How much have prices increased since 2020?



I stopped by Kalamalka Lake while viewing some homes in the area. It seems that summer is finally here weather-wise, hopefully, it continues



to get E Week in review. Sales are still trending below 100 sales a week and reductions are still happening every day.


Prices seem to be on the trend down after a couple years of strong rapid growth. Today the Bank of Canada announced another rate increase of 1% or 100 basis points that will likely help the continue the trend of softening of prices. That being said the good news is that there is a significant amount of value that is in the market place this year compared to where your homes value would have been a couple years ago. This week, I am looking at the average sale price per sub-area over the last 2 years and comparing today’s pricing with 2021 and also 2020. On average which you can find at the bottom of the chart but the Central Okanagan single-family homes are up 53% from the average home price sales in 2020 and still on average up 20% from 2021 prices. As you see on the second column on the right comparing 2022 with 2021 pricing, not every subarea has the same changes, some are down from 2021. A lot of people have significant equity in their homes, which is positive news, some people are pulling out some of that equity and putting it to buying rental properties or putting it into a renovation they have been putting off. Some people are choosing to move, but the one issue with that is where do you go? Consumer habits are changing right now we are seeing a trend of people actually cashing out now with the increased cost of living and moving to Alberta or Saskatchewan where they can save some money on taxes and housing while cashing out here. This could be a trend to continue to watch, just as the trend of people moving to the Okanagan. But looking back at the previous 2 years and comparing it to where we are at now we have seen some significant price changes. Take a look at the chart below and see how your area has changed in price over the last few years.

As you can see the average price increase in areas are significant, a lot of home owners are sitting on a lot of equity.
