February 9, 2023 Interior Real Estate Resale and Pre-Sale Market Update



Like in the Lower Mainland, rising interest rates have caused a decline in demand and impacted the post-pandemic market gains across markets in the Interior region of BC. We expect the trend to persist in 2023 as market activity slows and buyers and sellers negotiate prices. Despite the anticipation of an increase in supply, we anticipate that sellers will only be motivated to sell if they receive prices close to what was achieved in early 2022, at the market's peak.

Single-family homes in Central and South Okanagan showed a moderate decrease in value, with a 7.9% and 6.6% decline year-over-year, respectively. On the other hand, the townhome and condominium prices in most major interior markets were less affected. The North Okanagan region was particularly noteworthy in January, as it saw an appreciation in townhome and condominium prices year-over-year.
