The hottest segment of the real estate market in the Central Okanagan are townhomes. There were 32 sales in August of 2008 compared to 70 sales in August of 2009. That accounts for a 94% increase in sales year over year and an absorption rate of nearly 14% of the overall townhome inventory! Essentially, at that rate of sales there is enough supply for just 6 months. If you are considering selling your townhome now would be a good time indeed!
There are a total of 56 foreclosures amongst the entire listing inventory. That is an overall change of 11 listings to the total number of foreclosures from August,2009 to September,2009.
