The day all of us in the Okanagan have been waiting for, Summer is officially HERE! With the prolonged spring weather here in the Okanagan, it’s nice to see the weather changing and bringing that beautiful Okanagan sunshine we all crave. Summer in the Okanagan is when our city thrives. Welcoming back tourists to our amazing town and seeing all of the locals get out and enjoy all of the events happening after a two year hiatus.
Live, Work, Play – Summer in the Okanagan …
The Okanagan is a sought after area to live, work and play. There’s no question why its an attractive city to purchase a home in. And with the real estate market changing, it is becoming a little more attainable than the recent months. We are seeing a shift in prices, including many price reductions on already listed properties. This however, doesn’t mean its a buyers market quite yet because the market is still favoring sellers at the moment.
The Okanagan continues to attract people to own property here. Coming from out of town, and out of province, buyers are dedicated to find their own piece of paradise here in the Okanagan. Whether that’s in Peachland, at Big White Ski Resort, or in Lake Country. That’s the thing about Kelowna and area, there is a neighbourhood for everyone and anyone. No matter your price point or requirements.
Summer is also on everyone’s mind at Big White Ski Resort. With the resort now open for the summer 2021/22 season, many are making their way up the mountain to get outdoors. Enjoy mountain biking, hiking, or check out this year’s Craft & Country Music Fest on July 16th! This year, the resort is packed with events and fun for everyone. Check it all out here.
With the shift in the market, you may be left wondering where that places you and your situation. If you are planning on selling, are you curious what the price drops mean for the value of your home? If you’re buying, are you wondering if now is the time to make an offer on that home you’ve been humming and hawing over?
