Campbell River Market Update for March 2020

The monthly Campbell River Market Update for March 2020 shows the market was picking up speed. In January the housing market started slow and has been gaining momentum since then. Regionally, the benchmark price of a single-family home in the Campbell River area last month was $441,300, an increase of five percent over last year.

Single-family house sales for the month of March was up 67% in the Comox Valley, and 32% in Campbell River. Prices increased also. Considering that the COVID-19 pandemic hampered the marketing efforts in the last 2 weeks of March, the March market was very strong. 

The Market Intelligence Report from the British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) states that no one knows how the unfolding COVID-19 outbreak will impact the economy long-term. B.C. is facing a sudden stop in economic activity with uncertainty on when things may return to normal. BCREA feels it is likely B.C. home sales and prices will likely face declines in the spring and early summer but should recover in the second half of the year, assuming the outbreak resolves.

Now more than ever sellers and buyers will rely on technology -such as virtual tours – which can help a large part of the real estate transaction occur without face-to-face interaction.

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.
