Okanagan & Shuswap Real Estate Statistics – Nov/Dec. 2016

Published: December 21, 2016

happy-holidays-from-priscilla-companySeason’s Greetings to you! At this time of year we like to pause in our busy schedules to send a heart-felt ‘thank you!’ to the amazing people we meet and have the privilege to work with every day.

2016 was a lively year for the Okanagan and Shuswap real estate markets. Sales activity during November and December remained well above the same time-frame last year, but we are feeling a steady return to more ‘normal’ levels. As always, the market is fluid, but most experts forecast the market will continue to normalize into the New Year. 2016 was unpredictable, a little stability sounds good!

If you would like to read a quick summary of the federal and provincial government policies changing the industry check out our November 9, 2016 blog ‘Our Unbalanced Fall Real Estate Market’.

Our office is still busy with Buyers. We think it will be steady right through Christmas. Our RE/MAX office on Silver Star is open and the snow is falling. Simply gorgeous! Even if you don’t ski, Silver Star has so much to offer and it’s a great way to get into the festive Season. Tube Town is great fun for all ages! Or, simply bundle up, take a walk through Village and have a hot bevy at the newly remodeled Red Antler. Just be sure to pop by our office to say hello.
