The total number of single family units sold was 217 which represents 280.7% increase over the same month last year.

There were 283 residential unit sales recorded by the Kamloops & District Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in February 2021. This is 37.4 per cent above the numbers that were recorded in February 2020. The average MLS® residential price in the area was $515,293, up by approx. 20 per cent from $428,824 recorded in the same month, last year.
