Summer Sales are Starting to Slow in Kelowna
The Association of Interior REALTORS® President Chelsea Mann goes over the decline in market activity over the last month.
“Seasonally, it is characteristic to see sales activity cool during the hot summer months, which given the slight dip from activity in June, isn’t surprising,” says the Association of Interior REALTORS® President Chelsea Mann, adding that “it is promising to see some typical market activity despite high interest rate hikes creating a challenging climate for buyers and sellers.”
The benchmark price for a single-family home in Central Okanagan was up 0.9% to $1,063,700. Central Okanagan townhomes saw their benchmark price drop to $768,500 and $514,900 respectively. There were 1,154 single-family homes added to the market resulting in a 2.5% increase in supply during June. Townhomes had 327 units added to the market and condos saw 527 new units add to the real estate supply. The days to sell a home in Central Okanagan are up across all home types.
