Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Season with great relaxing times with family and friends.
I was up at Silver Star with my family and we all enjoyed the snow and the atmosphere up there. Being away from it all, definitely has a great effect on everybody!
Now back to Real Estate…
- Market has not changed much from last month, which is normal for the Season. 2019 got mostly busy towards the end of the year as the election was over and buyers were on the fence too long, and finally decided to buy.
- Kelowna ranked No. 1 for investors buying in Western Canada for 2020. No. 2 is Prince George, Chilliwack is 3rd, Lethbridge Alta., at 4th, and Moose Jaw, Sask., in 5th. Excellent for our market here!
- Kelowna’s airport is the second busiest airport in BC
For me this year has gone by very fast and hopefully it was a very successful one for you on a personal and business level. It is always fun to reflect on what we have accomplished and what we would like to change in the new year.
It is hard to stay in touch with everybody as our lives are consumed with so many tasks and demands but know how much I appreciate your continued support.
I had a busy November in regard to Sales and it feels that Buyers are looking again more.

Annette helped us with the purchase of our first home. We could not have accomplished our dream without her steady hand, patience, experience and incredible professionalism. We have referred many friends to her and she continues to deliver, every time. In a world of inflated egos and incompetence, Annette is an oasis of competence and true service based guidance.
Hard to believe December is just around the corner… Time seems to be flying by!
As the holiday season is approaching it is not unusual for our market to slow down. Listings and Sales have dropped already, which is normal for this time of the year. We see less activity as we head into the colder months, but often it is good to list, as there is not that much inventory on the market.
Average price for single family homes are up 5% from last October, but 10.9% down from last month.
Condo prices saw a larger shift and went down 5% from last October. It is too early to say whether this shift in the condo category is an anomaly or the beginning of a trend or merely just a case of construction of more affordable units having caught-up to the buyer demands creating
I am an extremely high maintenance client and wanted more information than most. I always felt like I was the only customer that mattered in Annette’s portfolio and she is always there to answer questions and deal with my concerns. I would not hesitate to use Annette for all of my real estate needs. I have referred many friends and family and have heard nothing but positive feedback.
Thank you for all of your assistance. You are a true professional, Annette.
As the economists are saying, in-spite of the politics, the residential real estate market numbers are improving. Sales are up for September by 14.5% over last September. Numbers are still a bit behind last year on a YTD basis but they are quickly catching up.
Prices are still a bit below last year with the average down 1.22%. If the price gap is narrowing we may even get ahead of last year by the end of December.
Listing numbers are lagging compared to 2018 which may be accounting for some of the improvement in prices. It certainly is a buyer’s market at this time and will probably remain so for a while yet.

Most of all my
August has been a very busy month, and buyers are making offers, as most of my listings are either sold or are getting good action of showings and lots of inquires from out of town buyers.
- August 2019 residential sales are up by 9.1% compared to August 2018, but for the first time in a while, prices are higher than last year with the median up by 2.4%.
- The big jump in sales occurred in the $320K-$440K range with a still healthy rise in the $440K-$560K range. Above the $560K range sales were lower than last year. Luxury homes are selling slower, and we see many price reductions in the 1 Mill and up.
Where are we headed in the current market:
There are many potential influences on the real estate market and the economy as a whole could play a
We’d like to thank you, your team and Ange for doing such a great job with the sale of our manufactured home. We picked an inopportune time to put the place up for sale, just as the market took a downturn. But your diligence with marketing and your extensive contacts won the day and we received an acceptable outcome. The professionalism and good advice you provided is very much appreciated and we highly recommend your service to any prospective sellers.
Gratefully yours, Rodney and Ann Bell
