Quote of The Month:

"The best investment on Earth is Earth." – Louis Glickman

Comox Valley Single Family Dwellings(SFD).

September 2023 witnessed an unexpected resurgence in the real estate market, defying the conventional autumn slowdown. The sudden influx of buyers took many by surprise, prompting us to wonder where they were during the typically bustling month of June. While it's true that, on average, last September featured lower prices compared to this September (+7%), the market still lags significantly, with a decline of over $100,000 since May 2022, marking an 11% decrease overall.

However, when viewed from a different perspective, the market's resilience since hitting its lows in June 2023 is remarkable. It has rebounded, showing an increase of $128,000 or 14%, approximately. This positive turnaround can be aptly described as a substantial bounce back.

In summary, when considering the average sale price for Single Family Dwellings in the Valley, it's evident that a peak was reached in May 2022, and the prevailing trend points downwards. But then again, who expected September to ellipse June?
