Warm weather, sunny skies, and a new revamped website is what's new in the Okanagan. We are getting geared up for another busy year in real estate. I have to thank all of my clients who let me help them find a new home in 2012. I was very lucky to make the top 20 % for production in the world in regards to all Coldwell Banker agents. It's not about awards, but I think back to all the people who moved to the sunny Okanagan from all parts of the world and are really enjoying our beautiful valley. Alot of them are very excited about there first summer with the sights and sounds of a Okanagan summer.
The real estate market was quite steady last year with prices slightly declining of about 2-4% in the Okanagan. It will be interesting this year on how sales go, but so far sales are down in Jan thru March, but the last three weeks have been really busy. The HST/GST tax takes a new look on April 01, so ithe outlook is more development lots are going to sell and spur construction of new homes. This would be a big boost for the economy and new jobs for the people in the valley.
With spring here, it would be long before the Ponderosa Golf Course opens this summer, and the first phase of townhomes are 63% sold. If you have the chance to view the show homes, please do, an excellent value, and the product is superior in style comfort and presentation. With the new golf course and the proposed expanded Marina in the works, it going to be a very big year for Peachland.
If your ever in the Okanagan or currently living here and are looking for some real estate assistance, don't hesitate o give me a call. I here to help, and can help you with anything you need.
