The Campbell River Market Cycle

In Campbell River the usual pattern is for housing markets to enter into seasonal cycles. While spring temperatures start to climb and more buyers start their house hunt, this pushes up the demand for listings and pushes markets closer to a seller’s market. The same applies to the fall buying season. Terms such as “seller’s market,” “buyer’s market,” or “balanced market” are used to explain where the Campbell River Area Real Estate Market is. Each market is determined based on the sales-to-active listings ratio.
