NANAIMO - The Holiday season is in full swing and the real estate market in Nanaimo is making a shift as well. The market seems to be trying to balance compared to what it has experienced over the last couple of years. While anything under $500k still seems to be a seller’s market, anything over $700k could be considered a buyer's market and anything in between is in a fluid and transitional state.
It makes this a much more comfortable market as the supply of listings is now meeting full demand of home buyers and it alleviates competition for home buyers. Timing is also important to keep in mind, if you're looking to buy, sellers are typically motivated to complete a sale before the end of year so a competitive offer and willingness to move in this season could land you a great deal.
There were 76 single family homes sold in Nanaimo on November 2018 which was a 34% decrease from November 2017 with condos and townhouses seeing a 20% decrease as well. One glaring stat is that days to sell a Condo/apartment went up by 188% compared to November 2017 and 257% compared to October 2018. Could be a fluke but also more of a sign of what we’ll be seeing in 2019.
