Prices are still rising

The average sale price for a single family home in the Cowichan Valley continues to rise but many Sellers are finding the current market is not offering the same returns as they may have seen a year ago.  Many are now “chasing the market” and price reductions on the “Hot sheets” are increasing daily.

Buyers have more to choose from

Buyers have more inventory to choose from & more time to make their selection. Many are doing their homework & being much more cautious before making an offer to ensure the asking price aligns with current market trends.
