The OMREB Reports:

"Already checked by higher interest rates, the market may react to predictions of more hikes, now more likely with the US Federal Reserve’s most recent rate increase and the Bank of Canada’s pledge that rates will rise in October. Government policy changes, such the proposed speculation tax slated to be voted on in October can also have a dampening effect. Conversely, the market is bolstered by strong provincial economic fundamentals such as low unemployment and demographics that include millennials ready to purchase their first home."

North Okanagan Real Estate Market Update December 2018

“Looking to 2019, we can expect that the market will continue to moderate, as compared to recent years, with all signs pointing to more balanced conditions where buyers and sellers are benefitted more equally. Demand is dampening as a result of government policies that erode affordability and purchasing power, yet these effects are continuing to be offset by relatively strong economic performance”

Marv Beer OMREB President

April 2018 North Okanagan and Shuswap Real Estate Update

Residential sales for the region of Peachland to Revelstoke tallied 746, 19% more than March, but 9% down from this time last year, reports the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board (OMREB).

“Markets are cyclical and what we hope for are smaller peaks and valleys, but it’s difficult to know if that’s what we will get, given the volume of tinkering occurring in the form of Federal mortgage tightening rules and higher interest rates and now a proposed Provincial speculation tax.” - OMREB President Marv Beer
