Okanagan Housing Small Town, Big Opportunity Time

I am very impressed by the market condition in the Okanagan this month.

Development projects are again buzzing with buyer interest, and there is a discernable uptick of buyer activity in small town Summerland as well.

Year to date the Summerland MLS statistics are the strongest in 5 years, building upon the foundational base of the previous 24 months of stable demand.

Our office is now seeing some competing offers come into play for well priced product. In particular, there has been a real uptick on properties priced over $500,000, with an average of one per week sold year to date, which is very positive for the local market, and is putting a serious dent on supply.

We are clearly sensing that opportunity time is back, and wanted to take steps to ensure you are informed, sooner rather than later. In particular, we have a 22acre parcel that is currently zoned for 6 to 8 Country Residential lots that will be reduced this week from the current $639,900 to under $600,000.

We wanted to let you be among the first to know of this upcoming price change in hopes you will be positioned to make a decisive move on it.

 

Thank you,
