Kamloops and region saw a total of 165 residential unit sales for August 2022, which was down from July 2022 at 194 sales. This was a whopping 42.5% decrease from August 2021.

Interestingly the Benchmark price saw double-digit increases across all home categories in the Kamloops area compared to the same month last year. From a listings standpoint, there were 391 new listings added in August, which was a marginal increase of 3.2% compared to the same time last year, yet 18.5% less than July's 480 new listings.

The market stats for the Kamloops area slid in July down to pre-pandemic levels. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as 2019 was a pretty good market for buying and selling real estate. The total number of residential unit sales was down 33.3% over July of 2021 (the peak). This is a large decrease, but there are a number of factors to consider leading to the drop.  

Mortgage rates have jumped up and lenders are struggling to process mortgages like they were 6 months ago, summer months are typically slower times of year for sales across all markets in BC and more people are trying to get out and have a vacation so all of these factors are definitely leading to a drop in sales activity.

We are shifting to a more balanced, if not "Buyer"…

Did the other shoe drop on real estate sales in Kamloops for the month of June? Not really. There was a total of 1446 residential unit sales across the entire region which represents a 30.3% decrease compared with the number of units sold in June of 2021. I anticipated an increase in listings and that held true at a 15.2% increase over the same time period last year in the Kamloops market. 

The biggest number is that overall inventory saw a 101.2% injection compared to June of 2021. When you have more inventory buyers feel less panicked to purchase a home that perhaps they really don't want/need. The market is shifting to a more balanced position allowing buyers to be more selective.  The challenge moving forward is managing sellers' expectations…
