Victoria Area Market Update

We are in an amazing Seller’s Market!  This is a great time to Sell and Buying in a rising market that might give you good appreciation on your investment.

The paragraph below is from an article published earlier in the week in the Victoria Times Colonist.

Greater Victoria’s real estate market continued its strong pace in May as the average price of a single-family house rose to a record $763,517 and the number of properties sold blasted to a new high. The latest average price in the capital region is up by 17.6 per cent from $649,431 a year ago. It’s a seller’s market as buyers face rising prices and multiple offers in hot spots such as Fairfield, Oak Bay and Saanich East. Benchmark prices, calculated by the Victoria Real Estate Board based on a “typical” house, also give a sense of what’s happening. For the entire region, the benchmark was $584,700 in May.
