Local Residential Real Estate Market Rings In New Year Ahead Of Forecasted Pace

Tuesday, Jan 07, 2020

KELOWNA, B.C. – January 7th, 2019. Residential sales for December across the region of Revelstoke to Peachland

greatly exceeded December 2018’s sales by 23%, however came in shy of November’s 527 sales showing a

decrease of 24%, reports the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board (OMREB).

 

The rebound in residential sales should help to mitigate the recent declines in property tax assessments

experienced by many homeowners in centers across our region.

 

“While activity was subdued during the first half of the year, the last couple of months saw a strong push towards

market recovery”, says OMREB President Michael Loewen, adding that “as we head into 2020, it’s great to see demand

remains robust as market conditions have pulled ahead of previous forecasts.”

 

The overall number of active listings dropped over last month’s inventory of 3,205 coming in at 2,715; down 4% 

from the same time in 2018. The average number of days to sell a home increased slightly to 102 days. It’s 

important to note that OMREB reports an average of days on market for the entire Board region and that the

indicator will vary depending on home type and sub-region.
