Cool Summer Breeze
Cool Summer Breeze
In an unlikely coincidence, it seems like Kelowna’s housing market climate continues to rise and fall with the weather. Now that we’ve made it through the most intense heat wave in recent memory the market is showing signs of cooling – but that doesn’t mean it’s lost its momentum yet!
With inventory last month at half of what it was the year before, housing prices up nearly 30%, and sales taking an average of only 22 days (wow!) we’re still in a very competitive housing market. Our population has seen steady growth throughout the pandemic with no signs of slowing down – another contributing factor to our red-hot market climate. In fact, the Okanagan’s population has grown faster than anywhere else in the past 5 years, with Canadian residents accounting for the majority of this growth. As construction continues to boom in both residential and commercial sectors, Kelowna remains a top contender for one of the most desirable places to live in Canada.
