It seems impossible that summer is coming to an end even though we've enjoyed many beautiful sunny days on the lake, on the road, and in the sky! We've appreciated being able to be back among friends, family and festival-goers.

Like back to school, it's time to look back at the real estate market and assess what's going on. Sales are taking a bit longer and buyers are taking more time to make decisions and arrange financing if needed which can be a bit difficult as interest rates increase. Of course, things are different in each community.

This newsletter includes some North Okanagan stats, my listings, the latest real estate news and a handy guide for buyers! If you're interested in what's happening in your community, give me a call. Not every community is the same and a market analysis for your property in today's market can help you decide if now is the right time to sell or buy. I am on weekly calls with realtors across the province, so I often get early insights into what's happening in other markets too.

As always, please call or text me at 250-307-7553 if I can be of assistance in buying property or listing your property for sale.

Okanagan Stats for August 2022
Residential real estate sales for the month of August in the region are showing signs of returning to stronger market activity, reports the Association of Interior REALTORS® (the Association).

A total of 1,205 residential unit sales were recorded across the Association region last month, an increase from 1,196 recorded in July 2022, but 32.6% below the number of units sold during the frenzied market of August 2021.

“After the unpredictable hot market through the majority of last year, it is nice to see some typical seasonal consumer behaviour returning as we head into this Fall,” says the Association of Interior REALTORS® President Lyndi Cruickshank, adding “this is a welcomed optimistic sign for a potential return of a balanced market to come, sooner than anticipated.”
