June started slow but finished quite busy with many situations of multiple offers. I think most Sunshine Coast Realtors will agree that June started slow but finished with gusto. We will have to see if the momentum continues into July. Typically, the summer months are quiet with people on holidays, but I have a feeling that this may not be the case this year. It is hard for some Sellers now in some areas of our market with an increase in inventory, Buyers are having more of a selection. Some other areas of the market we are seeing homes that have sat for the last 2 years selling. The market over a million has been incredibly active.
I am still concerned about the long-term outlook for our economy but at the moment it is a great time to sell with this strong market
Sunshine Coast is still the best neighborhood in the Lower Mainland and the best value, being 20 to 30 percent lower than comparable areas of the Lower Mainland. Why fight the traffic when you can relax aboard a scenic cruise while catching up on rest or work during the 40 minute commute.
