Average prices saw double-digit percentage increases across all home categories compared to the same month last year, with the greatest increase occurring within the condominium category with a 44.8% increase.

“Our sales performance in June, makes us one of the few markets in the province that have not been heavily impacted by the recent interest rate hikes by the Bank of Canada.” 

– Association of Interior REALTORS® President Lyndi Cruickshank.

“Average prices have plateaued since the start of 2022, and we know that our region provides buyers with more affordable options. I foresee buyers finding attractive alternatives to purchase here, even as interest rates continue to rise.”
