The monthly Port Alberni Area Real Estate Market Update for January 2021 shows compared to a year ago, an increase in sales for the entire local area. Overall residential sales from last January in the Port Alberni Area were up 30% and up while the average days to sell was up by 17% from last January. The sales over the last 12 months are up by 16%, the market is strong.
Incredibly swift sales in Single Family Detached and townhomes is causing inventory to stay low with only 2 months of inventory of each. The housing market remains strong. We have seen significant gains but as we head into winter the numbers have tempered but not as much as expected.
In the Port Alberni Area, the benchmark price reached $371,200, a seven per cent year-over-year increase. Benchmark pricing tracks the value of “middle-of-the-range” or “typical” homes and excludes the extreme high-end and low-end properties in Port Alberni. It is normally a more stable price indicator than average prices.
“A dearth of listings is an ongoing issue throughout our area. We’re confident that sales activity would be much higher if we had adequate supply. We’d normally say this is a great time to sell, but with so little inventory available, buyers and sellers are in a Catch-22 situation. It’s hard to part with your home if you have nowhere to move.In a competitive housing market, using a REALTOR® can help streamline the buying and selling process to ensure the best possible outcome while mitigating associated risks.” says VIREB president Ian Mackay
