Kamloops home sales continue to climb.
The Real Estate Association reports sales in Kamloops climbed again last month compared to February of 2017.
Association President Cyndi Crossley says 25 oflast month’s sales were over the $600,000 mark.
“We’ve got 196 units that have sold in residential with a dollar volume of $73.7 million. Definitely up over this time last year. What’s interesting is that there were 192 sold in February last year with the dollar volume being at $67 million.”
There was also a bit of a surprise for the most popular location for buyers in the region.
“We have Sun Peaks that have come right on board for the second month in a row here with the number of units sold up at Sun Peaks as being 20. Coming in close behind in second place is South Kamloops with 17 units having sold and a tie for third place between Brocklehurst and Sahali with 14 units having sold in both those areas in the month of February.”
Crossley says while there are a segment of buyers from out of province the bulk of real estate shoppers are from the lower mainland as the exodus out of unaffordable Metro Vancouver continues.
She says it is still a sellers market with listings are down by more than 20% from last year.
