Campbell River Fast Facts - April 2018

Spring glorious Spring. Lovin’ the sunshine. When I pull into my driveway, I can see the weeds in my garden beds and gravel areas poking through and getting a head start on me. The Spring market is upon us and now I am too busy to weed.

 

Campbell River’s real estate continues to be plagued with low inventory. If there were more listings, there would be more sales. Which best explains why sales are down from last year. There simply is not enough supply to satisfy demand:

 

  • In the 12 months ending April 30th, 2018 there have been 1047 sales of all property types in Campbell River, down 7% over the same period in 2017.  The highest number of annual sales was 1181 in 2007.

 

  • The 12 month average sale price of a Campbell River home is $417,096, up 15%.  The average lot price is $188,239, up 35%. (The 16 lot sales in April only averaged $228,828 so you can see where this is going!) If you purchased an ‘average’ home in 2008, you paid $315,252.  If you bought an average lot, you paid $111,479.
