Cool Market Breeze

Jul 18, 2022 | Finance, Local, Real Estate

For the first time since before the pandemic, average housing prices in Kelowna are down 2 months in a row. The benchmark of a single-family home in the Central Okanagan dropped once again from May to June, showing us that the market may finally be cooling as we move through the summer.

In fact, the entire Canadian housing market seems to be following a similar trend with MLS average home prices dropping more than 13% since the record benchmark was set in February. That being said, these numbers are all relative since they’re being compared to record-setting market conditions over the last two years.

Market valuation continues to remain high, especially in the Okanagan. With BC boasting the highest number of active construction projects it’s had in the last decade, our beautiful province will undoubtedly continue to thrive. Further to this, the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission just released that the increase in average youth population just rose to above three times the national average, and the rise in young adults is now five times that of the national average. With such positive changes taking place in our community it’s no wonder Kelowna remains the fastest growing city in Canada
