What's up in the Okanagan?

Not a lot...except for MOI.

High MOIs based on the latest March numbers.

Central Okanagan has a sales inventory ratio of 10.02%. ie 10.02% of the houses listed got sold...or a MOI of 10

Shushwap/Revelstoke has a sales/inventory ratio of 4%. MOI is 25

North Okanagan 7%. MOI is  14.

Now for the Ok sales grind to a halt in late fall and winter. We are however coming into peak buying season, so if the MOIs do not drop down soon, I would expect even more pressure on their market.

The sales are well down from last March as you can read from the rather sombre President's comments. The only thing that saved them from critically high MOIs was the fact that inventory declined 5% from last March.


  1. I believe it was 3 years ago I entered a casual conversation with a gentleman from the S. Okanagan who told me the market had slowed but no way prices would drop and/or prices had dropped elsewhere but not in his hood. I believe Vancouver is in that place now. So 2 1/2-3 years to hold my breath.

  7. 2 SFH sales in West Van today

    $2,650,000List Price:Sold Price: $2,255,000


    $2,088,000List Price:Sold Price: $1,850,000

    The crazy numbers seem to be waning., though judging by the buyer's agents, both Mainland buyers.

  8. Fish,

    It seems that you have access: So how do you think prices are holding-up(or not)? Any variance between types or location? Just your general sense of things.

    Thanks for the info

    1. I am far from an expert, just another observer.

      However since you asked, every time I think this goose is cooked along comes another spurt of buying so that there is no big drop. There seems to be a cohort of people who are waiting for a drop to get in.

      Of course things are very local. Things in Maple Ridge, Anmore, Richmond are very weak, whereas places like North Van, West Van, Van West and Whiterock are a bit better bid.

      I cannot see any collapse in the market at present, just a gentle glide down if list/sales stay around 40% or so.

      Would love to see a good drop in median and average for April which would help our case

    2. Nothing wrong with a gental glide down, it will give bears time to further build their cash positions.
