Although we are seeing a very moderate increase in the average price in Nanaimo (compared with 2018) prices do seem to be flattening out when averaged across all price ranges and areas of Nanaimo.
 
With regard to the number of sales, these decreased again in 2019, but the drop was less then between 2018 and 2017, so we are again seeing a flattening out of the sales as well as the average price.

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 rates are based on 6 and 12 months of sales data.


 
The following graph shows how the homes sold v homes listed v total number of active listings have changed over the previous years.


 
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.
 
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.
