Looking for UBCO Accomodation to rent or Buy?

After what has felt like a slow start to people looking for accommodation ready for UBCO this fall, I am now starting to see a steady stream of students and their parents visiting our Quail Ridge Office in search of condos ready for the start of the school year.

Whilst I do not hold a licence to rent out properties, only to sell them, it has come to my attention that their is a brand new web site available for people looking to rent properties for this purpose.

The web site is - http://www.kelownastudentrentals.com/. So do check this out.

If you are looking to buy either a one or two bedroom condo before the start of the school year, you are now at the optimum time to do so, as once you have your financing in place, you should just be able to organise closing before the end of August.

As I have done a great deal of these types of sales over the last few years, please feel free to give me a call if you require any assistance.

Kind Regards

July 2010 Newsletter

What is happening in Kelowna Real Estate?

People seem to remain ‘on the fence’ as to whether to purchase new real estate this year, as they continue to ask the question—will prices fall further?

Economic forecasters are predicting that if Governments don’t get the right balance between consumption, investments, government spending and imports -(GDP) , some countries may go back in to recession, which will really put a damper on things.

It is certainly keeping Real Estate prices down in the U.S, and there is plenty of evidence that people continue to make their buying choices south of the border, whereas normally they would be choosing the Okanagan.

June 2010 Central Okanagan Real Estate Stats


Type      Total     S. Fam     Strata     Lot     Manuf

Jun 10     343       207           97         18        21

May10    384       209         134         19        22

Apr 10    391       217         128         28        18

Jun 09     429       379         147         13        17



June got off to a weak start, following on from a slower May. The weather didn’t help, and it was only towards the end of the month that we started to see more evidence of out of town buyers visiting, both on line and in person.

These results are very disappointing, even against 2009 figures, when we were just starting to see a slow down.

We have now had our first 30 degree days, so hopefully that will be the springboard we need to an improved spell of buying.

There is plenty of product to chose from, and I think the Buyers will continue to find some great value this year.

Kind Regards
