A Slow in the Market
The opening statement of our Market Update last year was:
"This last month we have seen a definite slow in the market. Things are still moving along well but not flying off the shelves like they were a few months ago. Buyers are able to get into homes without having to forgo inspections or offer way above asking, which has been a welcome change for all of them!"
It's interesting because it is a similar feeling to what we have now. This year we have slowed the last few months largely due to the rising interest rates but it is also a time where families are going on vacation, people are taking time off to relax and getting some much needed R&R. This is a natural time for the market to quiet. I will be curious to see what happens in the fall when the market would tend to pick up - Will the interest rates keep the market quiet? Or will we see another upswing? It's "a crystal ball agazing" as one might say but it's a beautiful time of year here on the Sunshine Coast and I hope everyone is enjoying it.
The 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.
