Kamloops Real Estate Market Stats: September 2021

September 2021 KADREA stats are in. This past September saw a 14.2% reduction in homes sold compared to September of 2020. This is not unexpected as September 2020 was the result of pent up demand from Covid-19 and saw some of the highest sales numbers we have ever seen.

It's actually a good thing to see things a little slower than they were a year ago as this means things are not quite as frantic. That being said, the average sales price was up 11% over the same time last year. With such a limited supply of active listings, we are still having numerous bidding wars which in turn is driving up the average price.

Most of the buyers in this market are from out of town, likely…

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…
