While Kamloops has an ideal variety of property types, one of the biggest buyer challenges is the city's current seller's market. Those who want to move to the city may be concerned about high buyer competition and limited opportunity to find the exact home they set their sights on. While you should never have to settle on a home that is anything but your dream come true, as a buyer you do have some challenges to navigate. On the other hand, those planning on selling their homes may be able to enjoy the benefits of high demand from buyers, competing bids, and the opportunity to have more control over the price their home sells for. If you're a Kamloops homeowner or you want to become one, here's what Team Cavaliere - River City Realty recommends when

Welcome to Kamloops, our precious hidden gem nestled in the middle of B.C.'s Southern Interior. We Kamloopsians are all too familiar with the many wonders of the city we call home, and when asked to pick the one place that we love most, many of us simply wouldn't be able to choose!

At Team Cavaliere - River City Realty, we are one of the many who would be unable to tell you just one part of Kamloops that we love best.

Our tour is going to take you through the major geographic areas that make up Kamloops: the North Shore, the South Shore, and all the rest (which

The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) has just released the numbers for real GDP growth of the United States for the final quarter of 2016 as well as for 2016 as a whole. These numbers were weaker than expected, at 1.9% growth in Q4'2016 and 1.6% growth for the year; numbers that were influenced by a variety of factors in the U.S.

Notable in this report is the prediction that this trend will not continue in 2017. Most economists are expecting the U.S. economy to achieve a growth rate of about 2.2% this year.

The pace of American economic growth could be a major factor contributing to the B.C. housing market in 2017. While an increase in growth in the U.S. usually means good things for us British Columbians, a stronger pace of

Happy New Year everyone! We hope that you have all had a happy and healthy start to 2017!

Back at the end of last year, we shared Part I of our discussion on the new B.C. HOME Partnership Program, where we talked about the potential negative effects of the new government initiative. As the Program officially kicked off yesterday, we wanted to make sure you have all the facts before making a move into the market - and that includes the good stuff too!

So, let's have a look at what we believe are some of the most significant benefits to the B.C. HOME Partnership Program:

1) The Program will enable people to enter the market more quickly.

One of the biggest hurdles faced by first-time home buyers is scraping together enough cash for the

Amongst all of the chatter circulating about the B.C. government's HOME Partnership Program, we thought we would chime in with a few thoughts of our own. While it’s easy for us to simply agree with the government's move to implement this program because we are in the real estate industry, we believe that before we can agree, we must first educate ourselves and our clients on the big picture: an all-encompassing view of both the pros and the cons of this decision.

While I do very much support the B.C. Real Estate Association as well as this government initiative, I have decided to take a different approach to discussing this topic:

What are the negatives?

Negative #1:

Long-term second mortgage = increased potential for buyers to over-extend

The Kamloops Real Estate Board residential sales statistics for November 2016 have been released, showing an increase in residential sales value of 12.3% compared to November of 2015.  The number of single family residential properties sold was identical to last year’s at  135 units sold; however, fewer homes were listed and the number of active listings was lower as well.

Though active listing numbers were comparatively lower than those of 2015, the   results do follow the trend that we see annually as we move from the busy summer months into the cold Kamloops winter, and the decrease is proportional to the level of activity that we have seen throughout 2016.

The Kamloops Median Residential Price for single family homes landed at $417,300, above

As adults, our days and weeks are often spent working, studying, exercising, cooking, cleaning, and maybe (just maybe!) getting enough sleep to stay up until 9 o'clock.
