North Vancouver Island Market Update for June 2020

The monthly North Vancouver Island Market Update for June 2020 shows compared to a year ago, June 2019, a large increase in sales for the entire local area. The overall number of sales from last June in North Vancouver Island was up 100% while the overall inventory was down by 14%. Great news for home sellers, the market has fully bounced back and even has lots of pent up buyer demand from the previous months’ depressed market. 

  •  Regionally, Single Family home sales increased 27% in the Comox Valley and decreased 5.2% in Campbell River from June 2019. Benchmark prices were up 6% and 3% respectively. 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. 

“We’re cautiously optimistic that the housing market is bouncing back more quickly than expected,” says VIREB president Kevin Reid. “Pent-up demand and low-interest rates undoubtedly account for part of the surge, so we’ll have to wait and see whether the recovery continues.”

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.
