Steady Upward Pressure on Price
The Single Family statistics for this month point to rising average prices in both the Comox Valley and Campbell River. The market is quite active, even aggressive at times.

In spite of low inventory, pricing is still important.

Lifestyle considerations figure large in buying decisions, and this bodes well for Vancouver Island.

Note to Readers: The Real Estate Board has introduced a new system called Matrix. The interface on the statistics changed this month, and we hope we have been consistent in our analysis.
