Local Real Estate Summary to the End of May 2017

The average days to sell a single family home here during the month of May was 32 days compared to 35 days a year ago...faster by 9%. However, about 50% of homes are selling in under 2 weeks, many within a couple of days and with multiple offers. Yet with even a few homes taking much longer to sell perhaps as priced too high, the overall average days to sell ends up being higher. The list to sell ratio of 99% was the same as in May 2016. May overall sales dollars for single family homes was down 15% when compared to May of 2016. Again, this is a reflection of a tight inventory. But... let's not forget that the real estate market set new records last spring. Our coastal weather patterns have almost returned to normal and golfers can once again 'hit the links'. Overall though, the weather is about 1 month behind normal for this time of year. In 2016, we saw a large increase in the number of people 'cashing out' from what was an extremely heated Lower Mainland market and buying over here. For many, it's time to escape that crazy Lower Mainland traffic. The difference in real estate pricing between here and there is huge! Sell there if you can and buy here for much less. That's the big win! Plus the quality of life here is so very good. Hiking and biking trails are everywhere and it's a golfers and gardeners paradise here! Events in our local small towns wouldn't be what they are without the level of enthusiastic volunteerism that exists. So come join in and get involved! We are only an hour and a half ferry ride or a 25 minute plane ride away from the big city of Vancouver for those who want to visit family and friends while perhaps taking in some of those world-class city amenities. Couple that with being a 2 hour drive from Victoria or Tofino and being located within a 'stone's throw' from the enchanting Gulf Islands and Discovery Islands for day trips, makes this a highly desirable place to retire to and enjoy life. That's the really big win! Call Tom!
