The statistics indicate that for both the Comox Valley and Campbell River the number of units sold is down compared to last year. However, average prices are up 19% and 18% respectively and inventory levels are low. Two years ago there were 257 single family dwellings for sale in the Comox Valley, and now there are 170. In Campbell River there are 89 houses for sale at this time.
