Top 7 Reason Why Now is A Good Time To Sell Your Home

If you have been thinking of selling in the next year, now might be the best time that you have. We don't know what the future has in store. 1. Low new inventory coming on the market, April is projected to have 540 new listings which is 46% of last April's amount and 56% of the new listings in March. There is less competition out there and it's a good time to get in front of prospective buyers. 2. Quarantine has people moving online. It's a good time to get more views on your home. 3. Spring is beautiful. Homes show great in spring with the blooming flowers and budding trees. Typically homes will sell faster and for money, if they show well. 4. Interest Rates are low. Nowhere to go but up.

Is It Different This Time? Recessions and the BC Housing Market

It is too early to know the full impact on the economy as the figures are pulled on an annual basis. However, looking at the chart above regarding the duration of the past recessions the prior recessions, have lasted anywhere from 8 to 25 months. This one is a bit different than any of the prior recessions as we all take part in physical distancing measures.

Whats happening in the Kelowna and West Kelowna Real Estate Market

WEEKLY THOUGHTS! The market is showing signs of softening this week, which was to be expected. Overall prior weeks it was chugging away quite decently. This week there was 67 solds vs 102 last week. The Inventory is lower than usual at this time of year with new homes coming on the market averaging about half of what typically in this spring rush we should see. That being said I had a new listing come out last week and we had an accepted offer first day on the market, if it’s the right product and there may be a buyer for it. I think its too early to see if we will see price drops. For prices to decrease there typically will have to be a imbalance of supply and demand. This week we are seein
