First of all I would like to welcome Chad Bennett and Carolynn Moon to the Move Okanagan Group who both joined this month. Chad was number 3 at Re/Max Kelowna and Carolynn was also a Top Producer in Toronto. My Team now has 4 agents, including Tara Crittenden and 2 Unlicensed Admin. Assistants. 

I am overly excited about this growth and thrilled to work with such fine people on my Team.

Our core values are:
•Integrity powered, we put clients needs first
•Trustworthy passion for sales
•Focusing on possibilities and results rather than challenges
•Magnetic high energy outcomes with a positive attitude
•We demonstrate pride, enthusiasm and excellence in everything we do

It is still a crazy market, and who knew that prices would keep climbing up! It has slowed down a bit since the travel restrictions, but we are still battling low inventory.

Sales and prices are up compared to the same period last year, however that increase is in direct relation to the quarantine experienced throughout the month of April 2020 and not a true reflection of accurate market changes.

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.

Let’s look at Sales prices from April 2016 to April 2021: (average price, Central Okanagan)
 
                                                  2016                      2020                2021
Single Family home:       604,952                742,553           1,030,020 
Townhomes:                       391,227                 498,853          641,003
Condos:                                 279,365                 335,673          435,301
 
Pretty amazing figures! Please see the below detailed Stats Sheets for Central Okanagan, North Okanagan and South Okanagan, with price increases and sales.
 
My daughter Stephanie is a mortgage broker and can deal with over 40 lenders and is available anytime to discuss refinancing or a new mortgage www.onetreemortgages.com

Wishing you a wonderful May. Always working in your best interest.

 

Best wishes,
Annette and Team
