June 2021 North Okanagan Real Estate Update

May 2021 North Okanagan Real Estate Update



"There is a slight reduction in pressure that is creating a calming effect for a healthier market for both buyers and sellers. We are seeing and easing up on the gas pedal that has been going above the speed limit, to now moving within a reasonable pace. While the market may be slowing down from an all-time record, it does not mean the market has softened, it means the buyer frenzy has calmed down slightly"

April 2021 North Okanagan Real Estate Update



“We can’t look at the data as we normally would as this time last year we were in the thick of our first lockdown due to the pandemic. What we can look at is what is currently happening and currently supply is still not catching up to demand. We are in a supply drought when it comes to listings. Despite the supply drought the market remains strong and is starting to rationalize. With vaccine roll outs underway, once more and more people get vaccinated and we get some mobility and comfort back, hopefully we see more homes come on market.”

March 2021 North Okanagan Real Estate Update

February 2021 North Okanagan Real Estate Update



"We are seeing a noticeable increase on various types of recreation and vacation home sales suitable for all seasons. Due to COVID-related travel restrictions and limitations more and more inter-provincial buyers are taking the opportunity to create vacation opportunities within B.C.

December 2020 North Okanagan Real Estate Update



High demand drove the real estate market to finish the last month of 2020 on a high note.


"Last year was a very unusual year, after an initial slowdown due to stay-at-home orders from the provincial government we saw a high demand in the real estate market, once the orders were lifted that did not wane even in the typically slower months. Despite unusually high demand, inventory of active listings consistently remained low as buyers snapped up homes almost as soon as they were listed. Particularly in the family-sized homes category." 


Kim Heizmann OMREB President
