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. This makes it seem that July was an anomaly month where home prices were affected more by overwhelming inventory at the same time that demand started to decrease.
Vancouver Island constantly amazes me with how incredible it is here, and how much there is to discover. Whether you’re new to the Island, a local, or reading this internationally, here are some facts you may not know about Vancouver Island, located in British Columbia!
Vancouver Island is a very unique and outdoorsy place to live with the mildest weather in Canada, which is perfect for creating your own Westcoast outdoor environment outside on your deck or patio. The beauty of outdoor space is that it extends your living space, and studies show spending time outdoors can reduce blood pressure, muscle tension and heart rate. Finding ways to rock your outdoor space is the perfect opportunity to spend more time outside and create your own outdoor oasis!
