Christmas is only a few days away, and before we know it will be 2014. It’s the time of the year when real estate is winding down for the holidays and I have time reflect over the last year and think about all the good that was done finding many families new homes here in the Okanagan over the past year. Many of these families are going to enjoy their first Okanagan Christmas which is nice. I have to personally thank all of my clients for their trust in me this year making it another very successful year, and making our Coldwell Banker office number #1 (for real estate transactions) in Peachland again for another year in 2013.
Once Christmas is over, I get busy and start working on my annual Peachland real estate report which looks quite interesting which will be out the first week of January. The sales are up and the prices are slightly lower, but the report should have some really interesting real estate facts to review. I also have a report for the Central Okanagan which sales were up, quite substantially.
Once we done reflecting over the past year of 2013, and it’s time to look into the crystal ball of real estate for 2014, and see what we think may happen in 2014. The most exciting event to kick off in late January will be new owners will take possession of their new townhomes up at Ponderosa Golf and others to follow February right through to next September. A new community will be born here in Peachland very soon. The next year looks very good, we should continue to have brisk sales, prices slightly below 2013 standards but, and as long as interest rates hold, we be in excellent shape to have another great year.
