Synopsis

 

In Nanaimo for April 2015 there were 452 active listings of single family freehold homes and 290 in Parksville/Qualicum.

 

The graphs below are for Nanaimo and show the average sold numbers and average sold price since January 2012.

 

 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.

 

 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.

 

In summary we can see that:

1- House sales have increased on last year.

2- Average house prices have increased on last year.

3- Interest rates are still very low.

Therefore whether you are looking to buy or sell a home then these 3 points would indicate that now is the time to consider listing or purchasing.

 

As always I hope you find these monthly newsletters informative and if at any time you or any of your friends, relatives or co-workers are looking for a professional realtor to help them buy or sell a home, or just have a real estate question, please call my personal cell,250-739-1228, or drop me an email.

 

Thank you
