Sustained activity throughout the year has seen confidence restored to the Sooke real estate market for seller’s with gains approaching 6% in the sale’s prices of single family detached homes over the previous year (Oct.08, 2015 V Oct. 07 2014). The volume of sales has been most impressive with an increase over the previous 12 month period ending at the time of printing at 48%. Additionally the number of homes being offered for sale has fallen away creating an almost ideal environment for sellers who price their homes fairly providing them with confidence that their home will sell. Buyer’s in turn have felt greater impetus to act than at anytime over the past 5 years as selection has narrowed and upward pressure on pricing has begun occurring throughout our marketplace. With the general increase in overall activity expected to continue unabated the 2015 fall market is a great opportunity to sell your home. The lack of current inventory of available homes means that there’s less competition for the buyers out there. While the fall market is often considered secondary to the main thrust associated with the spring market it can be quite beneficial exposing your home to the market now with limited selection you might just maximize your homes sale price this fall rather than waiting until the new year...
