As you can see by our statistics, the Okanagan Shuswap Real Estate home sales have dropped substantially in January of 2015 compared to January 2014. At first look a person might assume that, "This must be the oil prices". However, one month does not make a market. What could be another explanation? In January 2015, some reports say, we had the biggest snowfall in the Okanagan Shuswap's history. Our Vernon office was shut down for 2 days. In fact, there was virtually no one looking at houses for that week. People were too busy digging themselves out and trying to get back to life and work. One year ago the weather in the Okanagan Shuswap in January was excellent for a January. Our record snowfall this year may change our stats a bit. In fact we are comparing sales of 3 weeks this year against a full 4 weeks last year. With the recent drop in interest rates it is an even better time to buy.
