Investor Alert - Campbell River short of rental inventory

Hi All, the property management department at Remax Check Realty has spread the word to the sales team:


"If anyone has buyers looking for investment properties, property management needs new inventory – we’re out of houses, esp. 4 + bedrooms and there’s increasing demand."


One more indicator amongst many that Campbell River's real estate market is upwards and onwards. 42% of Buyers purchasing homes in Campbell River live within the area. Of those, 40% are residents of Campbell River for less than one year. Buyers like to 'temp rent' and try out Campbell River before they buy. If the property management department is out of inventory, as a Realtor, that tells me there are a lot more buyers in the wood work.


Campbell River's property values are excellent compared to Vancouver Island as a whole. In February, the median price of a single family home was $294,355 and the median price of a lot was $104,000. When taking into consideration the economic boom projects such as the BC Hydro dam upgrade and the new hospital build, both in construction over the next five years. The incoming construction workers for these projects will require rental accommodation.
