The Year Tobiano Sold Out

2021 will likely go down in history as the year that Tobiano real estate finally sold out. I am not sure who tracks this other than myself, but this is a big deal. Back in 2006, when I first joined the marketing team with Sotheby's, we had about two years of tremendous sales as that was the lead up to the late 2008 real estate market crash. Once that crash happened, I was the only agent to stick it out at Tobiano and slowly watched our annual sales go from 5 units to 10 to 15 to 20+ per year. We sit at July 26th, 2021 and have already sold 77 properties since January 1st, 2021. Those sales have ranged from a $189,000 building lot to a $1.65 million home on the Bluff. Here is a recap of where the various real estate projects…

Kamloops Real Estate Stats: June 2021 vs. June 2020


The Kamloops real estate market continued to simmer down in summer as unit sales show only a 10% rise compared to June of 2020. The Kamloops market typically sees a slow down in the summer months so this was predicted. We did anticipate an uptick in sales once the government opened up travel restrictions again so we may see a bump up in sales for the month of July as those deals move towards completion. I temper that comment with the fact that we have had some major forest fire activity in the Kamloops area so this may keep some buyer's at bay as well until those get under control. 

Supply remains an issue in the Kamloops market. For 6 months now we have seen a reduction in supply compared to…

April was another banner year for single family house sales in the Kamloops and area real estate market.

The total number of single family units sold was 217 which represents 280.7% increase over the same month last year. The average sales price was $656,238.00 which represents a 26.7% increase of the same month last year and was 26.1% higher year to date. The number of new listings which I look at to determine if we have more available inventory over last year was 319 new listings.

That was 125 more than we had in April of 2020. Year to date in 2021 we are 607 listings more than we were the same time last year. That is a good sign as the more listings we have hopefully the less competition we have on each listing and prices will start to normalize.…
