can see from the latest figures, real estate sales have again taken a downturn.

The encouraging thing is that we have seen more single family home sales, and it has been condo sales that have taken the biggest hit.

Interestingly the average residential sale is currently $466,000 which is only 0.27% below the average last year. Whereas the average Condo price has fallen 9% to $235,000 and the average Town home price has fallen 4% to $341,000.

On the Inventory side there are currently 1666 Residential homes for sale -up 5%, Condos are down 12% to 988 and Town homes are down 0.4% to 493. I believe this reflects the number of condo owners who decided to rent their units this fall.

Summary

It remains a great time to Buy, particularly with interest rates remain lower.
