The number of home sales in the Okanagan has risen dramatically over this time last year.
The months of May, June and July have seen a lot more sales over this time last year especially when it comes to entry level homes.
“It’s just been nonstop. I think went for a couple months with seven days a week, about 16 hour days so very busy,” says Kelowna realtor Jaime Briggs.
According to the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate board, sales in July of 2014 have been the strongest on record since 1980.
The jump from last July to this July is also significant.
In the North Okanagan the number of residential units sold this July compared to last July is up by 56%.
In the Central Okanagan sales have risen by 24% from July 2013 to July 2014 while in the Shuswap it’s jumped by 23%.
The South Okanagan has seen an increase of 13% in sales this July compared to July of 2013.
