CAMOSUN WESTSIDE Sooke’s #1 Real Estate Office 2016 SOOKE’S REAL ESTATE REVIEW

As we head into the spring market of 2017 activity in our local Sooke real estate market is already intense. With extraordinary low inventory levels buyers are reacting to the upward pressure on pricing, scouring the market place en masse, in search of that elusive residence that’s ideal for their needs. In some instances buyers are offering on homes that might not tick all of the boxes they would like to see in a home. The market’s continued climb, means a delayed purchase in finding a home that only meets certain criteria can add many thousands of dollars. 2016 saw an increase, slightly in excess of 50%, in all types of real estate transactions over 2015. In the benchmark single family detached category there was an impressive 45% increase in the volume of sales in the Sooke market. The average days on market was reduced by a third to 59 days. For buyers, the influx of new properties coming to market is just starting and will gather momentum as we stretch into March & April. For sellers, the spring market of 2017 offers an extraordinary opportunity to maximize your sale’s price. Call for a relaxed discussion on the value of your home in today’s market. Whatever your real estate needs we’re here to help!
