The conversation remains much the same as it has throughout 2021. We are operating in a strong sellers market where the consumption of real estate far exceeds the supply. We had a light slowdown in the market throughout July and August, however, it immediately returned to a strong sellers market as soon as September hit. Come key takeaways from the December market stats are that the average price point of a detached home in Squamish is above $1.6M (nuts) as well as days on market across the board is low, however 4 days for a townhome to sell is just crazy! That means bully offers, with no subjects where the norm throughout the month.
Throughout January we have started to see some more inventory hit the market. Not enough to balance market conditions, however, it has spirits up as compared to November/December of 2020.
If you are looking to sell your home, townhome or condo – spring is fast approaching and conditions couldn’t be better for you. If you are looking at entering the market, its time to start the conversation on how to best prepare you, as it takes planning and preparation in order to be successful in this market. Guidance is key on all fronts, so please let me know if you have any questions.
