Comox Valley Real Estate Market Update for November 2020

The monthly Comox Valley Real Estate Market Update for November 2020 shows compared to a year ago, an increase in sales for the entire local area. Overall residential sales from last November in the Comox Valley were up 25% and up while the average days to sell was down by 15% from last November. The sales over the last 12 months are up by 14.9%, the market is very strong.  

Swift sales in the latter half of the year is causing upward price pressure. The housing market remains strong. We have seen significant gains but as we head into fall the numbers have tempered but not as much as expected.

The Single Family statistics for this month point to rising average prices in both the Comox Valley and Campbell River. The market is quite active, even aggressive at times.
In spite of low inventory, pricing is still important.

  • Single Family homes sales show rising average prices, the market is active and strong.  
  • In the Comox Valley, the benchmark price was $544,900, a slight increase from one year ago. 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. 

“Despite what may be the worst recession in B.C. history, the housing market had a record fall season, and prices are rapidly rising as pent-up demand floods into an under-supplied market, … As that pent-up demand from the loss of a spring season fades, sales will likely slow from their current pace, but activity is expected to remain strong as record-low mortgage rates and a recovering economy continue to drive sales.” says BCREA.

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.
