Campbell River Real Estate Market Update for July 2020

The monthly Campbell River Real Estate Market Update for July 2020 shows compared to a year ago, July 2019, an increase in sales for the entire local area. Overall sales from last July in the Campbell River were up 18% and up while the average days to sell increased overall by 135% from last July 2020. The statistics show the Campbell is still in recovery and working through its excess inventory but getting back to normal. 

  • Single Family homes sales have been catching up, 12 months to date there were 420 sales while last year sales were 487. In the 12 months, we are only 13.8% lower than last year. 
  • In Campbell River, the benchmark price of a single-family home last month was $456,000, an increase of 5% over last year Benchmark pricing tracks the value of “middle-of-the-range” or “typical” homes and excludes the extreme high-end and low-end properties in Campbell River. It is normally a more stable price indicator than average prices. 

“Our housing market has seemingly rebounded from the COVID-19 dip we witnessed in April,” says VIREB president Kevin Reid. “We believe that the recovery is being fueled by low-interest rates and supply shortages, and we’re cautiously optimistic that the turnaround will last…An interesting development we’re noting is that there seems to be more demand for single-family homes and less interest in condominiums and townhouses at the moment,” adds Reid.

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.
