Synopsis for Nanaimo
In Nanaimo for January 2019 there were 268 active listings of single family freehold homes, which is 48% higher then January 2018.
The graphs below are for Nanaimo and show the average sold numbers and average sold price since 2015 (single family homes only.)
The following graph shows the % difference of the housing price index (HPI) from the same month 12 months ago. It is split into the different sub-areas and is for single family homes.
The following graph shows what is called the absorption rate. This is the time it would take the current homes for sale, to sell, if no new homes were listed, which indicates whether we have a sellers, balanced or buyers market. The 3 rates are based on 1, 6 and 12 months of sales data.
These figures do concentrate on single family homes but if you would like similar information for other property types, such as apartments or patio homes, or specific geographical areas of Nanaimo or Parksville/Qualicum, then I would be more than happy to discuss those with you as well.
