In October Nanaimo saw a month over month increase in sales in the single family detached and townhouse markets. Part of this increase in sales is from buyers who were looking to capitalize on their fixed rate mortgage pre-approvals before they were affected by the interest rate increases. While the number of sales increased month over month, the amount of new listings on the market in October also increased meaning that there was a minimal impact on the months of inventory.
Our Senses (sight, sound, touch and smell) can change how we think and feel. Have you ever felt sensory overload from technology, information, notifications, or even numbness to your surroundings? This can be a sign of sensory imbalance from too much of the same repeated senses every day, which also causes numbness to our surroundings at home, affecting our mood, productivity and energy.

The average sale price for August increased from the month of July. Part of this increase is due to less properties being listed for sale. July saw 223 new property listings whereas August saw 155.
