Campbell River Market Update for February 2019

The monthly Campbell River Market Update for February 2019 shows, “Locally, the benchmark price of a single-family home in the Campbell River area hit $418,100, an increase of eight per cent over February 2018. Trend-wise, despite continued price increases, VIREB’s housing market has transitioned from one favouring sellers to one that is balanced or near balanced. Balanced markets offer buyers more choice and more room to negotiate, while sellers may need to curb their expectations. When fewer buyers are competing for a property, sellers need to be far more strategic. We’ll conduct a comparative marketing analysis using recent sales data to determine an optimal selling price for your home. Sellers need to realize the glory days of 2016 and 2017 are over. We’re seeing a clear disconnect between buyers and sellers. Many people still want to list their homes at 2016 and 2017 prices, and that just isn’t realistic.” says Kaye Broens, 2019 President.

Market Legend

  • Seller’s Market – In a seller’s market, conditions are favorable for sellers to get higher prices for their homes. The number of buyers who want homes exceeds the number of homes available. In this type of market, the homes sell quickly, prices will increase, and a large number of buyers are available for a minimal inventory of homes. These characteristics have implications for the buyer who has to make decisions quickly, must pay more, and frequently has their conditional offers rejected.
  • Balanced Market – In a balanced market, the number of homes on the market is equal to the demand or number of buyers. Houses sell within a reasonable period, the demand equals supply, sellers accept reasonable offers, and prices are generally stable. The implications for the buyer in this type of market are that the atmosphere is more relaxed. There is a reasonable number of homes from which to choose.
  • Buyer’s Market – A buyer’s market allows buyers to come in at lower prices. The supply of homes on the market exceeds the demand or the number of buyers. Homes will be on the market longer, fewer buyers will be available compared to the higher inventory of homes, and house prices are reduced. The implications for the buyers in this type of market are more favorable, negotiating leverage, more time to search for a home, and better prices.
