The Kelowna real estate market was on fire this past month, with single family house sales volume up nearly 47% over last July!
Three months of pent-up demand (due to COVID) and a very delayed spring real estate market resulted in a lot of activity these last two months.
Single Family housing inventory continues to be low (-19%) and we are seeing bidding wars with many properties selling above list price or with backup offers in place. There is also a high volume of luxury homes selling these last 2-months as home buyers move out of higher priced markets like Vancouver and Toronto. Average home prices were driven up 14% to $812,875 (vs. $712,649) and Median prices up 6% to $725,000 from $685,000 last July 2019.
Condo sales also rose 12% this year with 150 condos sold in July 2020 vs. 134 last July, however, median condo prices dropped (-1%) to $339,000 from $343,000 last July 2019.
Your home is your BIGGEST investment! Working with a highly experienced realtor is essential in markets like these in order to navigate through marketing your property, strategic offer negotiations and complex paperwork.
