Wrap Up:


We closed out another great year for the Okanagan Real Estate Market with fairly average active listing and sales numbers for this season. However, we saw both an increase in prices and a significant decrease in new listings, which could be good news for your property if you are willing to offer a competitive list price. If you are considering listing your property, now could be the time to get into the game and talk strategy with a knowledgeable listing agent today.
